UAE launches 2015 mGovernment training programme
Programme aims to ensure staff are able to support mGovernment initiatives
UAE mGovernment has announced the launch of the 2015 mGovernment Training Programme. The programme, which is targeted at federal and local government employees, aims to develop competencies to support mGovernment initiatives.
The educational training programme consists of a variety of events and training courses, designed specifically to meet the needs of all parties across the UAE relevant to the mGovernment initiative. The training courses and events assist subscribers by providing a new level of understanding that promotes their ability to access high-value smart services.
The programme will also target university students and jobseekers.
The training programme aims to spread the culture of smart transformation across the UAE, as it promotes expertise in national talent to correspond with the ongoing changes. It drives the enhancement of knowledge of ICT professionals in government bodies, sharpens the skills of university students and raises their level of awareness on the shift towards a smart government. This training is designed to further implement the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai.
"Following the great success of the mGov training programme in 2014, we are keen to have individuals participating from all the emirates, as we begin the 2015 edition. By showcasing smart services, information technology, security applications and development we are enforcing the efficiency desired in the mGovernment initiative. It is encouraging to see the numbers of individuals actively participating in the programme and positively responding to our efforts. As such, we would like to thank the federal government bodies for their support and ongoing interest to achieve the vision of our nation," said HE Hamad Obaid Al Mansoori, director general of the UAE mGovernment.
"It is necessary to also involve the nation's youth and upcoming workforce in the mGovernment training programme, as they are an integral component of the UAE's transition into a smart nation. We believe that this era's job seekers and university students need to constantly stay updated and hold the necessary qualifications, regardless of which emirate they reside in," he added.
The mGovernment training will be held through distance-learning techniques and face-to-face sessions, so that participants can complete courses at their convenience. Participants may take advantage of the content of these courses, using their personal computers and smart devices, such as their tablets and smartphones.
