No fewer than 100 staff of the Federal College of Education (FCE), Pankshin, Plateau, benefited from an advanced computer digital skills standard training.
The Provost of the College, Dr Amos Cirfat, while declaring open the training held at the College premises on Thursday, said the programme was organised under the sponsorship of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND).
Cirfat also said that the training was organised in collaboration with a computer firm, International Certification of Digital Literacy (ICDL), handled by Hopewell Solutions Services Ltd.
“The training is particularly designed to improve knowledge on new digital computer skills which is a global requirement to impact knowledge, ease logistics for economic growth and individual empowerment, especially in this era of Information Communication Technology (ICT).
“I am grateful to TETFUND for the sponsorship which will greatly update and increase staff capacity building on ICT and improve learning in the institution,’’ he said.
He appealed to the participants to show commitment and interest in the programme “which is now a new way of life of interaction and solving problems with ease.”
Also speaking, Mr Levi Walide, the College Director of ICT, commended TETFUND for its gesture to the institution and urged the participants to take the training seriously in view of its numerous benefits.
“It is our believe that after undergoing this training, you will put to use the skills acquired toward the transformation of this College, technology wise,’’ Walide said.
The programme Director of the training, Mr Hughes Dimka, urged the participants to engage themselves freely and ask questions in areas of doubt in order not to miss any relevant point.
