Orange MEA launches 2 internal training courses in Cybersecurity and Cloud

In collaboration with Orange Campus, Orange Middle East and Africa (MEA) has just launched 2 internal training courses on Cybersecurity and the Cloud to strengthen the key operational skills of employees in the area.

This year, 24 trainees from 10 French-speaking subsidiaries (Cameroon, Central African Republic, Ivory Coast, GOS, Guinea, Mali, Morocco, Democratic Republic of Congo, Senegal and Tunisia) are taking part in the second class of the Cybersecurity training program.

The objective of this training is for participants to simultaneously acquire academic and operational skills on their workstations to be ready to act in real situations, but also to accompany them in an individualized and personalized way in their development.

As for the Cloud course, for its first edition, it brings together 57 learners from 12 Orange MEA entities: Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Ivory Coast, GOS, Guinea, Madagascar, Mali, Morocco, Democratic Republic of Congo, Senegal and Tunisia.

The Cloud training program enables employees to develop skills in all operational areas related to Cloud computing through three business specialties: Technical, Pre-sales and Sales. It is a holistic approach that brings together professionals from 3 different backgrounds to work together on Orange MEA’s Cloud offers.

It should be noted that these 2 courses last one year and are given at a distance for the academic courses and are carried out in FEST (Formation En Situation de Travail). In fact, the employees learning remain at their workstation and have an estimated time dedicated to their course of study of 1.5 days per week.

Courses are given by the CNAM (Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers) using web conferences organized regularly over several weeks with the support of the Group’s and Orange MEA’s reference trainers. Orange Campus accompanies Orange MEA throughout the course, from its construction to its animation.

Cloud and Cybersecurity represent a strategic challenge for the Group and particularly for OMEA subsidiaries needing to strengthen their skills in these areas. Therefore, it was important to propose new corresponding training offers, with the main challenge being to support the increase in skills of the teams on these priority subjects and to support Orange’s transformation in Africa and the Middle East.

These courses are part of the development of the “7 new skills” identified as part of Kilimanjaro, the Orange MEA transformation program, and will contribute to meeting our skills challenge.
