Chinese technology firm Huawei has partnered with the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Authority of Kenya to provide training to 377 students under the Presidential Digital Talent Program (PDTP) that seeks to develop and expand the ICT talent pool in the country.


Fiona Pan, Huawei Kenya's Deputy CEO for Public Affairs said the five-week virtual training which started on Monday will provide digital training courses on networking, cloud and artificial intelligence.


The Internet of Things and basic digital literacy under the Huawei Digitruck program are included.


"Huawei will continue to support local ICT talent development initiatives. Investing in Kenya's digital skills training is not only part of our corporate social responsibility but is also our duty as an organization to work together with the government and other stakeholders to address the digital skills gap," Pan said in a statement issued in Nairobi.


Under the programme, 246 trainees will take the networking course while 131 students will take the cloud and artificial intelligence courses.


Pan said the training will be conducted by certified Huawei trainers, with the students having access to training resources, including Massive Open Online Courses and e-Labs.
