All these years and efforts are followed by quality distinguished outcomes, that serves inside and outside the institution in the private and public sector.

In the year 2010-2011, the center began providing training services to employees of other sectors from outside the institution after the approval of the institution’s board of directors on the investment operation of the center, within the framework of the commercial transformation project for the center’s work, as it attracted many clients in the government and private sectors, from inside and outside the Kingdom.
