The Nigerian Army Resource Centre (NARC) recently inaugurated the first set of students for the IC3 Digital Literacy Certification Course 1, held at the NARC Training Centre in Abuja.
In his welcome address, the Director, Information Communication and Technology, Brigadier General Ferdinand Eze, expressed satisfaction over the partnership with The Training Centre (TTC) Abuja, and hoped that the aim of the programme would have been achieved at the end of the course.
In his inaugural speech, the Director General, Nigerian Army Resource Centre, Major General Johnny Hamakim informed participants that the Nigerian Army Resource Centre initiated a partnership with a Certiport Accredited Training Centre (TTC) in Abuja. He said that the aim of the partnership with TTC is to develop programmes to fill observed information technology skills gaps for personnel of the Armed Forces, their wards and the Nigerian society in general.

The IC3 Digital Literacy Certification is a global standard programme designed to equip candidates with fundamental knowledge needed to succeed in every environment that requires the use of computer and the Internet.
General Hamakim then urged the participants to make good use of the opportunity to improve themselves. He also commended the efforts of the Director, Information Communication Technology and his staff at getting this arrangement through, despite many challenges.
It is however imperative to note, that the NARC is a Think-Think established to proffer research-based solutions to defence and security problems facing the Nigerian Army and the nation at large. Therefore, the courses are open to members of the Armed Forces, students (Primary-Tertiary levels), NYSC members and the general public who desire to increase their proficiency in IT skills.
