National Energy Skills Center (NESC)

The National Energy Skills Center (NESC) is a non-profit institution incorporated on July 15, 1997 with the primary purpose of building the human capital in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. It has its genesis in a Trust Deed between the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago (GORTT) and the then Atlantic LNG Company Limited, to address the pressing demand for skilled welders to work on the Atlantic LNG, Train 1 project. It was envisaged then, as the solution to the need for a premier training provider to lead national training initiatives. 

 From its first Campus at Point Fortin, the NESC now operates 11 NESC Campuses across Trinidad and Tobago. Launched in December 2013, the Company also operates the NESC Drilling Academy, a fully integrated, open-access technical training institute.

The NESC offers 3-year Journeyman Diploma programmes in Automotive and Heavy Equipment; Building Construction and Maintenance; Plant Operations and Maintenance; Welding; Information and Music Technology and Drilling Rig Programmes. In addition to these programmes, over twenty (20) part–time and full-time courses are offered at all of NESC ‘s Campuses.

The NESC remains proud of the thousands of graduates locally, regionally and internationally who continue to contribute to the economic development of their respective communities and nations.
