The EdTalk | Bangalore
Edureka, a leading global online platform for niche, trending technology skills, reaffirmed its commitment to skilling and career development during the current pandemic, announcing a slew of new additional courses in cloud computing, cyber security and digital marketing, under its Advanced Executive Certification Programme.
The programme 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. Edureka provides courses covering the most cutting-edge, current technologies under this programme and witnessed high interest when it had introduced courses in Big Data Engineering and AI & 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 thousand learners applied for the five courses launched under the programme so far and there has been an increase in demand by 115% within the 6 months that the programme has been launched.
Edureka plans to introduce 4-5 more courses in trending technologies over the next 5 months and is in talks with some of the country’s best educational institutions to collaborate for the same.
Explaining the relevance of the programme, Vineet Chaturvedi, Co-founder & VP, Marketing, Edureka said, “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 specialise 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.”
He further added, “We are in talks with institutes to announce 4-5 more courses under this programme 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 programme and we are excited.”
