We live in an era of ICT dominance where governments, businesses, journalists, and citizens alike depend on ICT in a variety of ways. This requires everyone to have a basic understanding of ICT and how to make practical use of it. It doesn’t matter whether you are an ordinary citizen, public employee, or leader. Becoming a competent user of ICT is crucial in one’s career, and particularly necessary for those seeking leadership positions in organizations. Just to recount how the modern society is deeply intertwined with ICT, you can consider social platforms that rely on it including Facebook and Twitter, which have over 1 billion users and 200 million monthly users respectively.

It is therefore important to equip yourself with relevant knowledge and skills on ICT in order to remain competent and practical. If you are an MP, Senator, MCA, Ward Coordinator, County Coordinator, Governor, Clerk, assistant to Public Official, County assembly Speaker, Chief, Sub chief, public servant, civil servant, or ordinary citizen working in the public or private sector, this course is more valuable to you.
