At the recent Academy Safari the feedback was that Africa; is now the fastest growing region, the program has nearly doubled in size over the past year. Industry recognition of the Netacad program is also becoming evident. Cisco has recently set up a career portal for Netacad students where companies looking to recruit can review their CVs. Our FWLan students are successfully completing their course and will be able to use the site to get their names out.

One of the students in the Sun stream, Mapule Dlamini who is currently studying Java Web Developments, was recently selected as one of the top 100 students in SA by Brightest Young Minds. The competition is open to all South African Universities and the top 100 students are selected from all the applicants.
