The Regional Internet Registry for Latin America and the Caribbean (LACNIC) and Cisco have partnered to provide training to 350 participants who completed the Ayitic Goes Global program (

This alliance will allow Ayitic Goes Global graduates to participate in an online course on entrepreneurship in Information Technology (ICT) offered through the Cisco Networking Academy (

The course seeks to strengthen the abilities of those who successfully completed the workshops on digital skills, networking and Internet security offered by LACNIC and the International Development Research Center (IDRC) of Canada through its Ayitic Goes Global program.

The course has begun last week with the first of the seven modules developed by the Cisco Networking Academy. To complete the training, participants must go through two modules each week and then pass a final examination during the first week of September.

In addition to LACNIC and Cisco, Transversal, responsible for providing support in the use of the Cisco learning platform in Haiti, and Push Haiti, an organization that promotes the insertion of Haitian professionals into the labor market, will also participate in this initiative.

The course will be tutored by local experts in entrepreneurship and members of Push Haiti. The plan includes the creation of online discussion groups based on participants’ areas of interest.
In closing the activity, the top thirty students will be invited to attend a networking event with leaders of the Haitian IT industry that will take place in Port-au-Prince, at one of the city’s most important co-work spaces.
