An education project has been started by the Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) Computer Center Directorate and the Department of Telecommunication operating under the TRNC Ministry of Public Works and Transport. In line with the request of the Department of Telecommunication, the Cisco Routing and Switching (Cisco CCNA R&S) technical education certification program aimed towards department personnel which commenced on 4th of June 2018 will be continuing until August 2018.
Within the scope of the program, Department of Telecommunication engineers are receiving education on all networks, routing and switching technologies, scalable structures and connectable networks from EMU’s “Cisco Certified Excellent Instructors” Yusuf Küçük and Doğuş Sarıca.
