Re: Request for Training for Curtain Wall Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I don't think you understand their culture which is common among many from this side.  I will repeat what a class-mate told me who worked in the United Arab Emirates for a year as an instructor in aircraft maintenance.  I hope this is not taken the wrong way, but some will.  Many of his students were there to learn a profession, but they really did not want to be a worker but rather a boss.  It was very difficult to overcome this attitude that they would get somebody else to do the physical work.  It permeates a lot of their society.  We can see evidence of this in the large numbers of outside workers who are hired to do all the manual labour in the middle east countries, but there are no signs of local talent except in supervisory roles.  When they have to hire outside supervisors or managers, they want North American or European personnel because they have proven to be the best or top notch.  I don't want to drag this out any longer, but I would like to hear from somebody who can refute my friend's explanation.

Okay, I don't get this. If this is a "curtain wall company" that has thirty engineers, why do they need outside training for their junior staff?

Since this is a specialty, there are going to be relatively few experts - and one would assume that a good many of those would be employed by the company itself.

What am I missing here?
