Royal Jet managers complete ICPM course
Abu Dhabi , August 8, 2010
Abu-Dhabi-based Royal Jet said 15 of its managers have completed a comprehensive programme of certified management and leadership development, accredited by the Institute of Certified Professional Managers (ICPM).
Royal Jet is a luxury executive flight services company chaired by Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan.
The ‘Certified Manager Programme’ is a three month course which develops and enhances general management skills and prepares individuals to take the management certification exams at the end, said a statement from Royal Jet.
Those who successfully complete the exams achieve Certified Manager (CMT) certification - a prestigious credential that recognises competency and professionalism of managers worldwide in all fields, it added.
The course consisted of a combination of classroom sessions and assignments - arranged and facilitated by Sun Learning Systems in the UAE - followed by the final examination.
At a special graduation ceremony held in Royal Jet’s Headquarters, Shane O’ Hare, along with Amna Al Mansouri - vice president of Human Resources and Corporate Support - and Nigel Fann, founder and instructor of Sun Learning Systems and a member of the ICPM Board, presented the certificates and appreciation letters to the newly certified managers.
Amna Al Mansouri said that throughout the three month period, the students had all shown a strong commitment to the course and their achievements were outstanding.
'Certification has long been a mark of competency and credibility,' she said, 'and by encouraging our people in this way, we hope it will add to their overall skills set and motivate them further in their careers.'
The ICPM is the world’s largest certifying organisation for the management profession, having certified over 10,000 managers worldwide for over 30 years.
Last year some 200 managers across the UAE completed their CM training, which covered a number of core competencies, including Management Fundamentals, Planning, Organising and Strategising, Leadership Principles, and Quality and Financial Management.-TradeArabia News Service
