Center for IT Professional Development (CIPD) was primarily initiated by Mr. Peter
Tobbin to address the shortage of IT professionals at all levels in Ghana and the
West African region, CIPD was tasked with producing professionals equipped with necessary
skills required by the fast-growing IT industry in Ghana.
CIPD works toward the vision and strategy of the Ghanaian Government by filling the
national need for technology professionals at all levels.
Since 2006, the institute has now grown from being a successful local player in Ghana
to establishing itself as a regional player, with activities and participants from
neighboring West African countries.
Supported by the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA),
CIPD has built solid reputation for excellence in IT education.
CIPD believes that solutions to many of the critical problems that face humanity
can be found in improved use and understanding of technology, and that it is the
duty of the Center to produce leaders prepared for this challenge.
CIPD has realized the efforts organizations are making to identify the problems in
their IT outfit and finding solutions to it. An IT outfit must always move with time
if they want to beat their competitors to the game. Their strategy must be flexible,
reliable, and CIPD wants to make sure such a dream is achieved at an affordable cost
We articulate our clients to move forward towards their objective, mission and vision.
Subsequently, we assess the organization’s current operating system and this process
involves an effort to profile gaps if any and tailor measures to meet their specifications.
Center for IT Professional Development creates new knowledge and educates and inspires
students to acquire the competencies needed to lead in scientific discovery and in
the creation, application and management of technology to solve complex problems
and to build new enterprises.
