KUWAIT CITY, March 9: The Public Authority for Manpower has linked more professions of residents in the country to academic qualifications to regulate the labor market and prevent marginal workers from obtaining designations that would enable them to benefit from various advantages linked to the titles of work permits, reports Al-Qabas daily. PAM has added 6 new titles to the work permits such as swimming lifeguard, diving instructor, scuba diving instructor, water skiing coach, and water skiing supervisor. In order to grant these titles, the commission stipulated that the person should have a higher education certificate known and a diploma in the respective discipline.
The approved titles related to the scientific level exceeded 1,800 professions that are registered with the authority’s automated system, and more titles are expected to be added during the coming period. In addition, an informed source told Al-Qabas the names that were linked are part of the Gulf Manual for Professional Description and Employment, which contains 4,109 professions. PAM added that work is underway to identify occupational titles in the labor market, link them to automated systems, and assess the need according to the issued licenses, indicating that this procedure is a commitment by the GCC countries to standardize the names and symbols of their professions in the labor market.
