General Notes
  • All our courses can be Tailor-made to participants needs
  • The participant must be conversant with English
  • Presentations are well guided, practical exercises, web-based tutorials, and group work. Our facilitators are experts with more than 10years of experience.
  • Upon completion of training, the participant will be issued with a Foscore development center certificate (FDC-K)
  • Training will be done at the Foscore development center (FDC-K) center in Nairobi Kenya. We also offer more than five participants training at the requested location within Kenya, more than ten participants within east Africa, and more than twenty participants all over the world.
  • Course duration is flexible and the contents can be modified to fit any number of days.
