Wednesday, March 6, 2019 – The Hinterland Electrification Company Inc. (HECI) in collaboration with the Government Electrical Inspectorate (GEI) are two agencies under the purview of the Ministry of Public Infrastructure. The HECI and GEI are currently conducting Electrical certification training across Guyana within the hinterland regions.

Over the weekend the team conducted training in Kwakwani where thirty-four (34) practicing electricians participated in the training. After the training session a total of thirty-two (32) participants wrote the final assessment and seven (7) were successful. The seven (7) successful participants were then given an opportunity to apply for a contractor’s license.

The team will be facilitating training throughout the months of March through June to Lethem, Mahdia, Port Kaituma and Mabaruma. The HECI and GEI invites all practicing electricians within the aforementioned areas to take full advantage of the free training that is being offered by the Ministry’s qualified personnel.

This training is geared at equipping hinterland practicing electricians who may have performed electrical installation for years, but lack the necessary academics or those who may have attended a technical institution, but, however, may not have acquired the requisite years of experience to qualify for a license. Additionally, the team seeks to bring those persons up to standard and to educate them on the theoretical aspects of electrical installation.

The Ministry wishes to extend congratulations to those who would have successfully completed the training held in Kwakwani. We also implore all practicing electricians in the aforementioned communities to get involve when the team visits your area.
