Building Stronger Communities Through Affiliations and Partnerships


Mikrotik Academy was introduced in Deeper Life High School in 2016. Deeper Life High School is the first Secondary School to be accredited as a centre for Mikrotik Academy Programme in Nigeria.

The Academy prepares student to take a Mikrotik Certified Network Associate (MTCNA) Certification Exam. The training is based on Mikrotik RouterOS and RouterBoard series.

The RouterOS is the operating system on Mikrotik devices which is based on Linus Kernel. Installed on the company’s proprietary hardware (RouterBOARD series), or on standard x86-based computers, it turns a computer into a network router and implements various additional features, such as firewalling, virtual private network (VPN) service and client, bandwidth shaping and quality of service, wireless access point functions and other commonly used features when interconnecting networks. The system is also able to serve as a captive-portal-based hotspot system with user Management.

We have trained over 200 students and over 100 staff members have also taken this training and the MTCNA certification Exams.


The programme is not just aimed at getting students certified but to develop capacity and empower the students who desire to be network Engineers, system integrators, Internet service Providers, wireless experts and consultant on practical approach and best practices in the field which is the onus of life after school. The following are some areas students can look at:

  1. Deploy network solutions for SOHO(s) and SME(s)
  2. Set up hotspot and billing system for Cyber Café(s). Most ISP are       using Mikrotik today.
  3. Deploy network for campuses
  4. Set up Internet service provision
  5. Set up ICT training firm and consultancy service. etc

Robotics and Artificial Intelligence

Robotics and Artificial Intelligence was introduced as integral part of our  curriculum in 2021/2022 Academic session and is made compulsory for all  students except students in terminal classes (Basic 9 and SS3) because of the  volume of work and preparation for their external Examinations. 

Before now some of our campuses has been doing Robotics at different levels  and have participated in competition within Nigeria and outside the country. In  2015 some of our students participated in World Robotics Olympiad that was  held in Doha, Qatar. 

Series of Deliberation and consultations were made, but The Education  Secretary gave the push with the Slogan “You Either join the train or you are  left behind, because this Robotics and AI train does not have a reverse gear and  will not wait”. With this we partnered with two companies for training and  capacity building for staff, curriculum preparation, content preparation and  training materials. 

  1. EIN Educational Services handled Robotics training for staff and supply of  Dobot AI starter Kits. 
  2. AHER Technology handle the programming part, preparing curriculum  and video content for (HTML, CSS, JAVASCRIPT, PHP, PYTHON and  Libraries and frameworks) 

The curriculum was structured into Junior School and senior school as follows: 

  1. Junior School: Robotics, HTML, CSS and JavaScript. This is covered in  Basic 7 and Basic 8 
  2. Senior School: Robotics, PHP, PYTHON, Frameworks and Libraries. 

The idea is that the student would have covered front-end web application  development in their junior school and focus on the back-end and core of AI  when they get to senior school. 

The programme is well structured and integrated into our curriculum reflecting  on the timetable. Every class has 80 minutes per week of class activities and  other periods for practical mostly by weekend. Being treated as one of the  subjects in the school, it is also examined during our test and Examinations and  reflects in the students report sheets. 

Students engage in several projects and inter class and inter school  competitions. Robotics and AI has become part of the projects we showcase 

during our ACTIVATE programmes, which is a programme that we discover  talents in different areas. 

We are often having engagement with our partner companies to see how we  can always do things better. We have weekly review meetings and trainings where we look at different things that will enhance productivity. 

Our students are encouraged to take online short courses and certification  exams. Our students took HTML, CSS and JavaScript training and exams from in 2022. 

We are working towards partnering with organisations both local and  international that will improve our outcomes.
