The Critical National Infrastructure Authority (CNIA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Vocational Education Development Centre (VEDC) to develop training opportunities for UAE personnel.

The MoU was signed during the 9th International Defence Exhibition (IDEX 2009) at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

VEDC will provide personnel to be trained by CNIA before entering CNIA's workforce. VEDC will also work with CNIA to develop new processes, procedures and services in the field of personnel development and education.

CNIA's Chairman, Staff Brigadier Pilot Ahmed Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, said, "This MoU and close cooperation with VDEC bring CNIA closer to achieving its goal of being a global leader in infrastructure protection. CNIA is dedicated not just to making Abu Dhabi and the UAE safer but also in building superior training programs in national security." Hussein Al Hammadi, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Institute of Applied Technology, expressed his gratitude to Sheikh Ahmed for the confidence CNIA has in VDEC and for the opportunity to work towards Abu Dhabi's national security.

He added; "VDEC is ready to assist CNIA to fulfil its objectives by providing research and development as well as vocational training and technical education." VEDC is one of six campuses that comprise the Institute of Applied Technology (IAT), which was established by Royal Decree, in 2005 by H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. VEDC provides an integrated curriculum of academic and vocational studies that leads to qualifications that support both continuing studies and the needs of the workplace. Unlike the other five 'mainstream' campuses of IAT, VEDC has a unique focus on developing young Emirati males who have previously disengaged from formal learning.
