Inauguration Ceremony of the Basic Courses at the ‘Antonio de Escaño’ Specialty School – Royal Saudi Naval Program AVT-2200

Today's ceremony marks the beginning of the 8-week training program at the Spanish Navy Schools in Ferrol (NW Spain).

On this occasion, the Navy is hosting the first Royal Saudi Navy enlisted personnel at one of its facilities.

Today, a simple ceremony took place in the Main Lecture Hall of the School of Specialties ‘Antonio de Escaño’, under strict sanitary prevention measures against COVID-19, to inaugurate the basic specialty courses expressly designed for the crews of the Saudi corvettes which are currently being built in Spain.

The ceremony was presided over by the Superintendents of the ESCAÑO and ESENGRA Schools. In addition to the 49 Saudi trainees and other Royal Saudi Navy personnel representing the AVT-2200 Program office, representatives of the AVT-2200 Training Program and the Director of NAVANTIA's Turbine Program also attended the ceremony, as well as the coordinator and a representation of the Schools’ lecturers.

With the 8-week training period for the first Saudi crew, which starts today at the ESCAÑO and ESENGRA Schools, and which will continue later at San Fernando, the Spanish Navy reaffirms its support to the national Defense industry, particularly to the Saudi Naval Program.

The basic specialty courses will also be extended to the rest of the personnel which make up the other Saudi crews of the five corvettes that NAVANTIA is building at its shipyards in San Fernando. These personnel will successively join the Ferrol Schools as the instruction and operational training programs are finally devised.
