Huawei ICT Academy Uganda launched a new series of free online courses open to anyone interested in building an ICT career with internationally recognized certifications. The courses can be accessed via Huawei’s e-learning portal with no minimum education requirements for successful enrolment.
Like the existing Huawei ICT Academy curriculum that has been in existence for over 3 years in Uganda at public universities like Makerere University, MUBS, Gulu, Muni, Kyambogo and many others. The new courses are free to all registered learners and come with a free certificate at the end of the course.
According to Huawei Uganda, the new courses can be accessed online and will be instructor-led in order to simulate the best in-classroom conditions for all students no matter their education level. Upon completion of any course, students will be able to certify for an internationally recognized certificate under the Huawei Certified ICT Associate (HCIA) suite.
Among the courses that will be led by instructors from Uganda’s top universities include Cloud Computing, ICT Security, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN), 5G, Cloud services, Data Communications, Big Data, and Data Center Facility Management.
However, the courses require initial registration for all students to provide a paced environment and access to course schedules.
During a course’s duration, students will have access to e-learning materials and live simulators like virtual routers, switches, network masts, and servers. Upon completion of a course, students will be able to certify under the HCIA certification system for internationally recognized certificates like those offered by Amazon, Cisco, Juniper, Microsoft, Google, and the Linux Professional Institute.
With no education background limitations, any student can apply for enrollment into any of the listed free Huawei courses, and upon approval, no physical meetings with instructors will be required for all students, but instead, a stable internet connection will be necessary to attend all virtual classes.
