EEI Partnership

Started in January 2006, to give employment to SHTC students in welding with the steel worker training as a starter, followed by welding, pipe fitting and scaffolding training.
The concept of this training program is that EEI will be in charge of the skills training during daytime and SHTC will be in charge in the Moral Values and ethics at night.
