  4. Hello sir,
    I am really appriciate all your good works in the IT Manager Institution, I wanted to ask when Nigerian can get this kind opportunity but going through the photos show you were ones here, so do u have any plans coming to Nigeria? i may not be too financially strong to travel to Dubia and the rest country to attend classes.

    • Hello Joshua,
      Yes, I have been to Nigeria twice now. Held a class in Abuja and also one in Lagos. No plans to return at this point but if our host (Digital Jewels) decides to host another class we will make it happen.

      If you aren’t able to attend the IT Manager Institute in Dubai, you might consider attending the Institute by webinar or through the Self Study. Details are at http://itmanagerinstitute.com/training/agenda.

      Best regards,
      Mike
