The Certificate in Computer Applications is a practical course whose main aim is to provide opportunity for interested candidates to develop Information and Communications Technology (ICT) skills that are becoming essential in every sector of our economy.

 

It also aims at meeting the challenge of preparing students as they make the transition from secondary school to university and college life. The skills required to succeed in university/college are different from those required in secondary schools and very many students find it difficult to make quick adjustments especially in the instructional methods.

 

The programme will be of special interest to candidates who have not had any contact at all with the business world and who need to develop skills that will enable them to attain their full potential in university/college or work environment.

 

Business management courses will also be provided to participants to enhance their understanding of the work environment and the expectation of employers and IT recruiters.
