Under the auspices of MoPT, long-time computer technology instructors, Arti and Jaiaram Hirai, made sure that their students were ready for the first grueling literacy test in April, even giving extra lessons on weekdays and holidays.

More than 15 scored above 70%, and the others came in over 65%. They received their certificates on Saturday 20 May in a simple ceremony, and in a few weeks time, will begin the intermediate level classes that will introduce them to web development, coding and programming.

Arti and Jaiaram have been running the A+ Computer Training Center at Vreed-en-Hoop, WCD for years and this time MoPT took the opportunity to utilize their skills and facilities to offer free classes for youths in the vicinity. Both husband and wife come from a family of highly qualified Computer Technologists.

The upcoming intermediate level classes will run through the August holidays, and will also be free of charge for the students.

Ministry of Public Telecommunications congratulates the 20 students and wishes them all Good Luck for the next level training.
