An event to promote the awareness of benefits from e-training opportunities within the UAE is to take place in Dubai later this month.

The day-long event sponsored by New Horizons and meBank and organised by the Global Training Centre and Knowledge Village is to be held on April 30 at the JW Marriott and aims to promote the opportunities available through e-learning to the IT community in the region.

“The prime objective of the event is to create an awareness among the people and help them to understand the subject better so that they can pursue e-learning,” said Abdulqader Al Khaja, general manager for the Global Training Centre.

Dr Abdullah Al Karam, director of the Knowledge Village, said he saw the event as providing a platform for those who wanted to identify new opportunities through the potential of e-learning.

“This event is held at a time when we are hearing a lot about e-commerce, e-government, e-banking, e-training. However many people are not sure how to address and handle some of these developments,” he said.

Dr Abdullah said the flexible work-schedule advantages offered by e-learning would allow employees to learn whilst not distracting from their regular duties. “E-learning can play a key role in helping solve this problem and many people are pursuing this.”

Despite the current events in the region, the organisers are expecting attendance to reach between 150-200 delegates. The conference aims to create opportunities for government officials and the private sector.
