Dubai – 19, May 2022: Customs training center at Dubai Customs launched “Training Doses” initiative, which aims to raise the efficiency of inspection in line with the best international practices. It will also help in consolidating controls and fight against all customs violations, including smuggling. The Training Doses targets 500 inspection officers, and has already benefited 40 inspectors in its initial stage.
The training doses initiative came in line with Dubai Customs' strategic plan, which focuses on developing human cadres, especially those working in inspection, and enrolling them in specialized training courses on the latest methods of smuggling.
