While unveiling the re-branded academy, which was formerly known as Nigerdock Training Centre, Group Corporate Affairs Director, Jagal-Joy Okebalama, noted that by re-branding the centre, the company would be able to replicate its excellent quality footprints in the industry.
“It will also be able to increase its accreditation portfolio, enable partnerships with relevant public and private organizations, arm Nigerian youth with skills for employment and life and will ultimately be franchised across Nigeria with the bid to offering internationally accredited qualifications in various disciplines,” she added.
