TOTAL ABK-VEDC Academy: Learning a Trade, Imparting a Passion

The Total Abu Al Bukhoosh (Total ABK) - VEDC Academy in the United Arab Emirates hosts young apprentices who sign up for a 28-month program interspersed with internships at the Middle Eastern country's offshore facilities where experienced professionals teach the future technicians, imparting their know-how and passion.

Since mid 2017, all the Total ABK-VEDC Academy staff and students have been transferred to ADNOC Technical Academy (ATA) facilities.

About Total ABK-vedc Academy

"On the campus of the Vocational Education Development Centre (VEDC) in Al Shahama, just 40 kilometers from Abu Dhabi, students returning to school are offered know-how transfer that lets them put theory into practice through hands-on work in the shop and simulation exercises.
At the end of the road, an exciting job, producing energy and more."

A Well-Oiled Curriculum

All the apprentices are monitored by an experienced mentor, tasked with guiding, evaluating and, most importantly, teaching them the ropes. Trained in their field's best practices, the young professionals will embody Total's commitment to making energy better. This type of individual support and coaching, made possible by small class sizes, also helps further each student's personal development and successful entry into the world of work.
