Smart training rooms launched for Dubai Customs staff
New smart training rooms at the Customs Training Centre, specifically developed to raise training standards and offer an attractive positive environment for both trainees and trainers, were inaugurated by the director general of Dubai Customs, Ahmed Mahboob Musabih.
This year, the Customs Training Centre of Dubai Customs carried out 203 training courses with a total of 2,611 training hours in which 2,473 employees were enrolled. Customs staff completed around 1,546 training hours across 123 new specialised programmes.
"Training and development is a top priority for us at Dubai Customs, and it is a joint responsibility of both employees and the organisation to ensure it is done efficiently and professionally with expected outcomes,” Musabih said.
Fareed Al Marzooqi, executive director for human resources, finance and administration, added that the development of the Customs Training Centre would be in phases, with the first phase seeing the development of six training rooms with different designs and themes.
The newly-designed rooms have been equipped with the latest smart technologies and tools to enhance employees’ training experience and bolster performance, according to Al Marzooqi.
He added that the focus is on delivering most courses through smart screens while minimizing the use of paper to ensure environment sustainability and support Dubai’s drive to become the world’s first paperless government by the end of 2021.
