The company's Jaheziya, Knowledge Point, and ETS businesses will be brought together under the Jaheziya brand as a result of the move and remain in the company's Mission Support cluster. The move will combine a variety of business functions and outputs, including Jaheziya's firefighting and emergency response training, Knowledge Point's defence and security education and training capabilities, and ETS's complex systems engineering and integration efforts.
