The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development (MHRSD) has launched the “Professional Verification” programme, in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Technical and Vocational Training Corporation. The programme aims to verify that all skilled workers in KSA have the required skills to effectively perform the occupation they were recruited for. This will also include practical and theoretical examinations in the workers’ specialised fields. The programme will be gradually enforced commencing July 2021, depending on the company size; however, employers are able to register for the programme as from 8 March 2021.
