Nasscom certifies new courseware for IT skills

As the world's leading computing membership organisation, the The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Computer Society has used Nasscom's curricula to design its courseware to reduce the skills gap for techies beginning their career.

The certification is for the national skills qualification framework (NSQF) level 7 qualification packs. The society's education providers will train prospective candidates across the country and assess their skills for certifying them as competent in a particular job role by the council.

"We aim to drive, scale and sustain a skill development initiative to build a ready workforce for the IT industry. The certification will make our students a currency for global mobility", Chintala said. The council is the skill standard setting and certifying body of the IT-ITeS industry under the state-run National Skill Development Council (NSDC).

"We are partnering with Nasscom to provide our time-tested education and training resources in furtherance of India's campaign to raise education and training levels for creating a new generation of skilled workforce," society's executive director Angela Burgess said on the occasion.

The society is a professional body and a career-development source for global workforce of technology leaders, including professors, researchers, software engineers, IT professionals, employers, and students.
