Another ICT course has come to an end

01.11.21

Last month, we organised another Intermediate ICT course in collaboration with Byte Limited. Together with Albert, our regular trainer from Byte, we had the pleasure to host twelve students at Aurora Foundation’s office for a period of two weeks. While the intermediate course initially lasted three weeks, we now decided to divide the same number of training hours over two weeks, making it a more intensive training.

We are very happy with the results of the training, and the participants could be very proud of their results and achievements after a two-week deep-dive into Excel, Powerpoint and Google Drive. As previously, we were excited to award the student with the highest exam score and highest participation rate throughout the training with a laptop, donated by Islandsbanki.
