PTT – Providers of Telecommunications Training, the UK’s leading provider of e-learning for the telecoms industry – is delighted to announce a partnership with the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO). The CTO is an international development partnership which aims to bridge the digital divide by delivering unique knowledge sharing programmes.
PTT will provide its extensive range of e-learning courses to the CTO for use in its “ILearn@CTO” learning portal. The courses will be available through the CTO for those in the Commonwealth and beyond.
All courses will be completed on a computer – either using the Internet or a CDROM. This will allow people in remote locations and developing countries to improve their knowledge and skills in a cost-effective, manageable way.
Trainees will have 12 months access to their course, allowing them to complete it at their own pace, anytime, anywhere.
PTT’s Managing Director, Bob Nott says “This is a fantastic partnership. The work of the CTO is crucial to developing telecoms skills in the Commonwealth. We are delighted to have been chosen as their supplier – enhancing our reputation as a leading e-learning provider to the telecoms industry. E-learning is vital to the developing world because classroom-based training can be too expensive and difficult for those working remotely to attend. E-learning also ensures that all employees receive the same content.”
The “ILearn@CTO” learning portal will officially launch on the CTO website from 20th October 2008.
