The Catholic institution also received a newly refurbished computer and diagnostic lab funded by the state-run telephone company, part of a quarter million dollar investment in the program.

The company decided to partner with SJC as it was the most ready to proceed, according to Executive Committee chairman Anwar Barrow.

Barrow says BTL is changing its approach to finding the people it needs to fill technical job positions with the company by training them in collaboration with SJC.

Ten employees of BTL are enrolled currently and the company plans to enroll 40 over three years but the program is open to the public.SJC lab1
