Seventeen employees of the Fujairah Municipality have just completed a week of intensive training that involved eight hours of input for each of the seven days (11-18 September 2011).
Organized by the Municipality’s Department of Development and Quality, the trainees were selected from many departments of the organization.
The course included a mix of lectures, discussion and workshops with resources and strategies employed from the training world.
Participants spoke of the way the training was not mere theory as it involved hands-on, practical exercises to ensure that the knowledge was adequately applied.
The regular courses are part of a process, as directed by the Government of Fujairah, to give a high level of training to staff in order to better serve the people of Fujairah and prepare leaders of national distinction.
A closing ceremony at the end of the training took place in the presence of HE Abdullah Al Hantoubi, Deputy Director of the Fujairah Municipality and heads of various departments.
Mr. Al Hantoubi gave a speech in which he encouraged the staff to pay attention to the importance of their career. He spoke about their essential role in enhancing the government’s performance and excellence as sought by the leadership of the emirate.
He said that the market is constantly changing and it is vital to improve our knowledge and be better equipped to deliver our services and expertise.
Mr. Al Hantoubi said that the Municipality was keen to invent and discover new ways to introduce its staff to modern developments and to provide updated training methods that are fun and effective.
