CERT - Tata Interactive Systems

E-learning, the imparting of education and training over the Internet has created new avenues in the UAE for the industrial and education sectors, redefining training methodologies and overcoming geographical barriers. The Centre of Excellence for Applied Research and Training (CERT), the commercial arm of the Higher Colleges of Technology and Tata Interactive Systems (TIS), a global leader in e-learning, seek to bring the benefits of the e-learning wave to the region, elevating its educational standards to meet global benchmarks.

In this joint effort, TIS brings in the e-Learning expertise and CERT the understanding of regional, innovative and learning needs of UAE and the Gulf region. CERT-TIS is aimed at creating sophisticated state-of-the-art eLearning content and software solutions for corporations, universities, schools, colleges, government and defence organisations in the region.

CERT-TIS aims to play the role of an e-learning consultant in the region, thereby accelerating the transfer of knowledge and advanced technology to the region. We focus on promoting independent learning that addresses all stages of the lifelong learning cycle. Our aim is to offer cost-effective access to world-class training, cutting across geographical barriers, and reaching out to all segments of society.

CERT-TIS aims to augment the traditional Instructor-led Training (ILT) or class-room based teaching effort in the region with its e-learning programmes.

CERT-TIS will also be involved in joint research in the area of learning needs and learning solutions for all stages of the life-long learning cycle and provide academic solutions for all segments of the regional market. Further, CERT and TIS have agreed to explore additional avenues to enhance and further their mutual aims in e-Learning.
