RTA programme grooms Emirati engineers

Dubai: Emirati engineers working for the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will have another chance to enhance their skills through the fourth edition of Qiyadi Programme launched by the RTA.

The two-year programme is designed to enrich the knowledge and diversify the skills of Emirati engineers.

“About 20 Emirati staff engineers have been enrolled under the fourth cycle of Qiyadi aimed at nurturing their knowledge and skills in order to keep them compatible with their assigned tasks and career development plans,” said Mansour Al Falasi, Director of Human Resources and Development at RTA’s Corporate Administrative Support Services Sector.

The programme is built on three pillars. The first is technical and has been undertaken with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). It is designed to enable trainees to handle practical projects, offering them exposure to technical experience qualifying them as Chartered Engineers and gain the permanent membership of the ICE.

The second pillar is focused on leadership and has been run in conjunction with the Innovation Hub at Middlesex University London.

The third pillar caters to the health aspect and is conducted in cooperation with Dr. Dana Hamawi. It provides customised programmes for participants to educate them about the health and physical requirements that will help them in handling work related stress.
