The first training session, which was designed and executed by Areva University, has already concluded with the presentation of training certificates to the participants.

Speaking after the conclusion of the first session, Arvea chief commercial executive officer Tarik Choho said the company is committed to supporting Chinese utilities in the development of their skills.

”This contract reflects CNNC’s recognition of our dual expertise in the fields of training and project management. It strengthens our relationship with this important customer," Choho added.

The contract award is based on the university’s educational expertise as well as the know-how of the 6,000 professionals that are part of the Engineering & Project division, according to the company.
