The Academy of Defense Industries, which was established in 2022 under the guidance of the General Authority for Military Industries (GAMI), started registration for training, qualifying and empowering national human resources at relevant government agencies and private companies.

The Academy plays a vital role in achieving the localization goals of the military industries in the Kingdom; it contributes to the fulfillment of supply chain plans and aims to localize over 50% of military spending by 2030.

The Academy is a key initiative of GAMI’s human resources development strategy. It aims to develop human resources, foster innovation in military industries, and enhance knowledge and capabilities in the Kingdom. It also aims to help meet the labor market demands, and strengthen the military industries supply chain.

The Academy strives to become one of the top global centers of technical excellence in the military industries by 2030, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

The Academy’s management council is composed of representatives from both the public and private sectors, with support from the Public Authority for Technical and Vocational Training and industrial companies.

On 22 May 2022, GAMI announced the establishment of the National Academy of Defense Industries in the Saudi capital Riyadh. On this occasion, GAMI Governor Eng. Ahmad Abdulaziz Al-Ohali said that this Academy will be the biggest supporter for the strategy of the sector that counts on the national human resources, pointing out that the localization of technologies is connected with the localization of the capabilities of the national human resources.

He added that the authority is committed to supporting the national human personnel, noting that the military industries sector in Saudi Arabia has witnessed qualitative leaps over the past five years.

The GAMI Governor further praised the special care and the big interest and support that the military and defense industries sector receives in Saudi Arabia from the government of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and the Crown Prince, to embody the ambitious vision towards enhancing the strategic independence of Saudi Arabia and building a local and sustainable military industries sector.

The headquarters of the National Academy of Military Industries is located over an area of 65,000 square meters and a capacity of around 2,000 students, where the premises of the Academy were established according to the best international standards and pioneering international criteria in the technical and vocational education, where the Academy comprises the latest technologies in training and education, digital laboratories, and virtual and augmented reality technologies.
