CoCIS bags CCNP regional Award

The College of Computing and Information Sciences has won the overall Academy Curriculum Excellence (CCNP East Africa) award during the recently concluded Cisco Academy Conference, held in Dar-es-salaam, Tanzania.

According to Drake Mirembe, the Ag, head of the Center for Innovations and Professional Skills Development (CiPSD) the award was in recognition of the College€„¢s continued commitment to excellence in delivery of the Cisco training programmes in the region. This follows an evaluation conducted by Cisco to gauge the quality of services offered by the different academies focusing on the following parameter - the number of professional development events conducted by an academy, the number of development programmes conducted for the staff, the equipment available, the pass rate of an academy€„¢s students, the student feedback and an academy€„¢s outreach programmes.

€œIn addition, the College received two other recognitions - the Academy Learning Opportunity and CCNA Discovery Curriculum Excellence awards,€ Drake added. The CiPSD conducts the different Cisco courses offered at the College.

The College continued efforts towards improving the quality of instruction in the Ugandan Cisco Academies, has encouraged Cisco to approve a grant to the College to support instructor retooling and quality assurance for both Uganda and Rwanda.

Uganda, and particularly the College of Computing and Information Sciences hosts one of the two regional Academy Support Centres in East Africa. The other is located in Kenya and together, the two centres offer support to 140 Cisco academies within the East African region including other countries like Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Seychelles.
