Huawei partners with Kenyan universities to launch tech training

Huawei Kenya has launched a 10-day training programme for 12 local universities to implement the Huawei Authorized Information and Network Academy Train the Teacher Training (HAINA TTT). This is a new programme aimed at imparting cutting-edge technical skills to professors to support them to train their students adequately.

Speaking at the launch of the training, Huawei’s Senior Director of Public Affairs, Adam Lane emphasized the dire need to prepare students for the job market by building their ICT skills through proper training.

“Skills transfer and partnerships are a key strategy for the State Department for University Education, and this example shows how Universities are partnering with leading multinationals to build the skills and employability of students,” said Mr. Lane.

The programme was first launched in 2017 under the name Huawei Authorized Information and Network Academy (HAINA). It is an authorized and certified non-profit programme that provides the latest technical training and certifications to students using the Huawei Authorized training curriculum and tools. The certifications offered are curated based on the leading Information and Communications Technology (ICT) technologies and global ICT practices.
Since 2017, Huawei has successfully partnered with Technical University of Kenya to provide cutting-edge technical skills for professors and support them to train their students through HAINA. Now in 2018, Huawei is drastically expanding this program to reach more universities, their professors, and their students.

The 10-day training will host 22 partners and is focused on coaching university lecturers on Huawei Certified Network Associate – Routing and Switching (HCNA-R&S). HAINA TTT participant universities include Kenyatta University, Riara University, Daystar University, Jomo Kenyatta University, University of Nairobi, Multimedia University of Kenya, East Africa Institute of Certified Studies, Dedan Kimathi University of Technology, Zetech University, South Eastern Kenya University, AFRALTI and the Slumcode center. Globally, Huawei has cooperated with more than 350 universities and educates more than 12,500 students every year.
