CENGN Academy – Offering Free Training for Students

Thank you for your interest in our summer courses! Please note that our summer student courses applications are closed. Applications will be reviewed on June 28th and our instructors will get back to you during that week.

As COVID-19 continues, students have taken a direct hit to their educations and ability to find work.

This summer, CENGN is offering a choice of 3 different courses (valued at $2600) for 30 students in ICT-related programs to take free of charge. Whether in university or college, these 30 students will be given free access to an ICT-related CENGN Academy course. After completing their course, students will be able to try the badge exam; those that pass can post their badges on LinkedIn, indicating that they’re qualified and worker-ready.

Seats are limited to only 30 students in total so choose your course and sign up below!
