Wednesday, 5th April 2017 marked the beginning a 3-day Train the Trainer program in Kenya which attracted ICDL trainers from various ATCs in Kenya. The training was carried out at Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD), an ICDL ATC in Nairobi. 17 participants attended the training that was facilitated by Peter Maina, Programme Implementation specialist at ICDL Africa with the Technical help of Technical Support Specialist, Ben Ochieng.
During his opening remarks, Peter Maina who was also the trainer of the 3-day training emphasized that ICDL trainers need to keep updating their knowledge and skills to ensure that they are always up to date with the current technology. He also talked about the newly launched ICT in Education module that will see existing trainers learn how to use ICT in delivery of content and also engage the leaners using various ICT resources.
