There are countless opportunities for underwater welders to perform projects, like repairing and building ships, working on oil platforms, and repairing or installing pipelines.

They are in high demand in the oil and gas industries as many of their structures are found beneath the water.

This project aims to train and qualify 160 young men to work as underwater welders, to be hired by a number of oil companies and maritime shipping and marine construction companies in Egypt and Arab countries. The training will be delivered by Arab Academy for Science and Technology and Maritime Transport as well as Youth Association for Population and Development.

This project is the second to be funded by SFSD in cooperation with Youth Association. The first one succeeded in qualifying 120 young people in lifesaving and first aid and certified them in water rescue.
