    The National Youth Service Corps has held an exercise workshop to improve the performance of its Certification officers.

    The workshop, whose theme was: "Effective Certificate Management in NYSC Using ICT Platform," took place in Kaduna

    Addressing members at the opening ceremony today, the Director-General, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure, reminded them of the sensitive nature of their schedules, particularly as regards handling of value documents, which are critical to the operations of the Scheme.

    Kazaure said the training was to prepare them with necessary knowledge and skills to enhance their competence.

    "The workshop also aims at providing members with the platform for initiating new ideas that will assist in the change of our certification method to a fully automatic one in line with the current computerization.

    "The theme of the workshop, which is "Effective Certificate Management in NYSC Using ICT Platform," was intentionally chosen to reflect the successes recorded through this change and chart a new course," he said.

    The Director-General asked members to come up with resolutions that would assist in consolidating the gains made in the digitization method.

    He also guaranteed them that the Management would continue to provide the enabling environment for the effective release of their responsibilities.

    Earlier in his welcome address, the Director of Corps Certification, Alhaji Aliyu Taura, said the entire Scheme's certification processes had been computerized, adding that the automation of the production commenced in the last quarter of 2011.

    "Besides the Certificate of National Service and Exemption Certificate, Letters of Exclusion can be generated and issued online," he said.
