The Institute of Technical Training officially opened in 2000 to address the growing technical training requirements in Kuwait and the GCC states.


ITT is a subsidiary of Mass Consultants and Services (MCS), the industrial and public relations consultancy that has been delivering training programs in Kuwait since 1979. In establishing ITT, MCS has consolidated its commitment to continue providing quality and relevant training programs throughout the region.


In its pursuit of excellence in training ITT formed partnerships with reputable international licensors and certifying bodies, and established a fully-equipped state-of-the art laboratory. As a result, the Institute garnered recognition and approval from Kuwait’s highest academic and professional bodies – the Public Authority for Applied Education and Training (PAAET) and the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC).


ITT is committed to the development and growth of technical training in the Arabian Gulf. Today, it continues to grow its list of international partnerships and professional affiliations, ensuring always that cutting edge training and facilities are on tap to meet the needs of its valued clients.


Mass Consultants and Services (MCS) was established in 1970 as Kuwait’s first industrial and public relations consultancy. As one arm of the sister company – IMCO, Canar and Mass – MCS has long worked within Kuwait’s oil and security sectors identifying important niche markets relevant to the development and growth of these industries.
The diverse range of projects include

  • Publishing
  • Security Printing
  • IS turnkey solutions and integration
  • Testing and certification

MCS’s first foray into training began in 1979, with the establishment of its first technical training programs in the oil and military sectors. The company identified a growing need for professional, quality training for industries specific to the Gulf, and in 2000 established the Institute of Technical Training.
