UK's NOCN (formerly National Open College Network) has joined hands with All India Management Association (AIMA) to provide online skill courses and certifications in India.
The NOCN is a UK based provider of occupational qualifications. The NOCN is set to share its management training, assessment and certification with AIMA. It also plans to adapt the former's short management courses for the Indian market.
AIMA will conduct online courses for individual as well as organisations using its partner's IT platform, content, assessment and certification support.
Also, NOCN will recognise and certify the association's existing certificate courses, starting with the certified trainer programme scheduled to begin by the end of August 2015.
The online certification programme is open to those with a bachelor's degree with or without work experience.
Aspiring students have to apply online to AIMA's Centre for Management Education.
The collaboration between AIMA and NOCN is meant to help Indian students and employees pick and upgrade management skills through internationally recognised certification.
