“It is interesting to note that this laudable collaboration is first of its kind in any Nigerian tertiary institutions.
“The project is designed in such a way that all students and interested staff members of AOPE will henceforth, be Cisco, Microsoft, Fortinet and Digital Marketing certified experts as trainings have commenced.
“This implies that all students, alongside their ND or HND certificate, will receive additional certifications at the end of their academic pursuits.
“One major importtant aspect of the various I.T trainings is that all courses are designed based on student’s course of study.
“It is expected that trainings in the aforementioned Information Technology courses will make AOPE graduates standout among their peers in the labour market and ultimately make them self- employed.
“Not only this, the partnership will also boost the internally generated revenue (IGR) of Adeseun Ogundoyin Polytechnic, Eruwa.
“The collaboration also comes with the provision of Campus-wide Internet connectivity such that students and staff will be able to browse anywhere within the campus.
“Through the company’s Access to Education and Skills Acquisition centre (ACESA CENTRE) domiciled within AOPE main campus, candidates who are denied admission into main stream and those with SSCE results can obtain ND, Cisco, Microsoft, Fortinet, Digital Marketing and National Business and Technical Examinations Board Modular Skills certificates within two academic sessions. Admission is ongoing for 2020/2021 academic session.
