The first 6-month training session is only available in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Therefore you must be located or be a resident of Ethiopia in order to qualify for this first session. Each applicant is required to have previous programming experience. This program is not an entry level programming class. The assumption is that applicants have basic foundation in programming and proficient in at least one programming language. Preferred applicants should have a computer science or information systems degree with a strong background in programming. Freelancers and consultants who have been developing applications and implementing systems for at least 2 years, are welcomed to apply. In future sessions Gebeya will be providing future entry level courses in programming.
