They say a picture is worth a thousand words. The recent picture of the UAE Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum receiving the trial coronavirus vaccine has given an enormous boost and a huge ray of hope for the citizens in the country. This picture simply reiterates his words that ‘the future is always better and more beautiful in the United Arab Emirates’. Dr. Omar Al Hammadi, the official spokesperson for the UAE Government, has stated that the Covid-19 mortality rate is the lowest globally at 0.4%. Reflecting this optimism, the UAE Cabinet has approved the 2021 federal budget with estimated spending of Dh 58.113 Billion which will ensure that the UAE will be among the quickest nations to recover in 2021.

At Blue Ocean, we have always supported and supplemented the efforts of the UAE Government. In order to give a further boost to the Government’s efforts to quickly revive the economy and to celebrate the upcoming 49th National Day, Blue Ocean Academy once again offers an opportunity to UAE Nationals to obtain free training. In April 2020, when a similar scheme was launched as part of the Covid-19 relief efforts, hundreds of Emiratis benefitted by upskilling themselves and many even found better job opportunities by virtue of the free training provided by Blue Ocean Academy. "Thank you for the training, I really enjoyed and learned from it. This will always be one of the best classes I've attended," said Hamad Qasem, who is working with Dubai Islamic Bank. He had attended the free training for UAE nationals conducted in April.

The students have the advantage of learning from their homes or offices as the Academy is offering live and interactive virtual sessions. These online training sessions of Blue Ocean have been highly appreciated by the students due to the personalized learning experience and interactivity. Till date, nearly 10,000 students have attended our online training sessions and free webinars on industry-specific topics. This fresh offer for free training will allow people in the UAE to learn from industry experts and earn international certification to become more valuable for their organizations. The UAE nationals can enroll themselves for the courses as well as nominate others in their circle. They can choose a course which will be suitable for their career and interests.

“This is a great opportunity for the people in the UAE to get certified in their profession and earn an international certification. Professional training and certification can certainly help them to perform better at workplace or find exciting job opportunities,” commented Dr. Sathya Menon, CEO of Blue Ocean Academy.

Free training is provided for the following courses

  • Certified International Supply Chain Professional/Manager (CISCP-CISCM)
  • Certified Purchasing Professional/Certified Professional Purchasing Manager (CPP-CPPM)
  • Certified International Commercial Contracts Manager (CICCM)
  • Certified International Sourcing Manager (CISM)
  • Certified Lean Management Professional (CLMP)
  • Certified Human Resource Professional/Manager (CHRP-CHRM)
  • Certified Office Administrator (COA)
  • Six Sigma Green Belt/Black Belt

While training is offered free of cost, the students will have to pay the examination fee to the concerned international certification body. The last date for registration is Dec 5, 2020.

"Blue Ocean Academy is inspired by the great initiatives in the UAE including the ‘One Million Arab Coders’ (OMAC). As OMAC seeks to train one million young Arabs in computer programming, in order to empower and equip them with the skills they need to face the challenges of the future, it shows the ministry’s relentless efforts to build a knowledge-based economy. On the UAE national day, Blue Ocean Academy is proud to launch the Arabic training division offering the prestigious international certification programs in Arabic language. We are happy to launch this free training initiative which supports the nation’s goal to educate the youngsters,” remarked Mohamed Al Ali, the Vice Chairman of Blue Ocean Academy.
