New digital training hubs in Dominican Republic to teach digital literacy skills
The Americas Institue of Technology in Dominican Republic will open two digital training facilities in Santo Domingo as part of Centros ITLA Project. This initiative is a coordinated effort sponsored by the government to increase digital inclusion and provide high-level tech education opportunities for the citizens.
José Armando Tavárez, Dean of the Americas Institute of Technology, announced that the program aims to generate at least 20 of these hubs throughout the country to train 20,000 people. This effort is aligned with the government’s goal of providing digital literacy courses to 350,000 citizens in different tech-related fields to fulfill the objectives of República Digital strategy.
The next two digital training hubs will open in April 2017 in the localities of Invivienda and San Luis.
