DNV, the independent assurance and risk management provider, has formally opened THInK, its new Training Hub for Industrial Knowledge, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

The dedicated training facility, the first of its kind in the region, will offer a range of comprehensive programs, underscoring DNV’s commitment to enhancing the abilities of those entering, and already in, multiple industry sectors. Ensuring that workers have the latest skills and knowledge is essential for businesses to create a competitive advantage in a rapidly evolving and challenging industry. 

THInK will offer a personal and customizable approach to development, offering in-person, virtual, and hybrid training sessions. DNV will also make use of virtual reality (VR) technology to safely replicate hands-on experiences in high-risk industries. 

The hub will allow access to a variety of internationally accredited courses on safety, lifting, Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWP), earth-moving machinery, and scaffolding, among others. Fully customized classes can be developed and adapted to meet the specific needs of clients or industries.

“THInK will become a repository of industry knowledge that will truly allow people to realize their full potential and accelerate their development,” said Mohamed Houari, DNV Inspection’s global managing director. “This will be done through a combination of traditional training methods as well as innovative methodologies such as virtual reality and artificial intelligence.
