World's largest IT training centre opens in India
NEW DELHI: Offshore IT Training firm Koenig Solutions today unveiled its training campus in Delhi, which the firm claims is the world's largest offshore IT Training facility, providing end-to-end solutions to corporates.
The campus, spread over an area of 18,000 sq ft, includes 70 classrooms and 30 testing stations and provides end-to-end solutions including accommodation, examination facilities, meals, daily transport etc, which are part of the course fee.
"We have a total of five centres in India -- Goa, Shimla, Dehradhun, Delhi and Bangalore -- as well as a training facility in Dubai. There are plans in place to expand it further in more such tourist centres," Koenig Solutions CEO and founder Rohit Aggarwal told PTI.
The company is looking at setting up training facilities in cities like Chennai and Pune in India and globally in West, South and East Africa, he added.
"IT training and certification today is a $20 billion industry worldwide and the education tourism market in India alone could become $1 billion by 2020. Koenig's education tourism business model is unique and aims to tap this growing market," Aggrawal said.
Offshore IT training is catching up among corporates, IT employees and students in countries of Europe, Africa, Middle East, South East Asia as well as in Australia and New Zealand, given the lack of cost optimised quality training resources and infrastructure, he added.
Koenig claims to have trained more than 20,000 students from over 50 countries since its inception in 1993, and has seen its trainer pool swell to 250.
The firm offers over 100 IT courses and is the authorised training partner of Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, VMware, Novell, Adobe, EMC, Citrix, Linux Professional Institute, among others.
