The programme will be certified by NASSCOM Foundation and other partners, having validity for further jobs. The students will be trained in a batch of 30 students each for different programmes which will simultaneously run at different locations in Jammu region. There are 70 skill development programmes which will be offered under the NASSCOM Foundation, Concentrix Limited and University of Jammu tie-up. The tie-up will culminate into organising and bringing in job fairs and placement opportunities at the undergraduate level.
