ESI International the leading provider of project management and business analysis training, today announced it had been chosen to provide training for best practice in project management for Qatar Telecom (Qtel), the exclusive telecommunications provider in the Gulf state. Coming hard on the heels of ESI’s contract win from Dubai’s Nakheel, their appointment by Qtel is a further indication of ESI’s continued growth and influence throughout the Middle East.

Alan Garvey, Managing Director of ESI International, EMEA, commented, "Qtel adds to the variety of markets we serve and demonstrates the quality and flexibility of ESI’s training. We offer customised programmes that are truly unique to each of our customers, which are delivered by instructors that have a solid understanding of the industry and of individual business needs.”

Qtel selected ESI for its experience in corporate-wide project management training and its unrivalled reputation for quality in the performance improvement industry. ESI will train project managers with a wide range of skill sets and responsibility, ranging from managers with less than three years of experience on projects worth up to US$ 2 million to experienced project managers directing projects worth more than US$15 million. During 2007, ESI expects to train more than 100 of Qtel’s key project managers.

Qtel is committed to growing its presence throughout the Middle East and internationally. In 2004, Qtel led a consortium and won the public tender for the second mobile license in Oman, and launched its Nawras subsidiary services in March 2005, capturing more than 500,000 new customers (over 31 per cent of the Omani mobile market) in just over 20 months of operations. During 2006, the Qtel also grew its combined mobile customer base in Qatar and Oman to almost 1.5 million subscribers, an increase of over 55 per cent year-on-year.

Earlier this year, Qtel sealed the 'biggest ever telecommunications deal in the Arab world' when it acquired 51 per cent of the share capital of Kuwait-based National Mobile Telecommunications Company KSC - (Wataniya) from Kuwait Projects Company for a total cash consideration of US$3.8 billion.
