Barbadians involved in the telecommunications sector now have an opportunity to receive training in that area.
They can apply for the short-term professional development course – Masterclass in European Union (EU) Telecommunications Regulation – which will be taught in Belgium, from October 27 to 29.
Those interested in attending the training should be seasoned regulatory experts who have become specialised in a specific regulatory area, but who wish to refresh their understanding of the broader range of regulatory issues.
They may also be individuals who have recently moved into a regulatory position and wish to acquire a rapid grasp of the key debates.??Further information on scholarship benefits and responsibilities, as well as requirements for submission of applications, may be found at http://www.oas.org/en/scholarships/professionaldev.asp.
Applications must be submitted to the Economic Affairs Division by Friday, August 28, 2015. Interested persons may also call Richelle Gaskin at 310-1323, for additional information on the course.
Participants will, among other things, get an insight into the latest developments in the fields of broadband deployment and access regulation, an understanding of key institutional mechanisms, notably the EU legislative process as it relates to the telecoms sector; and an analysis of the benefits and difficulties of implementing a harmonised approach to regulatory issues in the sector.
