Sudatel has received major recognition from the United Nations.

Following a careful evaluation process from a large number of submissions received by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), Sudatel Academy (Sudacad) has been re-selected to be one of six ITU Centres of Excellence for ICT applications, as well as wireless and fixed broadband.

According to Sudatel CEO Tarig Hamza Zain El Abdein, this selection reflects recognition of Sudacad as a high-quality ICT training provider in this area – and one from which other organisations can learn from.

“Sudacad is our academic arm dedicating to developing the education and skill levels of students and employees across Sudatel’s respective markets,” he says.

He says more – adding that the recognition reflects a mission that’s far more important than just making money on a product or service.

“We are an ambitious company which realises that a high quality of training service is vital to uplifting people’s lives,” he says.

“We have a well-framed vision and mission and will continue to work hard to ensure that we maintain our position as one of the most reliable ICT providers in North Africa.”

The ITU is a part of the United Nations, and is the UN’s specialised agency for information and communications technology (ICT). In October, the ITU’s 20th quadrennial Plenipotentiary Conference (known as PP-18) took place in the United Arab Emirates for the first time, with a global call for the world to “act as one” to connect the world’s nearly four billion people who remain unconnected to the Internet.
