Internet of Things (IoT) & Data Coding

CBT Based Program

The course offered for Internet of Things (IoT) is Competency Based Training (CBT). CBT program is designed and delivered by adopting a systematic approach, focusing on better employability of the trainees with strong market linkages. It is 80 % practical training and 20 % theory with mandatory feature of internship in industry. Through competency-based assessment, the trainees will be assessed after completing the programme and awarded high quality national vocational certificates.
