AS part of celebrating 20 years of its existence, Botho University on Monday this week held a two-day basic Informational Technology (IT) training for police officials.

The training, which included documentation, reporting and record keeping using Microsoft Excel programme, was attended by a total of 23 officers from the Lesotho Mounted Police Service (LMPS).

According to the university’s Senior Corporate Training Officer Mamello Makote, the purpose was to equip the police officers with Microsoft Excel skills that would help them perform their day to day duties with excellence.

She further noted the training was part of the 20 minutes of excellence activity that is part of the 20th anniversary celebrations planned by the Maseru campus.

“The training was part of the 20 minutes of excellence activity that is part of the 20th anniversary celebrations planned by the Maseru campus. 20 minutes of excellence is a concept driven by the Maseru campus staff as adopted from the 20th anniversary of the university and figuratively used to mean spending some time to serve the community,” Ms Makote said in a statement.

“The Faculty of Computing conducted the training in a fully computerised state-of-the-art classroom at the Botho University campus in Maseru. The purpose was to equip the police officers with excel skills that would help them perform their day to day duties with excellence. Content of the training included documentation, reporting and record keeping using excel. It went further to cover sorting, filtering, mail merge functions,” she continued.

Ms Makote said more activities were lined-up as the university continues to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
