Public Authority for Applied Education and Training (PAAET) was formed when an urgent need became evident in the country for well-trained skilled manpower.  There were training centers in Kuwait before the establishment of PAAET, but the quality of their graduates was below the necessary standards, and a large proportion of the work force was underprepared and not qualified to provide the skills that were required.  The need for practical experience and in-service training programs was critical.” In addition to its training institutes, four colleges encompass the educational diploma programs with the exception of College of Basic Education that grants undergraduate degrees in various fields.College of Basic Education- College of Business Studies - College of Health Sciences and College of Technological Studies
