The Ministry of Finance (MoF) held a remote training session for users of the federal financial system – Oracle – in government entities. The session aimed to train the participants on the Payment System, as part of the ministry’s keenness to provide quick and innovative solutions to continue working during the crisis, and to enhance the efficiency and performance of workers across ministries and federal entities when it comes to the use of financial systems.

The training session, which was attended by more than 20 employees from different federal entities, encompassed a detailed explanation, as well as a practical demonstration for the entire payments process. The trainees were asked to implement these experiments within the training environment of the federal financial system. Then, the trainees’ questions were answered by the trainers. At the end of the session, the trainees were given a test in their field of specialisation, and they obtained MoF-approved e-certificates of participation.
