|Information and Communication Technology (ICT) training works hand in hand with other national projects such as IT Clubs, PC for Every Home, Broadband, and Laptop for Every Professional Initiatives. The national plan is to provide the technological infrastructure, make available all the resources, and develop the skills and knowledge, at an affordable fee and flexible enough to meet needs of the future.
ICT training is intended to boost the skills and knowledge of university graduates who despite their specialized education have found themselves without the necessary ICT knowledge needed for the marketplace. It is the conviction of MCIT that the rate of employment in this country will increase dramatically through the acquisition of ICT knowledge and skills. The idea is not in transforming the youth into computer programmers, but in enhancing the young with the various backgrounds and teaching them how to make technology serve their needs and provide solutions.
The Government of Egypt has devised programs in cooperation with numerous training institutes to fully meet the needs of the society. The ICT Training project is comprised of two main programs: Basic Training Program and the Specialized Training Program.
