5G Training for Huawei ICT Academy Instructors


As Africa catches up with the rest of the world in all matters ICT, emerging and innovative technology it is important to see to it that the Kenyan youth, ICT professionals, and those in careers that may or may not be ICTcentric are equally skilled to ensure that they compete on a level playing field with the rest. In addition we need to establish that the skill gap is addressed and guarantee the lack of shortage. The 4th industrial revolution is upon us and it is visible in the digitization of services, roles and functions across various industries.

Huawei has always been committed to ensuring that the issue pertaining to the lack of skills is addressed through creating various training programs in partnership with universities and government institutions .The Huawei ICT Academy has particularly been on the forefront signing MoUs with over 30 universities locally to equip students with critical skills necessary for the 4IR. The academies at the Universities provide courses on Routing and Switching, security, cloud among others to its students.

Cost has been a predominant factor derailing the access of key ICT skills, to address this Huawei offers courses that are free or at subsidized cost ensuring inclusivity among all in terms of accessing resources. With this regard the ICT academy has organized an online training on HCIA-5G V1.0 for Huawei ICT Academy Instructors. The 2 hour, 4 day live webinar course will cover content on 5G basics, development, and evolution, 5G network capabilities and key technologies, 5G service applications and 5G industry solution.
