Within the scope of cooperation with MISAU and with the aim of facilitating the communication of ICT technicians in the health sector and other actors in this field at national, regional and international levels, Jembi / UEM-mOASIS provided financial support for the completion of the course of English language to be taught to employees of the Department of Information and Communication Technologies (DTIC) of the Ministry of Health. The course, which was on-site, was conducted by International English College (IEC), and lasted for 4 months. The course was completed by the 15 participants, all of whom successfully completed levels 1 and 2 of the English language, where the main objective was to train the technicians of DTIC for reading, comprehension, speaking and writing the language in basic proficiency thus allowing to reduce language barriers, facilitating interaction with international IT communities and access to English language documentation. The course took place during the pandemic phase in which the country is living, having observed all the established standards of COVID-19 prevention measures. The IEC Director welcomed the initiative and made the school available to Jembi/UEM-mOASIS for future initiatives.
