“We know that Cisco technical skills are some of the most sought after skills in the ICT industry.”
The skills development will cover training in A+, N+ and 3G connectivity for a period of six months. The project will train and develop 15 ICT entrepreneurs in each of the nine Vodacom ICT resource centre situated in all the provinces. The total number of trainees will be 135.
