Huawei ICT Academy of Uganda has launched a new series of free online courses open to anyone interested in building an ICT career with internationally recognized certifications.
Similar to 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 certificate of completion 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 in order to provide a paced environment and access to course schedules. Also, online classes will start on 3rd May 2021 and end on 24th June 2021 with early registration as a key to early enrollment to the available schedule for all HCIA courses.
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 similar to those offered by Amazon, Cisco, Juniper, Microsoft, Google, and the Linux Professional Institute.
