RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s Museums Commission has launched the first edition of a training program for volunteers to be held in Jeddah from Oct. 22-26.
The 25-hour training program will be carried out in four regions of the Kingdom — Riyadh, the Eastern Province, Asir, and Jouf — to help volunteers develop personal, communication, leadership and teamwork skills.
Volunteers will also learn how to handle emergencies and response mechanisms, design museum tours, and develop museum guidance skills.
Participants will receive a certificate of completion by the museums commission. They can register here.
The training program is part of the commission’s strategy to develop talent and create an experienced museum workforce.
