The first Field Ready programme was launched in Ghana in 2016. The programme is run under licence by the Takoradi Technical University (TTU) and delivered at the Jubilee Technical Training Centre (JTTC). The team of instructors are supported by Abayomi Olujide, Instructor Support Consultant.
The 12-month programme includes 6 months of training at TTU followed by a 6-month field placement with industry. The programme is verified under the National Service Scheme and counts as students’ ‘National Service Assignment’. Field Ready Ghana is supported by GNPC, the Petroleum Commission and other government stakeholders.
