Asset International, the high-end technology training arm of Aptech, is all set to admit its second batch of students for the 16 month training program it has designed along with Australia IT Careers Institute (AITCI), the wholly owned subsidiary of Australian IT & Telecommunication services company,


Asset had tied up with AITCI last September for this international course wherein students would undergo four months training in India and the rest 12 months training in Australia. Students would undergo the e-com@asset ver 2 training in Net infrastructure, Software Engineering, Web Content Development and Java Application Development in India. Then they would land in Australia to do the Diploma in Information Technology-Software Development, which includes subjects such as Business Communication, Electronic Commerce, WAP-Wireless Technology Application, Software Development, System Testing and Analysis and Design. At the end of the training, they will get to work on live projects individually and in a team with Powerlan. Their first batch of 34 students would be leaving for Australia in August.

The Indian leg of the training would cost students Rs 75,000 while the Australian leg would cost Rs 2,40,000.


"This program provides a clear career path for students looking at the international market, which wasn't present until now," says Ravi Dighe, Head, Asset International. 

"Australia as well as Asia is going through a severe IT skill shortage. Right now, there are 35,000 unfulfilled IT or IT enabled jobs in Australia, which can be met by the Indian students. Thailand and Hong Kong are also big markets for Indian software professionals," said Harshad Chavan, Business Development Manager,


They are looking at hitting the magic figure of 100 students in this batch and has pegged the number of students from Chennai at 24 as against eight in the previous batch. 

Asset International and AITCI would explore the possibilities in the South East Asian market in the
