TTC Mobile launches The Missing Link

Leading manpower developers in the nation’s Information and Communication Technology (ICT), TTC Mobile Limited, has launched a new programme, tagged Nigerian Graduates and Telecom Opportunities: The Missing Link.

Managing Director and Chief Executive of the company, Mr. Akin Aregbesola who disclosed this at the weekend, said that the programme revolves around a series of seminar to be hosted by his firm for the sensitization of the populace, especially for graduates who are interested in seeking a place in the ICT sector.

“It is a series of seminar to sensitize persons interested in developing career in any of the specialized ICT positions,” he said.

Aregbesola also said that these seminars has been planned to hold at three key locations of the country, namely, Lagos, Port Harcourt and Abuja, in coming weeks.

According to him, the concept is borne out of the company’s new position as coordinator of the Training and Consulting committee of Association of Telecommunication Companies of Nigeria (ATCON).

This department headed by its TTC’s Deputy General Manager, Mr. Chrysantus Okon, he said is also a member of Information Technology Association of Nigeria (ITAN), while its training curriculum has been endorsed by yet another major telecom association, the Nigeria Internet Group (NIG).

Aregbesola said, based in the foregoing, he would personally make himself available to deliver papers at these seminars to individuals, particularly students and young graduates, who aspire to develop a career in telecom or any ICT related discipline.

He also said that such participants would win various prizes such as Laptops, phones, Internet Access, software, among others as part of TTC’s incentive to motivate them to take up career in telecom.

The vision of the company, he said, is to continually train and provide manpower for the ICT industry.

“So far, the company has graduated over 2000 trainees, with many of them gaining employment with major players in ICT industry, including Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) operators,” he said.

Commenting further, he noted that TTC Mobile is not unaware of a quite number of challenges, consisting loss of competent staff to bigger players in the industry companies, and even some of those he described as ‘pirates’ duplicating his firm’s training materials and running their purported similar courses.

“But in spite of these, we continue to excel. We are blessed with gifted and dedicated staff who sees their personal successes attached to the success of the company,” he declared.

Emphasizing that at TTC Mobile, they have grown beyond a one man company, “We are open to ideas. We bring in consultants and experts here and there to complement our works. We take time off to retrain ourselves locally and abroad so as to remain the leader that we already are in telecom training.”
