Bapco Diploma Programme (Apprenticeship)


Bapco has a long and distinguished history and over many decades has made a major contribution to the Kingdom of Bahrain. In order to do this, we have always placed great importance on developing our own people. It is matter of great pride that we are able to contribute not just to the nation’s progress, but also to the development of a highly-skilled and experienced workforce.

Since 2017, we have offered a structured Diploma programme (Apprenticeship) which guarantees employment upon successful completion. The programme has been designed to provide both the practical and theoretical training units tailored to the technical specialisms of our industry; training takes place at the Oil and Gas Academy’s well-resourced facilities and in the Refinery itself so trainees can gain experience in the work setting.

Diploma programmes have been offered to date in Oil & Gas Operations and Mechanical Engineering. In 2019, three further programmes will be offered in Oil and Gas Operations, Electrical Engineering and Instrumentation and Control.

A Foundation year comprises such elements as English language, Maths, Science, Workplace Skills, IT, HSE and an introduction to Upstream and Downstream Operations. Two further years are devoted to the discipline-relevant technical subjects so that trainees acquire the knowledge and practical skills required to be ready to join the Company as employees.

Employment with Bapco offers attractive salary and benefits, job security, development opportunities and the opportunity to play a part in the development of the economic growth of the Kingdom of Bahrain.
