OGM Technical Institute Pty Ltd was established to provide internationally recognized workforce training to meet global industry demand for tradecraft skills. OGM aims to create and supply, “work ready” trainees who meet immediate industry requirements in India and worldwide.
Building from the significant success of Nasser S. Al Hajri Corporation (NSH) in the Middle East and under the vision and guidance of Dr Ravi Pillai, OGM was established in Perth, Australia in April 2012. Discussions were crystallized with assistance provided by the Australian High Commission in India. Significant work was undertaken to introduce, establish and develop pathways for Australian training with requirements matched to meet the workforce shortfalls of global resource, construction and energy industries.
OGM Technical Institute delivers Australian trade skills vocational training through accredited trainers contextualized to local industry needs at low cost enabling higher volumes of trainee graduates. Our key objective is to deliver hands on trade skills training to globally certified standards combining in class, and intern on-site training that produce proven ‘work ready’ trainee graduates.
