WHAT DO WE TRAIN ON?
Cisco IT Essentials

WHY CISCO IT ESSENTIALS?
Due to changing patterns in service delivery, technology is gradually replacing many human efforts as well as reduce the number of staff in the organization

Graduates trained in Bauchi State, Nigeria

, however there is a shortage of certified and qualified manpower in handling these technologies hence CISCO IT Essentials as a course is equipped to cover the fundamentals in PC computer technology, networking, preventive maintenance and repairs of computers, printer repairs and client management.

 

Training
The foundation has a mandate to identify, train, mentor and place 1000 High Potential but Disadvantaged Youth in Nigeria in digital jobs. We view this as an alternative to other

conventional forms of empowerment.

 

In partnership with schools and organizations in Nigeria, the Foundation delivers a comprehensive learning experience to help students develop ICT skills for entry-level career opportunities, continuing education, and globally recognized career certifications.
