Students shoot for first Cisco degree

TWO local students are hoping to become Cambodia's first certified Cisco Systems trainers, according to First Cambodia (FC), a computer systems company.

Long Chhunhour and Horn Marong left for the United States on Friday to spend one week in Dallas, Texas, where they could become certified Cisco Systems instructors.

"No one in Cambodia has a CCSI certification, so it is a good opportunity to be a pioneer in this area," Long Chhunhour told the Post prior to his departure.

Based in California, Cisco is a leading provider of computer network technology and security worldwide.

FC, Cambodia's largest computer systems integration and company, partnered with Cisco in February 2008 and is authorised to sell, install and support Cisco products.

FC would be allowed to teach Cisco training courses.

"The program is a part of First Cambodia's investment in human resources development and could be a good model for other local companies," Horn Marong said.
