Before granting Kuwait work permits, Kuwait has declared that skilled technical personnel will undergo practical examinations.
Details indicate that the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) and the Public Authority for Applied Education and Training (PAAET) have partnered on the professional system initiative for smart recruitment.
This program, which is essential to the national development plan, aligns with the First Deputy Prime Minister’s and Interior Minister Sheikh Talal Al Khaled’s directions.
PAM reports that this week will see the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with PAAET. The foundation for required technical and practical exams for skilled workers in Kuwait will be established by the Memorandum of Understanding between PAM and PAAET.
The MoU, which will shortly be signed, specifies how the examinations will be applied to particular professions and how they will be introduced progressively. It is significant to remember that the primary goal of these exams is to raise Kuwaiti workers’ technical skill levels, which is vital for the labor market’s growth.
The initiative’s first phase will concentrate on the contracting industry to improve efficiency and shield Kuwaiti families from fraud and subpar labor.
According to sources, PAM intends to implement a skill categorization system in the future that will classify employment levels according to experience and skill. But the system’s specifics are still being worked out.
