Leading digital skills training provider Simplilearn has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) to upskill learners in digital skills. As a part of the MoU, 33 of Simplilearn's courses will be accredited by NSDC, making Simplilearn a part of the government's Skill India program.
Krishna Kumar, Founder & CEO of Simplilearn stated, “We are honored to gain accreditation by the NSDC which has recognized the impact Simplilearn's courses can create in making professionals job-ready with the right skills. With digital transformation disrupting organizations of all sizes across sectors, business functions and job roles are being reprised which is leading to a mismatch between the skills in demand and the current pool of talent. Our focus has always been to constantly upskill professionals and the young talent pool so that they stay relevant in the industry and benefit from the wide array of modern job roles that have been opening up.”
The first year of partnership aims to train 3,000 learners from across the country. Simplilearn will provide essential training and upskilling solutions to all the registered candidates of NSDC in various digital skills through its 33 courses. The course details will be available on the Skill India portal for the interested candidates.
Dr. Manish Kumar, Managing Director & CEO, NSDC stated, “NSDC, through its wide network of partners, endeavors to bring in diverse technological interventions to help build an effective learning system and create a workforce for new age skills.”
Simplilearn has helped more than 1,000,000 professionals across 150 countries to upskill, get trained and be prepared for the digital future. Last year, it launched a New-Hire Training Initiative that significantly shortens this time-to-productivity via a structured training curriculum for campus recruits.
