Huawei Uganda has today launched a new series of free online courses open to anyone interested in building an ICT career with internationally recognized certifications. The new courses can be accessed via Huawei’s e-learning portal with no minimum education requirements for successful enrollment.

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, Mbarara, MUBS, Gulu, Muni, Busitema, 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.

In a bid to favour learner schedules, all courses have morning and evening sessions from which students can choose from. Additionally, all sessions are instructor-led with every class involving live interactive sessions between students and lecturers.

However, in order to enroll in any given course, a student must sign up through the respective course’s registration link for fast approval, enrollment, and gain instant access to the course program as uploaded by the respective instructors.

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.

With no education background limitations, any Ugandan citizen can apply for enrollment into any of the listed free Huawei courses, and upon approval, no physical meetings with instructors will be required for all students, but instead, a stable internet connection will be necessary to attend all virtual classes from 3rd May – 24th June 2021.
