The Bahrain Institute of Public Administration (BIPA) announced a plan to use online courses through E-LMS that may save governmental organizations more than $2.6 million a year.
During the month of April, BIPA-provided online training courses saved more than $212,000, with 500 civil servants completing free-of-charge classes. BIPA believes this will encourage further utilization of online training resources in developing employees.
The online courses fall in line with BIPA’s recently inaugurated strategy that aims to promote government performance in the areas of policy, strategy, resource management, change and development of government services. BIPA’s strategy involves utilizing online training, research mechanisms, consultations, assessment and guidance and strategic communications.
The training courses focus on broad skills civil servants need in their day-to-day roles such as leadership basics, customer service, dispute resolution, development of administration skills, financial manual and communication strategies, in addition to a set of learning clips and games made to meet government business requirements in Bahrain.
