  • How do you apply your Teruko Ikeda training in your life and work?

    All the above-mentioned occupations and positions in my portfolio are because of the Teruko Ikeda ICT Training. This training not only teachs technology skills but it also teaches leadership skills. Obviously the technology I learned during the 2006 training gave me a sense of inner confidence. So immediately after the completion of the training, I have started the aforesaid accessible
    cyber cafe.
