Forty persons residing in Central Lethem, Region Nine, and surrounding communities recently graduated from the Office of the Prime Minister- Industry and Innovations Unit’s ‘Train the Trainer’ programme.
The programme aimed at offering professional and ICT skillsets in areas such as advanced Computing, Office Productivity, Web Development Troubleshooting and Internet Security, among others.
Participants were instructed in the areas of Introduction to computers and Fundamentals of ICT, Word Processing (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), Internet Computing, Cyber Security and Online Safety and Teaching Methodologies for ICT Education.
The one-week programme attracted persons from Tabatinga, St. Ignatius, Quarrie, Kumu, Moco Moco, Central Rupununi and Annai.
