Riyadh, July 16: Saudi Arabia has made a qualification test must for all Saudi and expatriate engineers to obtain licenses to work in the country. The decision has been taken by the engineering offices at the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI), Arabnews.com reported. The JCCI took the decision in the wake of discovery of 1,200 fake certificates of expat engineers working on projects in previous years by Saudi Council of Engineers (SCE). “All engineers will have to pass technical tests and a deal has been struck with the National Center for Assessment in Higher Education (Qiyas) for this. There will be two tests – the first is on the principles and basics of engineering for fresh graduates and the second for engineers who have completed 10 years of service to qualify them for project director’s post,” the head of engineering offices at JCCI Talal Samarqandi said
“Out of 200,000 engineers working in the Kingdom, 1,200 were found to have submitted fake certificates.The engineers are accredited and there is a new system to qualify them, he said. He said an engineer, especially fresh graduate, has to do certain courses annually to ensure continuity of his professional license.ndians are the preferred community in Saudi Arabia for their high quality of technical expertise and discipline and the capacity to adjust well with the Saudi social life. Indians have the reputation of peaceful being and not given to illegal activities.- Courtesy
