Training Partnership signed with Dubai RTA

When the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) embarked on a talent development initiative for its Emirati staff, it turned to the International Road Federation to deliver a comprehensive knowledge transfer program covering a wide spectrum of operational areas.

According to the Authority, “rolling out this program is in line with the national drive to invest in nationals by giving them exposure to customised training on relevant fields to enhance their knowledge, skills and competency. The ultimate objective is to groom and empower them to support the development efforts in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Enhancing the abilities of local staff also contributes to the seventh principle of the 50-Year Charter of Dubai (A Land for Talent)”.

Moreover, upskilling Emirati staff on matters related to roads and traffic fits well with the high standing of the UAE’s road network as measured by the World Economic Forum’s global competitiveness ranking.

Topics include offering the safe design and management of road networks, asset management processes covering roads, bridges & tunnels, the design of sustainable pavements, contract management, leveraging roadway analytics, as well as next generation traffic control systems.
The program is being delivered as part of a framework Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2017 by Eng. Maitha bin Adai, CEO of Traffic and Roads Agency (TRA), and C. Patrick Sankey, President & CEO of the IRF. It includes 10 fields covering 45 topics and representing a total of 35 training days between October 2019 and July 2020.
