It will also offer a refresher course for 3,000 of Imdaad employees.

Marwan Othman, Imdaad’s Executive Director for Human Capital and Administration, said: “At Imdaad, the professional and personal development of our team members has always been a top priority. We are proud to initiate this project, which represents an important step in achieving our goal of ensuring that our workforce is fully BICSc-qualified.
