A Norwich company specialising in educational resources for engineering subjects has won a contract to train military technicians in the Sultanate of Oman.
LJ Create, which is based at Bowthorpe Industrial Estate in Norwich, will also deliver hardware and curriculum materials to the Oman Military Technological College (MTC) as part of a multimillion pound contract.
The partnership between LJ Create and MTC began in 2014, when the educational resource company provided the college with two laboratories of science equipment and curriculum materials in preparation for a projected 5000 students by 2017.
The middle eastern state is run by absolute monarch Qaboos bin Said, who decreed the opening of the college in 2013 as a purpose-built site for the education of civilian and military technicians and engineers.
Kevin Stuart, LJ Create client services manager, said the company was pleased to have won the USA Foreign Military Sales contract with Oman for the next five years.
