SMME DEVELOPMENT PROGRAME

ICTs can also boost growth in other sectors and promote SMME development by reducing costs and geographic barriers while increasing efficiencies and creating new opportunities. The development of central registers of skills and employment opportunities can further facilitate employment. Digital literacy programmes are likely to increase the employability of individuals across South Africa.

 

REGISTRAR RESELLER TRAINING PROGRAMME

The Primary Objective:

The Primary Objective for the Registrar and Reseller Training is to promote and create awareness of .ZA domain name and to grow the namespace:

Promote: Reaching out to SMMEs, previously disadvantaged groups from townships and rural areas and encouraging businesses and individuals to participate in the industry by removing the barriers to entry and red tapes through Registrar and Reseller training.

Awareness: Raising awareness of .ZA, through the Registrar and Reseller Trainings, informing SMMEs of opportunities available under .ZA namespace; opening the industry to individuals who would not have previously had access to mentioned information, nor support to leverage from as the pursue opportunities under the .ZA umbrella.

Grow : Ultimately achieving growth of the .ZA Domain name through the increased number of Black ISPs/Registrars in a form of domain registrations because each province will eventually have a substantial number of ISPs/Registrars to cater to it.
