“Masari Program will give young trainees valuable experience that will contribute to their future successes, by enabling them to harness their academic knowledge to build their professional careers. They will learn on the job directly from department heads, have their place in a team, and will be compensated monthly to get a feel of what it is like in a fully functioning workplace environment. Our aim is that it will provide us with a pool of talent who we can nurture and develop to play important roles in the future long-term sustainable development of DHCC.”

According to the statement, “In the initial phase of the program, each three-month training pathway will see the qualified trainees embarking on professional training while given the right level of training from industry professionals.”

Each graduate who completes the DHCA training will receive certification, which will help build their credentials for future employment applications.
