I would like to welcome you all to TAFAWOQ’s website!

TAFAWOQ, which means “excellence” in Arabic, is a project management centre of excellence that provides learning courses for professionals of organisations involved in the delivery of complex infrastructure projects. It is a successful partnership between Qatar Shell, Qatar Petroleum, Hamad Bin Khalifa University and Qatar University, and is affiliated with four elite global universities, making it uniquely capable of providing the training Qatar’s project professionals need.

The unparalleled capital investment programme currently underway in Qatar brings with it various challenges, many of which can only be overcome through greater efficiency and sharpened project management skills. TAFAWOQ courses include virtual learning, work based activities and face-to-face training based on the internationally recognised and accredited Shell Project Academy “Pentagon model” ensuring industry professionals receive both executive education and critically also ongoing competence development support.

TAFAWOQ’s curriculum is designed to increase participants’ competencies and skills across all levels of project management proficiency. Every trainee, from new entrants to the field of project management to senior project professionals, will come away from the programme able to elevate their organisation’s project capabilities. This leads to better business outcomes and, ultimately, a stronger Qatar.

From our beginning in 2012, TAFAWOQ, has expanded every year to create and grow a robust project management community in Qatar and the region. Our more than 900 graduates continue to network, share best practices and improve themselves and their peers, and we hope you will join them.
