Technological Training Programme for Unattached Youth Begins March 5

Approximately 1,000 unattached youth are set to begin training on Monday (March 5) under the Technology Advancement Programme (TAP).

The programme, which will equip the participants with skills in data collection and analysis, involves partnership between the Universal Service Fund (USF) under the Ministry of Science, Energy and Technology and the Caribbean Maritime University (CMU).

Associate Vice President for the Faculty of Advanced Skills and Professional Development at CMU, Cornell Brown, said that the training will provide the youths with an opportunity “to gain a marketable skill”.

Dr. Brown, who was addressing a JIS Think Tank of Tuesday (February 28), said that “at the end of the training, participants will receive a recognised CMU competency certificate, which will indicate that they have expertise in data collection”.

Trainees will be employed by the USF for at least one year.
