The Training was graced by the ICDL Africa Country Manager, Aisha Farooq who welcomed the participants and shared with them importance attached to the programme. She advised them to give their best during the course of the program and to value the opportunity to be certified as ICDL trainers.
The training was delivered by the ICDL Africa Programme Manager, Peter Maina who equipped the trainers with skills on the process to delivering effective training. During the training, emphasis was pointed on class planning and evaluation of trainees needed in relation to ICDL modules, assessment of difficulty areas to pay attention to in training as well as the importance of using the Diagnostics Test Tool to determine topics that require more time and concentration.
Most importantly, Peter Maina stated the need for quality to be maintained by the trainers and their ATC’s as it is the bedrock of the ICDL Standard.
