solutions, adopted by most training service providers, will not be effective
enough to address the training needs of Iraqi personnel to yield the required
professional training goals, due to the unique situation in Iraq. Iraqi
personnel require extensive training in all disciplines.
Reflecting on the above, Al
Delma adopts tailored and client-specific training plans that ensure best
integration between the training local contents and the training related
international standards and norms. Al Delma believes that no real developments
can take place in Iraq without bridging the knowledge gap that has widened over
the years, and thus all training aspects need to be considered.
Al Delma addresses training
requirements in all industries, most important of which the oil and gas
industry, the main industry of Iraq. Like other major industries in the world,
this industry requires competencies and capabilities in all disciplines,
technical and none technical, such as engineering, management, safety,
At Al Delma we believe in what
we do, and are dedicated to and enthusiastic about, achieving results. We are
motivated by our goals and thrive on the accomplishments we make.
Al Delma adopts a unique
training methodology to adapt to the training needs in Iraq. Al Delma realizes
that the real challenge in the training process lies in the proper
communications with the modern technologies provided by the international oil
and gas companies. With the language as an obstacle, Al Delma started with
delivering English language training courses, aided by computer skills courses,
to prepare the Iraqi personnel for receiving training in other disciplines in a
language other than their mother-tongue. Having achieved that, Al Delma went on
to deliver training in all disciplines of the oil and gas industry. It now,
professionally delivers technical and none technical training courses in a
diversity of fields.
Al Delma’s instructors possess
considerable expertise in different training fields in Iraq, with long years in
the most reputable Iraqi educational institutes. Al Delma aims to leverage from
these valuable assets to establish a local bridge for International Oil
Companies and international training providers, to enable them to achieve their
goals smoothly and effectively. Al Delma strongly believes that time is of
great essence and this urges the need for an exceptional plan that addresses
training the trainee and on-the –job training.

with local and international training related standards and norms.
Al Delma employs the
“four-step training scheme” namely, Knowledge, Preparation, Selection Criteria,
Planning and Execution. The content of any specific training is very essential
and therefore, the selection of the right syllabus is crucial to ensure the
right start step. Once the content that conforms to the specific training, is
agreed upon, a good preparation would be required to ensure the best
utilization of the offered knowledge. An important element in the training
sequence is the selection criteria, “who are your targeted trainees?” When all the
fore mentioned sequences have completed, a detailed planning procedure will be
considered to ensure efficient execution and implementation of the training
“KNOWLEDGE – PREPARATION-
SELECTION CRITERIA- PLANNING and EXECUTION”
Al Delma continuously strives
to acquire the best possible knowledge from all of the available sources. The
instructors are knowledge motivated and directed to continuously acquire the
state of the art in their professions and maintain high educational levels. Al
Delma continues to approach the elite international training providers to get
and implement the most efficient updated training programs. It plays an
essential role to the international training providers for the following
awareness and knowledge.
presence in most of hubs in Iraq
- Knowledge of
the clients’ actual training requirements
communications and relationships with Iraqi clients
capabilities of projects implementation with quality
- Ability of
providing state-of-the-art local training facilities
records in executing training contracts
competencies of their instructors
of in-house training facility.
- Ability to
provide in-country and out of country training facilities
Basically, the training
programs are addressed according to the clients’ requirements and based on a
pre- agreement related to a specific program. Once the content of the training
program is agreed upon, preparation takes place to manipulate and express the
details of the required training program. Usually, clients define their own
needs based on their understanding of the required programs. Al Delma’s role is
to build the bridge between the clients’ thoughts and the updated knowledge
available for a specific program. The fundamentals of the training programs are
the same, but the best training delivery methods are changed and updated
frequently, and in many cases they go beyond clients’ expectations. Therefore,
to arrive at a specific training program, a thorough discussion is needed
between all parties concerned to ensure all are on the same page. Preparation
also needs to ensure the best communications with the knowledge that best suits
the purpose of the training.
The selection criteria for the
training candidates are the most important step Al Delma considers. Any
training shall not be successful if the trainees’ capacities do not match the
training level. Basically, pre-evaluation tests are conducted to ensure
acceptable match. However, a constructive dialogue with the concerned clients
is a must to ensure utmost harmony. Al Delma has many case histories to tell
about this crucial parameter. The most advanced training programs in
conjunction with the best training facilities would not yield efficient results
without the right trainees. This is why Al Delma pays a considerable attention
to the trainees’ selection criteria.
Planning & Execution
Once agreed on the content of
the training program and the selection of the trainees, Al Delma adopts a detailed
plan that encompasses the following:
of the training materials

- Safety plan

and knowledge gained by Al Delma over the years in executing training projects,
Al Delma has established an efficient execution plan that shall ensure delivery
to the best interest of the client, and ensure the most effective way of
kicking the contract in a way that meets, if not exceeds the expectations of
