This means that the Faculty of Computing and Informatics can offer Oracle training and certification examinations to full-time and part-time students. Students are able to learn relevant international skills and possess an internationally recognized Oracle certification that complements their formal degree programmes.
Hitherto there were no local partners who were able to offer such training and certification. NUST offers both instructor-led or online courses in Oracle.
The Dean of the Faculty of Computing and Informatics, Dr Anicia Peters, said that becoming an authorised Oracle WDP partner has been like a dream come true because certified Oracle persons are direly needed in the country.
The programme aims to address the global skills shortage in the technology industry. Globally, around 420 000 companies use Oracle products. In Namibia there are several companies and government departments that use Oracle products.
