AIC delivers several courses in partnership with its partners, such as Cisco. STEM subjects have become a priority in education as public and private sector jobs in science, technology, engineering, and math continue to rise, and the existing gender and ethnic disparities in the STEM fields underscore the need for outreach programs to help engage young women and under-served minorities in such areas. Our goals for 2017 requires our programs to increase the numbers of underrepresented students who seek out and develop technology skill sets that might not be reached in traditional educational settings.
AIC is implementing its core training offering in partnership with Cisco, who is by far, the largest networking company in the world. With the support of Cisco we are sponsoring Sub Saharan Africa universities and non-profit organisations to become local Cisco Academies. Our go to market strategy is to first offer free online Cisco IoT courses as an introduction to the Cisco Academy learning platform, the free courses included are NDG Linux, Introduction to Cyber Security, Mobility fundamentals, Entrepreneurship, IoE. These courses are made possible through the support of AIC Technologies and will be taught by Chuck Lay, our experienced Cisco approved instructor.
