His Excellency Dr. Raid Mohammed Bin Shams, Director-General of the Bahrain Institute of Public Administration (BIPA) reconfirms the fact that BIPA has been one of the government organizations in the Kingdom of Bahrain to subscribe to Amazon Internet Services system (AWS) by hosting the electronic training system (LMS) on Amazon Cloud computer system and that such subscription reflect BIPA's aspirations to assume a regional pioneering status for providing, making available and enhancing e- training services, products and solutions, contributing to sustainability and growth of Arabic e-training contents, which are in line with the values of BIPA and are designed to achieve inspiring leadership that transcends our expectations.
Bin Shams explained that the BIPA's success in approving Amazon's cloud computerization system in the e-training programs offered to all ministries, organizations and agencies in both the private and public sectors has contributed to a saving of 98% in the annual cost of the training programs, besides being relieved of the venue and time restrictions, reduction of training durations and allowing a trainee the opportunity and freedom in selecting the appropriate training modules.
