Rabdan Academy aims to be a future class multi-disciplinary learning environment of choice for the continuing development of safety, security, defense, and emergency preparedness and crisis management professionals. The Academy is an independent and autonomous institution reporting directly to the Executive Council of the Abu Dhabi Emirate. Its ambition is to contribute to the development of a world-class crisis response capability consistent with the Abu Dhabi 2030 Plan and Economic Vision. The Academy will lead the approach of the UAE nation in combining academic and vocational education. It is the first in the UAE to provide learning in a dual sector structure that recognizes prior learning and experience, sharing accumulated credits from course to course and job to job. This removes duplication of effort and provides students with clear career pathways. The Academy is therefore a forward looking educational organization, capable of going beyond traditional learning models and methodologies to address the educational needs of our students, today. Its education and training curriculum and delivery methodology is applications-based and relevant to both students’ needs, as the learner, and the professions students will be trained for.

Our educational programs are fully accredited by the Commission for Academic Accreditation in the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. Accreditation is important for our students as course credits are recognized within the UAE and internationally, and also transferable between programs and institutions. This gives our students flexibility to adjust their learning plans to match their changing needs and professional operational requirements.The Academy staff and the resources are dedicated to the success of our students.
