MEED Networks is a network infrastructure and technology servicing company, based in Nigeria, with a strong focus on using IT to improve the operational efficiency of their clients. They offer the CONA (Certified Optical Network Associate) course in Nigeria and eastern Africa.
Ahmed Atere, MEED Networks COO, attended a special train the trainer programme in the UK to be licensed as a trainer to deliver the course. After the programme he said “The quality of the training materials and the trainer support package from OTT is fantastic, the design project and the use of WhizzieKit (OTT’s unique Virtual Optical Networking System) really helps trainees to put everything into practice.”
The local availability of this training comes at an important time for Nigeria as the government invests in rolling out fibre infrastructure throughout the country. The Certified Optical Network Associate programme will help to ensure that the government money is well spent through providing key personnel with a good understanding of fibre infrastructure and the optical networking systems that will be used on the project.
