Information about the project
SMART project
The contract for the SMART project was signed on November 20th, 2012 with Telecommunications provider Cable and Wireless and the National Telecommunications Regulatory Commission. The project provides subsidized internet access to 340 households at a very low monthly cost. Additionally, the project saw the introduction of two new programs at the St Vincent and the Grenadines Community College; the Associate Degree program in Software Development and the Associate Degree Program in Cyber Security. These programs are of critical importance and the NTRC assisted in developing these courses with the relevant technical expertise from the Ministry of Education and the Community College. In addition to this, a state of the art computer lab was constructed and outfitted with Macintosh computers to aid in the development of apps and to perform audiovisual work. The St Vincent and the Grenadines Community College was also outfitted with hardware and software for them to provide their existing and future courses online and in real time.
