Course Deliverables
Classroom training
Instructor led classroom training will be given. All classes are demonstration based. We don’t teach just theory.
We teach every concept using real-time case studies. All our classrooms are digital classrooms.
Students can practice all the concepts taught in classrooms at our Lab facility. Each student will be given
individual setup to practice the lab. They need not combine and do labs. Our lab coordinators will help you
when you are doing the labs
