HE Dr. Husam Zaman, ETEC
President, granted attendance certificates to those who attended the
training courses organized by ETEC at its headquarters in Riyadh.
In the meeting, which was held last Monday evening the 3rd
of February, Dr. Zaman granted certificates to 61 trainees from among
military personnel and staff who had completed the training programs and
workshops organized by ETEC.
The training programs
included 30 hours of intensive workshops and training sessions with an average
of 5 hours of training per day. These sessions touched upon three main aspects
in quality assurance. The first workshop was titled “Establishing an Internal
Quality Assurance System”, while the second was titled “Quality Assurance
Standards and Institutional Accreditation in Military Institutions and their
Requirements”, and the third workshop was titled “Quality Assurance Standards
and Program Accreditation in Military Programs and their Requirements”.
These workshops are among
a series of training programs and courses which were attended by 369 members of
the military personnel and staff at different military and security entities. These
training programs are considered to be foundation courses before further
training courses are held. Those who complete the training programs are
expected to be aware of the key concepts and main requirements of quality
systems, in addition to relevant terminology and definitions. They also should
be capable of distinguishing between quality in the domains of education and
training and quality in other fields. Further, they should adopt the culture of
quality and realize its significance and impact, which makes them capable of
spreading such awareness in a manner that positively contributes to the
educational and training process and its continuous development.
The training courses
aim to raise awareness of the importance of institutional and program
accreditation, as well as the goals, procedures, and requirements of each in
military education in training. They also serve to qualify trainees for another
series of training programs and workshops that address more in-depth and specialized
concepts, in addition to developing the skills of participants in many
important practical areas so that trainees attain an appropriate level of
competence that qualifies them to execute and oversee all the aspects of
quality and institutional and program accreditation at military institutions.
ETEC will soon start
accepting institutional and program accreditation applications from military
institutions, which will help improve the quality of military education and
training and contribute to the achievement of Saudi Vision 2030 and the
