BANGALORE, August 30: The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP),
Asia pacific Development Information Programme (APDIP) and Cisco Systems
Inc. has announced an innovative partnership to bring Internet education
to students in developing countries in the Asia Pacific region.

APDIP and Cisco will jointly fund and set up 10 Cisco Networking
Academics in nine developing countries in the Asia Pacific region to
provide students with advanced IT curricula to leverage the enormous
opportunities created by the Internet while creating a talent pool for
building and maintaining networks.

The Cisco Networking Academy Programme is a non-profit education
initiative designed to equip students with conceptual and practical skills
that will enable them to design, build, maintain and troubleshoot the
networks that connect computers. The curriculum also prepares students for
the Cisco Certified Networking associate (CCNA) exam, a certification that
positions them for immediate openings in a talent-hungry job market or for
engineering and science-focused college students.
