The Arab Knowledge and Management Society (AKMS) has recently signed a cooperation agreement with the Center for Quality Consultancy and Engineering in Libya to implement the Arab Certified Quality Manager Program in Libya and Jordan. The first session of the program is expected to be held in Jordan during the first quarter of this year. Launched by AKMS, the Arab Certified Quality Manager Program aims to provide participants with the knowledge necessary to carry out effective quality practices in the field of quality and to implement strategies to solve them, as well as developing and promoting research and applications of quality principles and practices.
The Program consists of (88) accredited training hours covering seven specialized subjects in several areas, most important of which are the basics of total quality management tools, basic concepts of leadership and personnel management, strategic planning in quality management, capacity building, customer focus for excellence in business and supply chain management, noting that the Program is available in both Arabic and English.
It is worth mentioning that the "Arab Certified Quality Manager" Program provides a professional certificate accredited by the British Quality Institute "Chartered Quality Institute (CQI)" which aims at making quality the core target of each institution. CQI is a statutory body for professional quality management, founded in 1919. The certificate is also accredited by the "Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM)" which aims at developing the capabilities of managers and leaders in all parts of the world through the provision of specialized qualifications and diversified educational resources. The Arab Knowledge and Management Society Program was recently held in Muscat in cooperation with the Arab Omani Institute for Administrative Training and in Riyadh, in cooperation with Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry. It was also held for a number of bodies in each of Jordan and the UAE. The Program is arranged to take place in several Arab cities to activate its role and activities throughout the Arab world in line with the strategies of AKMS to render the highest levels of knowledge and to develop the Arab administrative capabilities.
