The BIPA’s Advisor of Guidance and Training, Yusuf Al Bader, has stated that BIPA is currently leading a Gulf initiative for unified standards of certified coaches to serve the training needs in the region and ensure high qualification of trainers based on a precise mechanism, which guaranties the best systematic standards of high quality training and copes with recent developments of public administration. Al Bader added that the institutes of public administration recognize the need for qualifying GCC human resources with reliance on latest academic theories and practical training methods. In pursuit of such objective, they started to prepare a guide, which aims at developing the GCC certified trainer program. He said that this guide will contribute to improving the training outcomes, giving the chance to regular reviews and developments of the certified methodology to keep abreast of latest training developments. He indicated that the guide will allow training institutions and government authorities to evaluate trainers’ efficiency, potentials and skills. Al Bader said that concentrating on training proficiency and qualification has recently become a pressing need in the light of the growing importance of the training process and its relationship to the sustainable development processes; particularly in the Gulf region in which human capital is one of the richest resources. He added that in the light of increased commercial training institutions that offer trainers’ qualifying programs, there must be specific standards for certified trainers, tools for putting such standards into action and evaluation mechanism to reach the highest level of quality and proficiency. BIPA’s delegation, which included BIPA’s Advisor of Guidance and Training, Yusuf Al Bader, and BIPA’s Senior Director of Basic Development and Creative Learning, Mohammed Al-Sabba’a, reviewed the draft of GCC unified guidance standards of certified trainers, which will be submitted at the public administration institutes director-generals meeting to be held in May.
