In light of the success of the training courses held during past year, NAMA Center has announced the launch of its training plan for 2017 through the introduction of four free courses for February.
The courses target young men and women aspiring to discover their potential, hone their skills and contribute effectively as the main pillar of the national human capital to the economic and social development in Qatar.
Mariam bint Abdullatif Al Mannai, director of the community services department and director in charge of running NAMA’s affairs, said: “The new programs and courses have been designed by the International Labour Organization (ILO), so as to ensure training content that meets the trainees’ requirements on all fronts, including planning for new projects, setting them in motion and developing and improving established ones.”
