Slide1Final marks for the ambitious students10 February 2014 - The first group of youth participating in the IT Essentials course at the Worcester centre graduated with high marks. After having completed the course in half the time, the graduates are now certified Level 1 IT technicians. 

The IT Essentials course offers the foundations to become an IT professional and covers both hardware and software. Students have also done hands-on skills training, so that they walk away from the course not only with the theoretical knowledge needed, but also with the practical skills to be a successful technician.

 

High marks in a short time

Ordinarily the course would run for a year but the students put in so much time and effort that they managed to cover all material in six months. All 18 students that signed up to the NetAcad website and enrolled for the Cisso IT Essentials course have successfully completed it with great marks. The lowest score was close to 90% and Daniel Nel achieved an unbelievable 100% for the entire course. He has been very dedicated and diligent in his work and made the Worcester ICT Resource centre trainers very proud.

 

Moving on

Some of them intend to study further and increase their knowledge of IT. Others have started on other career paths with the confident knowledge they have the skill to become successful entrepreneurs.

The success of this first group has sparked a lot of interest in the region and the trainers are now busy training the second group of future IT professionals. This group consists of students fresh out of matric with maths and sciences as subject choices. One of them was so excited about attending the course that he's moved from Paarl to the Cape Winelands.
