“We have partnered with Apis Training, the pioneers in the field of mobile technology training to create customised solutions for the Indian market. The telecom sector in India has gone through a paradigm shift. With the much-anticipated roll out of 5G services, the demand for candidates equipped with new age skills has grown and more companies look for skilled 5G ready engineers and technicians who can seamlessly build, deploy and test 5G related applications,” Subramanyam Reddy, CEO, KnowledgeHut upGrad said.
He further added there is a significant demand-supply gap, as most of the current workforce is not skilled adequately. “As a leading technology skilling provider, we have always focused on creating up-skilling and re-skilling solutions which can address the challenges in the industry and our partnership with Apis is another step in this direction,” Reddy noted.
