K-Company “Trainings”


K-Company meaning any of the Kuwait Petroleum Company and its subsidiaries (KNPC, KOTC, ODC, PIC, KOC, and all the others that I can’t remember)

I was talking to a friend who used to work for one of the K-Companies and I was just talking about how much training they do and for what exactly I’m not sure. He tells me there are some useful courses but the bad thing is how people take advantage of them and abuse these opportunities.


They are technical, managerial, financial, and a ton more.

All these courses are available between 4 countries: Kuwait, Lebanon, Egypt, and UAE.

What Happens:

The Admins and other employees tell the people who book the courses to book them in exotic countries, such as Bangkok, France, UK, Spain, US, or any other place they can find the course but not taking it locally. They would travel to these far destinations for the courses and it would be more like a vacation on the K-Company’s account. So basically they are taking free vacations.

I was honestly surprised that this was so wide spread but if the managers do it whats to stop all the employees.

A guy who is just trying to enjoy life!


  1. If they at least gain something from those courses and don’t just take them as an excuse to lay down on the beach somewhere exotic then what the heck, let them go and enjoy it .. not everyone gets to travel around, let see the world a bit, but not on the expense of ditching the course.

    What a shame. People are without scruples anymore.

  3. Happens in the government too..
    I should know.. I work in one.. Have not done that though and I don’t plan too..

  4. Shhhh!!!!!

    I’m planning on starting to run seminars in Bangkok purposefully so I can get guaranteed paid-in-advance attendees from Middle East oil companies!

    And I’m NOT joking.

    Everyone in this country seems to be stealing from it one way or the other. I WANT MY CUT too, and to hell with morality.

  7. lebinba: The thing is that they are basically taking advantage of the money. Secondly some of those courses are so simple and available they don’t need to go so far. Its basically taking money which doesn’t belong to them in a different way. Most of the time its at the expense of the course, and this is what I have heard first hand.

    jewaira: yup

    Berserk-KW: your a good man. Yeah, but these courses are rediculous!

    moocherx: looooool!

    Laialy: yup

    Purg: I don’t work there so I wouldn’t know!

    Faisal: See thats the sad part, everyone just thinks its going down so I want my cut! It sad they don’t have any morales, I dont really understand where it all went!
