UAE frontline professionals will be provided with accredited emergency and disaster management training through a new comprehensive programme that is recognised internationally for medical and emergency response.
The training is in partnership with The Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak Volunteer Programme and the Frontline Heroes Office.
The training initiative called Jaheziya will enhance the knowledge and skills of frontline professionals at all levels who play a critical role in protecting the people of the UAE during emergencies.
It will also provide frontline heroes with highly valuable career development through the opportunity to achieve internationally recognised accredited certification in specialised disaster response.
The Jaheziya programme is being offered to all medical professionals, ambulance and rescue team members, staff working in a wide range of emergency and crisis response departments and all professionals and volunteers on the Frontline Heroes Office registry.
The programme is structured to be self-sustaining, to provide for long-term capacity building. The highest performing candidates will be nominated to participate in specialised instructor courses.
Sheikh Sultan bin Tahnoun Al Nahyan, Chairman of the Board of the Frontline Heroes Office said, "As a nation, we have a responsibility to our people to invest in and maintain the highest level of emergency and disaster response capabilities to protect the UAE from potential threats to public safety today and for generations to come. At the same time, we owe it to our frontline professionals to provide them with the highest standards of professional training available both for their career development as well as to best enable them to deliver on the commitment they make every day to serve their nation."
