Ras Al Khaimah Unveils Cutting-Edge Certified AI Practitioner Program

In alignment with Ras Al Khaimah Government’s dedication to nurturing UAE talent in the global digital sector and supporting education and growth, the Department of Human Resources (DHR) and RAK Investment and Development Office (IDO) have forged a partnership to introduce the Certified Artificial Intelligence Practitioner (CAIP) Program.

In collaboration with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Academy, this CAIP initiative aims to enrich and cultivate the skills of Emirati job seekers and graduates by offering career development programs in Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, and data analytics. This effort seeks to align with the rapid evolution of digital technologies and increased automation characteristic of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). Participants will have the opportunity to earn certification from Stanford University, a top-ranking institution globally, and Cert Nexus, a reputable U.S.-based entity specializing in certificates for emerging technologies.

The agreement was formally sealed by Their Excellencies Dr. Mohamed Abdullatif Khalifa, Director General of the DHR, and Mohammed Sultan Al Qadi, Managing Director and Board Member of RAK IDO.

Dr. Mohamed Abdullatif Khalifa emphasized, “This strategic collaboration between the DHR and IDO in Ras Al Khaimah underscores our steadfast commitment to elevating national skills and setting higher benchmarks for education and training within the digital industry. Our focus remains on providing developmental pathways that equip graduates and job seekers to excel in the realm of digital technologies.”

Mohammed Sultan Al Qadi echoed this sentiment, stating, “This groundbreaking initiative is geared towards preparing and empowering national talent in the artificial intelligence domain, enabling them to excel at an international level in leadership, innovation, and competitiveness. Teaming up with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Academy, we are dedicated to offering specialized training initiatives that empower participants to attain international academic qualifications, enabling them to shine on the global platform and best represent Ras Al Khaimah and the UAE.”

The CAIP Program in Ras Al Khaimah will span eight months, providing participants with the opportunity to acquire a CAIP certification from Cert Nexus and an online certificate in machine learning from Stanford University. Throughout the program, participants will have the chance to apply these new skills and engage in internships, alongside support for job placements upon program completion.

This partnership reflects Ras Al Khaimah Government’s commitment to empowering Emirati youth by enhancing their professional skills and global career prospects, aligning with the Emirate’s vision for a sustainable and prosperous future for all.
