Edtech Launch: Edureka Partners with Premium Institutes to Fulfil Deep Skilling in IT with Advanced Program
Edureka, a global online platform for niche, trending technology skills has partnered with premium institutes to deliver Advanced Executive Certification Programs to reaffirm its commitment to skilling and career development during the current pandemic. They announced a slew of new additional courses in cloud computing, cyber security, and digital marketing, under the Program.
They also plan to announce additional courses post witnessing an increased interest in ‘deep skilling’ and specialization by IT professionals during the pandemic.
The program is a first of its kind, providing online higher education for technology professionals, delivered in association with leading educational institutions including E&ICT Academy IIT Kanpur, E&ICT Academy NIT Rourkela, E&ICT Academy NIT Warangal, and IMT Ghaziabad.
“While IT professionals look to upskill themselves with current and new technologies consistently through online certification courses, they prefer short term modules and certifications that they can quickly complete and add on to their profile. In the current pandemic, the significant shift that we have seen is the growing interest for ‘Deep Skilling’ and learning futuristic technologies in a more comprehensive manner, providing them the ability to specialize in these skills and leverage it to continue to grow their careers during these tough times. Our partnership with some of the best institutes to offer these courses and certifications, has given us the added edge in providing increased recognition and credibility for the courses,” Vineet Chaturvedi, Co-founder and VP, Marketing, Edureka said in a statement.
The Advanced Executive Certification Program
Edureka provides courses covering the most cutting-edge, current technologies under this program and witnessed high interest when it had introduced courses in Big Data Engineering and AI and ML last year, to test the response from IT professionals.
Spread over an extensive period of nine months, unlike most other short-term online certification courses, and including over 450 hours of learning and a number of practical assignments, the advanced courses are designed to propel IT professionals towards growth in career and salaries, by enabling them to learn cutting-edge technologies in-depth.
Over 200,000 learners applied for the five courses launched under the program so far, and there has been an increase in demand by 115% within the six months that the program has been launched. Edureka plans to introduce four-five more courses in trending technologies over the next five months and is in talks with some of the country’s best educational institutions to collaborate for the same.
“We are in talks with institutes to announce four-five more courses under this program over the next six months and this will position Edureka as the only online platform, providing advanced, deep skilling technology courses and certifications. The initial feedback from our students that they do see it as enabling growth in their careers at such a time, motivates us to expand and enhance this program and we are excited,” said Chaturvedi.
