Avaya and the National Telecommunications Institute of Egypt (NTI) have signed an agreement to train graduates and engineers on Avaya technology.

The two organisations will create a training facility, based on Avaya's communications solutions, to offer training recent graduates and engineers in the public and private sector, with the aim of increasing the skills base for IP-based communications in the country.

Staff from the NTI, which is affiliated to the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), will be trained by Avaya, with the centre looking to open admissions by April 2010.

Prof Dr Ahmed El Sherbini, Director of NTI and Deputy Minister of Communications and Information Technology for International Cooperation, said: "This relation is in accordance with and in support of the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology's plan of continued expansion and modernization of the national telecommunication infrastructure, by training of graduates, engineers and government employees on state-of-the-art telecommunications technology through NTI. In furtherance of this plan NTI plans to create an Avaya authorized training centre."

"This association strengthens our relationship with the NTI, and is significant for Avaya in Egypt and the region," said Hossam Amer, territory manager, Egypt & North Africa, Avaya. "It reiterates our commitment to and investment in the country, and boosts our efforts to provide enhanced training programs for its professional human resources. This partnership along with NTI's cooperation will ensure a greater number of Avaya-trained engineers in the market, increasing Avaya's outreach to organizations across Egypt and the region. In the near future, we plan to utilize this centre to provide training for more engineers and graduates from other countries in the region."
