JEDDAH: Chinese technology giant Huawei has teamed up with the Technical and Vocational Training Cooperation (TVTC) to launch an initiative that will bring the latest tech training to 20,000 Saudi students.
The Tech Track initiative will strengthen information and communications technology skills among Saudi youth, developing employment opportunities and supporting the Kingdom’s growing digital economy. It is part of the Saudi Talent Enabling Program developed by Huawei and is also aligned with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 program.
Students from all Saudi universities and colleges can join the Tech Track training and certification program for free. Participants will receive three days of online training that will cover six technical fields — artificial intelligence, big data, Internet of Things, security, routing and switching, and WLAN wireless computer network.
Eric Yang, CEO of Huawei Tech. Investment Saudi Arabia, said in a statement: “Through our collaboration with TVTC, we aim to bridge the gaps between the demand of the future digital workforce and the supply of local talents. The Tech Track initiative will enable us to contribute to the sustainable development of Saudi Arabia’s wider ICT industry, as well as the Kingdom’s larger transformation goals of Vision 2030.”
The initiative will run until October, and students can attend up to 10 online training sessions. Students can apply at https://live.bluamoeba.com/huaweiKSA/techtrack
