Twenty nine UAE national women have obtained their International computer Driving Licence (ICDL) certificates under a training programme organised by Compubase and Tanmia, the national human resources development and employment authority. Students in Sharjah and Ajman made use of Compubase’s mobile EduBus, a wireless-network and soundproof classroom in a bus which is equipped with the latest technology, to provide a go anywhere, mobile training centre, in order to pass the certification. The training program is a part of Tanmia’s Maharat initiative which aims to enhance the skills of registered students to better position them in the job market. “To fuel the supply side of the UAE’s labour market by enhancing the skill level of UAE nationals, Tanmia training and career guidance programmes play a critical role,” says Ayesh Al-Barguthi, Tanmia’s skills development centre director. “Our partnership with CompuBase and the use of the EduBus, which reached trainees in Sharjah and Ajman, provided the basic and necessary skills required for young nationals to gain an edge in a very competitive, knowledge-based labour market and economy,” she adds. CompuBase will now use the EduBus to reach other remote locations in the UAE. “CompuBase has over the years built a standard of quality training that is superior and has helped thousands of individuals gain employment in the UAE, and our extensive use of our EduBus will make IT training available to all those who seek better opportunities in the labour market, anywhere and at any time,” says Ayman Khaleel, CompuBase’s managing director. “We are very proud that we were chosen by Tanmia to help raise the level of technology skills for UAE nationals and contribute in a positive manner towards the UAE’s long term economic viability and prosperity,” he adds. The ICDL is an internationally accepted certificate that can simplify employment procedures and assure the employer that applicants and staff have the necessary level of knowledge and competence to use common computer applications. The ICDL is a certificate of knowledge and proven competence and is based on a single agreed syllabus, which comprises training on a range of skills including basic technology concepts, word processing, spreadsheets, databases, presentations and information and communications methods.
