CISCO Academy Support Centre

In July 2002, CoCIS was approved as a Regional Cisco Networking Academy under a partnership with Cisco Systems Inc. The Academy has been recognized by Cisco Systems Inc. in the past as having the best Regional Cisco Networking Academy in the whole of Africa because of its outstanding student support and Academy support initiatives. As a Regional academy, CoCIS is mandated to oversee the Cisco programmes in the region and ensure that Local Academies operate in line with the CISCO Quality Assurance plan. To date, 15 academies have been enrolled with CoCIS as their Regional Academy, ten of which offer CCNA and five of them offering IT Essentials. The academies include; the 4 public universities in Uganda: Gulu University, Mbarara University of Science and Technology, Kyambogo University, Makerere University (Department of Women and Gender Studies & CoCIS), Multitech Business School, Kabale University, Gayaza High School, Islamic University in Mbale, Kampala International University, Monacco Labs, and Kampala University. Of the 15 Cisco local Academies in place, 4 secondary schools were specially nominated to carry out a pilot study and explore the possibility of incorporating one of the Cisco Academy courses (IT Essentials) in the secondary school Computer studies curriculum.

Cisco Systems has sponsored CoCIS staff to undertake training in South Africa the Cisco Academy Training Center of the Middle East and African region and sometimes instructors receive in-house training by the CISCO Technical Area Manager. This has greatly empowered them to be skilled and certified Instructors.

The Cisco Networking Academy Program is a comprehensive e-learning program that provides students with the Internet technology skills essential in a global economy. The Networking Academy delivers web-based content, online assessment, student performance tracking, hands-on labs, instructor training and support, and preparation for industry standard certifications.
