KnowledgeHut upGrad partners with Apis Training, a mobile technology training company
Bangalore-based technology skills provider KnowledgeHut upGrad has partnered with Sweden-based Apis Training, a global telecommunications mobile technology training platform. According to the official statement, thanks to this collaboration, Apis will operate as an authorized training partner. The alliance aims to create niche solutions to improve the skills of engineers in accordance with the requirements of Industry 4.0. The statement further adds that KnowledgeHut upGrad and Apis aim to bring the latest 5G technologies to Indian telecom engineers by the end of the fiscal year.
“We have partnered with Apis Training, the pioneers in mobile technology training to create custom solutions for the Indian market. The telecom sector in India has gone through a paradigm shift. With the highly anticipated deployment of 5G services, the demand for candidates with new era skills has increased and more and more companies are looking for skilled 5G-ready engineers and technicians who can build, deploy and test in a transparency of 5G-related applications,” Subramanyam Reddy, CEO, told KnowledgeHut upGrad.
He further added that there is a significant gap between supply and demand as most of the current workforce is not skilled enough. “As a leading provider of technology skills, we have always been focused on creating upskilling and retraining solutions that can meet industry challenges and our partnership with Apis is another step in that direction,” noted Reddy.
In addition, as part of this integration, training modules designed by Apis Training will allow candidates with the appropriate domain skills to focus on the system overview of 5G, the Internet of Things (IoT) in 4G and 5G, ETSI-Multi-access Edge computing among other key functions. The training program will be structured with the aim of making telecom engineers more employable and meeting the expectations of telecom employers in India. KnowledgeHut upGrad is part of the Ed-tech upGrad platform and Apis Training is a global training company in mobile technology.
