Brian’s Langat testimony
“…Just after completing my University education, where I was doing my engineering course, I felt that I lacked essential hands on skills. Skills that would prove myself worthy to the outside world. But then I got this opportunity at Viscar Industrial Capacity Ltd, the EGDP program. This program has completely turned around my story. It has shaped my career to a direction that I would want it to go. Now I can be able to showcase my technical skills in almost all telecommunication requirement as well as demonstrate wise business decisions, thanks to the EGDP. If there is anyone who feel they lack that practical skill set, I wish them to know that Viscar can help them get the best out of their career vision. That the EGDP has the best tutors one would want to associate with. I have progressed and I wish many others can join this wonderful opportunity to achieve the dreams they have…”
