The ‘mGovernment Initiative’ has recently launched a special e-portal that enables users to register for the mGovernment training programs. These programs are aimed at preparing and training nationals from various government entities at both federal and local levels. The step is part of an integrated strategy aimed towards successfully achieving the smart government transformation process in the United Arab Emirates over the next year.
The platform will act as a reliable source for getting detailed and precise information about training programs and courses. It also features a search engine that enables the browser to find the appropriate course according to the emirate or according to the topic requested. Moreover, the website offers trainees an initial test before starting the courses. In addition, it enables them to apply for the final test through the website after completing the training period. Successful trainees will also be able to get their training certificate signed electronically.
Commenting on this step, H.E. Hamad Obaid Al Mansouri, Deputy Director General for Information and e-Government Sector at the TRA said: "The launch of this platform gives a strong impetus to the mGovernment Training Project which contributes significantly to promoting a knowledge-based culture and economy in general, while raising awareness on the mGovernment concepts in particular.”
Engineer Majid Al Madhloum, Project Director of Mobile Government Training Program commented: "The launch of the mGovernment training portal will facilitate the training process and enable better access to the mGovernment programs and courses offered by this initiative; thus reaching a larger segment of those interested in developing their skills to keep up with the mobile government transformation process.”
"We call on all government entities in the UAE to seize this opportunity and register their employees who are interested in obtaining appropriate training in the mGovernment transformation project, according to the requirements and field of work in each entity. We would like to emphasize that the content of the courses are very rich and instructive as they were designed carefully and thoroughly to benefit and prepare the trainees to achieve the needed results” he added.
The training courses will include various important topics including the management of smart services in the UAE, the mGovernment IT infrastructure, security of smart applications and smart application developers, as this topic is essential for all who support the mGovernment initiative and seek to understand mechanisms for developing smart applications.
The training website was designed with LMS system and will soon feature a video that will explain more about these training sessions. For more information, please visit the link: http://mgovtraining.government.ae
