June 2017. Since December 2016, Asylplus has been offering refugees and asylum seekers IT courses from Cisco Networking Academy at a public library Sendling in Munich. Nadia Miloudi, who is from Algeria, leads the course on IT Essentials (ITE) which provides an Introduction to computer technology and includes hands-on experience with hardware and software and the setup of a network for a tiny business. Asylplus' IT expert Muafaq Al-Mufti from Syria teaches the course on networking basics leading to the CCNA certificate, a world wide recognized entry level certificate for networking professionals.

After the classroom sessions the participants were able to continue and deepen their studies online with the Project Reconnect Chromebooks provided at the public library. 

At the end of June instructors and students had reason to celebrate: six participants of the first Cisco courses successfully passed the difficult certification exams. Cisco program manager Ann Andersen joined the proud instructor team at the public library in Sendling to congratulate the program graduates and hand them their certificates. The graduates are now looking for internships to apply their new knowledge and gain more experience.
