Mapúa to launch training academies

Mapúa University’s training arm Center for Continuing Education and Special Competencies (CCESC) offers new sets of training programs to support students and professionals in pursuit of expertise and career growth.

It will have a grand e-launch for its three new training academies, namely, the Project Management Academy, Cybersecurity Academy, and the Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA) Academy, with each having its own roster of training programs geared toward career paths and specializations in the aforementioned fields.

The academies are consortiums of training programs to be delivered by the University’s partners and individual lecturers who have vast experience locally and internationally in their respective industries.

The Cybersecurity Academy offers training programs covering the fundamentals of data and system security, which include threat intelligence, network security, digital forensic, configuration, and risk management, among others. Trainees of its programs will learn from experts of partner companies Cisco, Nexusguard, ERG Learning Center, and Huawei.

The Project Management Academy features tracks on Business Analysis, Project Management, Building Design and Construction, Program Management, Portfolio Management, Agile Management, and Six Sigma. Among its roster of partners from the industry are Kaizen Management Systems, Inc., MDCGroup, Inc., and CIM Technologies, Inc.

The Design for Manufacturing and Assembly Academy has 18 programs that aim to create a wide-range of career paths within construction and related industries. The programs teach principles in the context of Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Ecosystem and Design of Fabrication. CIM Technologies, Inc. and MDCGroup, Inc. are some of its partners from the industry, which are expected to carry out portions of the hands-on and virtual laboratory trainings.

The Academies’ programs are open to both local and foreign learners, as it will be offered in online, face-to-face, or blended (combination of online and face-to-face) mode. Learners will be guided in identifying courses to take that will help them specialize in a role that they would like to assume in a workplace.
