Aptech, Microsoft team up on learning material
MUMBAI: Computer education firm, Aptech, entered into a tie-up with world’s top IT firm Microsoft to launch embedded courses and certification to its students.

Aptech, which has 360 learning centres across India and has presence in 35 countries, will be bearing the additional costs that come as part of the tie-up and the fees for the courses offered stay unchanged, its Chief Executive and Managing Director, Ninad Karpe, told reporters here.

As part of the tie-up, Microsoft’s learning material will be embedded into long-term courses offered by Aptech after which students can appear for a test to get a Microsoft global certification which increases his/her chances of landing a job.

Aptech will introduce the Microsoft course material and certification across its centres in the country to start with and gradually take it to select geographies beyond India, Karpe said.

It is targeting to enrol 1,50,000 students as a part of the scheme by 2015, he added.
