This was the third certificate ceremony with ADNOC Distribution and was part of AUS's mission to engage fruitfully with organizations in the emirates.
Dr. Christine Grosse, Director of the Achievement Academy, spoke at the ceremony and commended the students on their hard work. "We are very excited to be here at your graduation ceremony and delighted to have this collaboration with ADNOC. We appreciate all the efforts being made to work with us and we hope that you have enjoyed your time here at AUS," she said.
