University of Curaçao is opening a Cisco Networking Academy
In order to meet a demand for well trained IT-professionals, the University of Curaçao (UoC) is opening a Cisco Networking Academy. The Cisco Networking Academy, hosted at UoC, is planned to be launched in January 2016.
The academy is a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, founded by Cisco Corporation. It is an IT skills and career building program that connects students, educators and professionals. The academy does not only provide trained employees to the telecommunication industry; it also aims to meet a high demand for IT support in the tourism, financial, trade, and medical industries among others.
The collaboration between Cisco Corporation and UoC is based on a shared mission to promote innovation and to make a contribution to the technological development of our society.
The Cisco Networking Academy program in Curaçao is aimed at UoC students, and is also available for third parties with a degree on at least MBO level. All teachers are trained and certified as a Cisco Networking Academy Instructor.
UoC has been approved to not only host the Cisco Networking Academy, but also to integrate the course material in its university curriculums.
