Training 14 Emirati students on engineering fields
(Al Falasi: We support Emiratisation, give priority to affiliates of our training programme)
Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has completed the training of 14 Emirati students majoring in electromechanical fields at the Abu Dhabi Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training. The training was conducted as part of RTA’s practical training programme launched in 2008 to offer Emirati students exposure to practical skills in fields relevant to RTA.
“We have inducted 14 Emirati students from the Abu Dhabi Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training as part of RTA’s practical training programme. The programme aims to hone the skills of affiliates studying in various universities and specialist centres and instil them with practical skills,” said Mansour Al Falasi, Director of Human Resources and Development, Corporate Administrative Support Services Sector, RTA.
“Enrolled students were trained at the Rail Agency, Traffic and Roads Agency and Public Transport Agency, and were awarded certificates from RTA.
These certificates give them an edge when RTA is considering recruiting Emiratis,” he noted.
The programme also includes school graduates intending to pursue their academic studies. It is noteworthy that the programme only admits Emiratis specialised in fields relevant to RTA business such as engineering, technology and administration.
“RTA is always keen to offer an attractive environment for Emiratis and enrich them with knowledge and skills in line with the 7th principle of Dubai Governing Charter (A Land for Talent) aimed to transform Emiratis into a key player of the UAE prosperity,” added.
