The customs training centre at Dubai Customs has launched the ‘Training Doses’ initiative, which aims to raise the efficiency of inspection in line with the best international practices.

The initiative will also help in consolidating controls and combat all customs violations, including smuggling. It targets 500 inspection officers, and has already benefited 40 inspectors in its initial stage.

The Training Doses initiative is in line with Dubai Customs’ strategic plan, which focuses on developing human cadres, especially those working in inspection, and enrolling them in specialised training courses on the latest methods of smuggling. Inspectors are trained using bags equipped with advanced technologies.

“The visits targeted inspection officers in the field. They were trained to efficiently identify hidden places used by smugglers to hide the contrabands,” Awadh Faraj, Senior Manager-Training at Dubai Customs, said.

“The initiative will continue throughout the year and will cover all customs centres. We have visited 11 customs centres so far and conducted practical training in the field,” he added.
