NITDA Offers Free Virtual ICT Learning For Civil Servants And Others

One key thing that has been happening since the index case in Nigeria and consequent lockdown has been the wide accessibility to courses and learnings especially for digital skills which is the future of work. Previously, I have share about Pluralsight’s #FREEAPRIL where all courses were for free for the month of April. I have also shared courses on Entrepreneurship by NECA (Nigerian Employers Consultative Association). Interestingly, this free access to learning programs has been provided both by public organizations and private organizations.
