Caribbean’s first Energy Institute opens Tuesday

At least six of Trinidad and Tobago’s Cabinet Ministers will gather at Brechin Castle, Couva, tomorrow, when the University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT) and the National Energy Skills Centre (NESC) launch the English-speaking Caribbean’s first ever Energy Institute. Science Technology and Tertiary Education Minister Fazal Karim, Planning and Economy Minister Bhoendradatt Tewarie, People and Social Development Minister Glenn Ramadhar Singh, Labour Minister Errol McLeod, Foreign Affairs and Communication Minister Suruj Rambahacn, and Trade Minister Stephen Cadiz will all attend the launch of the UTT/NESC Energy Institute of Trinidad and Tobago at the UTT Energy Campus on Esperanza Road. The Institute will open on premises formerly held by the NESC.

Training is expected to begin shortly after the launch with full-time and part-time courses being offered. Trinidad and Tobago has long been investing in training its people to take jobs in its very lucrative oil industry. To date, the NESC has opened training centres at La Brea, Laventille, Mayaro, Moruga, Point Fortin, Point Lisas, Set Madeiline and Tobago. In addition, the UTT has maintained an Energy Campus for the same purpose.
