For its first promotion, a hundred Moroccan engineers will be trained in Salesforce technology.
Intelcia IT Solutions, the division dedicated to IT solutions and services of the Intelcia group, is launching the Smartforce Academy dedicated to training and developing the skills of engineering students.
In partnership with D&A Technologies, an integrator of Salesforce solutions in Morocco and abroad, the academy targets students at the end of their course during their internship and their end-of-study project (PFE). The trainees will be accompanied by experts and will obtain two Salesforce certifications as part of a 6-month course. The students, who will distinguish themselves, will also have a promise of pre-employment within the teams of Intelcia IT Solutions.
In addition to the 2 promotions of laureates scheduled in March and September of each year, the objective is to extend the training to other profiles from 2023 to make them Salesforce experts.
For this first promotion, some 40 engineers from Moroccan Grandes Ecoles will be welcomed out of more than 2,000 applications received. The idea is to train them on Salesforce technology where the demand is still growing.
By the end of the year, the two partners will train a hundred profiles on hard and soft skills and with the ambition of having 200 engineers trained each year.
“The goal of this academy is to provide an alternative to the shortage of Salesforce resources in the market. Our ambition is also to deploy the academy in new basins, and to offer its course within the geographies where the Intelcia Group is already present”, specifies Malika Ahmidouch, CEO of Intelcia IT Solutions.
For his part, Driss Lahrichi, CEO and founder of D&A Technologies, points out that “the Salesforce tool is the most complete offer for companies in managing their customer relationship, through an omnichannel experience, AI and hyperforce infrastructure. Salesforce experts are particularly in demand on the job market”.
Ultimately, the new academy responds to an immediate market need and to the professional project of a large number of engineering students. At the end of this course, the winners will be armed to better understand and meet the needs of their future customers thanks to a perfect mastery and expertise on the tool.
