Our efforts to combat Coronavirus COVID 19
The Saudi Technical Institute for Mining prepared an integrated plan to resume the educational process for institute trainees in light of the Corona pandemic, by preparing an integrated platform for distance education. And contributed to the tablets that the Institute provided the trainees with and began to use it some time ago in the success of this experiment. The highly qualified Training Department makes continuous efforts to ensure that all trainees participate actively in the educational process. All employees of the institute work as an integrated team to achieve the Institute's strategic goals in serving the mining industry. The institute was not only satisfied with ensuring the continuity of the remote educational process, but also was keen to continue extracurricular activities that help to refine the personality of the trainees. The meetings of the Public Speaking Club continued, as well as the work of the Digital Fabrication Lab (Fab Lab) remotely. This experience has opened wide horizons for the institute even after the end of the pandemic, as the institute will continue to benefit from the communication methods currently used to develop other operational processes in the institute and to continue remote meetings. The institute is keen to adhere to all precautionary measures to preserve the health and safety of all the institute’s employees. The institute has prepared an integrated plan for the return of trainees while maintaining safety precautions and achieving separation.
