Upon commencement of the camp, each successful applicant is allocated a laptop and other accessories to work with during the course of the camp.
The following criteria are considered during the application and admissions process. All applicants are screened for:
- FAMILIARITY WITH THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE
The applicant must be able to understand written and spoken English.
- ABILITY TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS
All successful applicants will be required to give their full attention in the sessions. Guardians must make sure that the applicants follow the instructions given so that they do not lag behind the rest of the trainees.
- ABILITY TO USE A KEYBOARD AND MOUSE
A familiarity with the the QWERTY layout of the keyboard will be a huge advantage for the participant. It can help them to keep up with the exercises at a much faster rate. It is assumed that all shortlisted applicants will already know how to use a mouse or touch pad. (It is not the purpose of this camp to teach successful applicants how to use the keyboard or mouse.)
- FAMILIARITY WITH WEB BROWSERS
Applicants must know how to browse the Internet using a web browser like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Avast SafeZone Browser, Microsoft Edge, and Microsoft Internet Explorer.
- FAMILIARITY WITH MICROSOFT WINDOWS DESKTOP
All successful applicants should already be familiar with the Microsoft Windows Desktop and the Windows GUI experience, and be able to navigate the Windows file system with ease. (It is not the purpose of this camp to teach successful applicants how to navigate the desktop and general files system.)
Applicants with a basic understanding of these web scripting technologies will be at an advantage. This, however, is not a strict requirement.
Each successful participant will be awarded a Certificate of Completion, which will certify that the applicant has successfully completed five (5) days of intensive training.
In addition to the certificate, each participant will be leaving the camp with the laptop that was allocated to her at the beginning of the camp. This is the ensure that the girls continue to practice the skills learned during the training, during their own time and pace.
