The one silver lining to the deadly Coronavirus and the resultant lockdown is the plethora of courses being offered by several online platforms
Bengaluru-based startup IntelliPaat, a professional training and certification platform, is one such entity that is offering both free and paid online courses.
“People are increasingly becoming keen to upskill themselves during the lockdown instead of sitting idle in their free time. Many sections of the society are not willing to pay so we launched the free courses last month. So far, close to 10,000 people have enrolled for the courses,” says Diwakar Chittora, the founder of IntelliPaat.
“The curriculum is designed by our industry experts and mentors that will empower the participants with an effective skill set,” he adds.
The free online courses are carefully selected concepts that will impart the necessary skills to get into companies, and there are no prerequisites you need to fulfill. All you need is a passion to learn and an internet connection.
