Blue Ocean Academy announced its new courses for the upcoming session. These range from essentials like Six Sigma (Quality) Green Belt and Black Belt to advanced Contract Management, Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Human Resource Management and Aviation Management among others.
Headquartered in the UAE, Blue Ocean Academy is a highly successful training organization offering trainings to both individuals and companies in the UAE, UK and India. One of the biggest reasons behind the company’s significant growth has been its strategy to offer international courses for all levels of workers unlike other training companies that tend to focus more on managerial development programs.
Mr S. Menon, Executive Director – Academics, Blue Ocean, said, “Companies can reap tremendous benefits by offering training to their employees, most directly by improving their workers’ job-related skills and productivity. But worldwide, these opportunities are increasingly offered to those who already have an advantage. We saw there were an enormous number of people eager to develop their professional skills in order to grow in their careers and hence developed courses that would help them realize their dreams. The response has been absolutely phenomenal.”
According to the World Bank the total Work Force in the UAE is about 3 million people (agriculture – 5%, industry – 60%, services – 35%, female participation 41.8%) which makes the training industry a lucrative business.
An individual’s competitive advantage in the current economic scenario depends on his skills, talent, educational attainment and experience. “People often fail to capitalize on opportunities because they do not have the necessary skills or qualification. At Blue Ocean we help professionals chart their career paths and develop their skills that enable them to move up in the ranks,” said Mr Menon.
It has been proven by research that creating a culture of continuous learning and feedback is essential to an organization’s success. Employees of any company or sector face countless challenges on a daily basis that require immediate solution and demand a wide range of skills. However, all too often, trainings are considered off-the-shelf programs that fail to take into account the complexities of an organization or prevailing market conditions. Blue Ocean’s courses are carefully crafted around the needs of a specific company or sector. Mr Menon said, “We offer a broad range of career development programs for individuals as well as tailor-made solutions for companies that address the most critical challenges. These are designed to build, broaden and refresh your skills.”
Mr Menon stressed, “Companies need to understand that it is imperative to nurture the human capital for long-term success. You need to continually reinvent yourself to stay ahead of the pack. In today’s fiercely competitive world, even the best have to get better.”
