Message from the Chairman

Driven by robust energy and industrial sectors, the Saudi Arabian economy is among the largest in the world. To fuel further growth in the Kingdom's economy and meet the demand of future generations, significant capital investment is forecasted in the oil & gas, power, mining, petrochemicals, manufacturing, and construction sectors. To ensure that such expansions are executed with the highest safety and quality standards, it is imperative to have a workforce of competent and qualified inspection and quality assurance professionals.

To fulfill such workforce requirements for the Kingdom, a strategic partnership between Saudi Aramco, the Technical & Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC), and Colleges of Excellence (CoE) was formed to create the Inspection Technology and Quality Assurance National Institute (ITQAN).

ITQAN was created with a vision to be the leading training institute in the area of inspection and quality assurance disciplines. This inspiring vision is achieved through state-of-the-art facilities, technology-based training and certification, quality curriculums and academic programs, as well as a team of international and experienced staff from the world's major industrial centers.

At ITQAN, we are proud to be at the forefront of inspection technologies talent development, serving the career aspirations of our younger generation and providing them with a unique opportunity to play a pivotal role in the rapid industrialization and expansion of the Kingdom's economy. Our commitment to academic excellence ensures that our qualified and motivated graduates are sought after by the major industries as well as our industrial partners, providing them with exciting and fulfilling careers and growth potential.
