July, 18, 2012 – Simutech Multimedia—a provider of troubleshooting training software for the electrical industry headquartered in Ottawa—says its Troubleshooting Skills Series V4 software has been selected as part of a larger project to provide training in industrial vocational schools in Egypt. Congratulations!

“The demand for qualified, well-trained electricians and technicians is growing around the world,” said Warren Rhude, president and CEO of Simutech.

Simutech partner, Computek International, was awarded the contract after a competitive bidding process. Computek will be providing the software and training services as part of the contract.

The Government of Egypt has embarked on a project to revamp the training programs that are offered at the industrial vocational training schools, says Simutech. The first phase of this project is to modernize the training facilities at the schools through the establishment of virtual training laboratories. The Troubleshooting Skills package of software and course manager tools is being implemented as part of the overall training program.
