Cisco Network Academy at ORT Moscow Technology School is announced the best

Cisco Network Academy at ORT Moscow Technology School is announced the best among school academies in Russia in 2015-2016 academic year.

In June 2012, Cisco and ORT Russia signed a memorandum of understanding. The same year Cisco Network Academies were opened in several ORT educational institutions. Over the past 4 years more than 100 high school students of ORT Moscow Technology School obtained prestigious Cisco professional certificates.

“Studying at a Cisco Network Academy is highly appreciated both by children and their parents. Through this project our school reached a new level of teaching practical IT skills. A school-leaver finishes school with one or two professional certificates, which are of great value on the labor market and gives significant advantage to University applicants,” noted Marina Moiseeva, Moscow ORT Technology School principal, at the Annual Forum for Cisco Academies Instructors in Russia.

In 2014-2015 academic year the Instructors of ORT Moscow Technology School’ Cisco Academy Ilya Spivak and Arkadiy Gordon were recognized the best trainers among the all schools of Russia. On April 7, at the Annual Forum for Cisco Academies Instructors of Russia the school and its instructors were granted diplomas and prizes. Marina Moiseeva gave a master-class on ways of realizing Cisco Network Academy program at school.

“ORT gives our students access to the most up-to-date and in-demand educational programs. Collaboration with Cisco is one of the good examples of our business to NGO cooperation in FSU region. Cisco Network Academies are running efficiently at Moscow and Kiev ORT schools. Such projects attract parents and the community’s attention to the school. We are happy that our students get the best out of modern education,” noted Mikhail Libkin, the Director of Development of ORT Russia.

At the moment an introduction one year course is taught at school – IT Essentials and an basic course for networking professionals – CCNA. Over 30 students take these courses each year.
