Training companies have existed since the early days of the personal computer revolution, almost four decades ago. Organizations all over the world wanted to educate people about the fundamentals of programming – from how to programme and measure using a spreadsheet and how to network and optimise the use of new computing technologies as computing became more widespread.
With the volatile job market of India, it is clear that there exists quite a gap between university graduates and competent engineering and IT professionals which serve as the primary workforce of the digital era. Thus arises a need, which can only be served by institutions that commit themselves to bridging the skills gap by training aspirants in skills and competencies which are actually demanded in the real-world job market
An exemplar in the training industry which has carved a niche for itself as being one of the most prominent certification providers and skill facilitators in the country, is the Bengaluru and Hyderabad-based ISM UNIV.
ISM (Indian Service Machine) UNIV was established in the year 1994 as a small-scale industry to assemble and resale service personal computers, and soon after diversified as a small training institution offering special IT courses to enhance the employability and values of engineering professionals. Hardware repair, network management, and qualification courses such as MCSE, CCNA, Android, and Linux are all offered by the institute.
As the institute gained experience in training, it completely closed the PC resale vertical and concentrated on training and consultancy.
ISM has taught students and corporate customers about innovations like hardware maintenance and network operation, as well as credential courses like CAN, MCSE, CCNA, J2EE, Net, embedded networks, cellular networking, DSP, and VLS.
ISM UNIV now offers many specialized courses targeting the job market for freshers. It has state-of-the-art infrastructure with automated teaching tools and has established online platforms and forums for 360-degree training.
