In partnership with the Central Bank, ICDL Africa conducted a Pilot Assessment in Digital Skills for 103 staff from across all departments in the bank spread out in all 5 provinces of the Country in 2017.

A decision was taken to have the staff trained in ICDL Programme and the HR department at BNR started working on a training plan for this to be implemented.
Having finalized the training of 15 NBR staff in ICDL programmes, the selected staff, who were trained in 16 ICDL Modules for a period of 4 months, were taken through the train the trainer program for three days from 22nd to 24th November 2021.
