Udacity, a key player in disruptive learning technologies, has partnered with Google to introduce Associate Android Developer Fast Track program for intermediate level students. This training program is designed to help students hone their skills in order to successfully pass the Associate Android Developer Certification Exam launched by Google. With this program, Udacity aims to helps students prove their Android Development skills and earn certification directly from Google.
The Associate Android Developer Fast Track program is a model of efficiency, designed to teach the students the essentials to successfully pass the exam and earn certification from Google. It focuses on specific skills, which are calibrated to align with an entry-level Android Developer role. The program includes three courses, three projects and the Google certification exam fee. A scholarship of Rs. 5000 will be given by Udacity on successful completion of the course if the student enrols in the month of February.
Candidates who successfully complete the course will be connected with the hiring partners – Paytm, 1MG, Haptik, Urbanclap, Zomato, Digitribe, Dailyhunt, Headout and Inshorts, based on the needs of the hiring partners. With this, students/candidates will get a direct and privileged exposure to jobs in this sector.
Adding to this, Ishan Gupta, MD India, Udacity said, “As companies race to capitalise on the opportunities of the new mobile economy, there is a huge demand-supply gap for skilled Android developers in the country. Today, students/professionals work towards becoming an entrepreneur, a developer or creator but it is essential that they have the right skills. With this course, we aim to invest in training and enabling individuals to accelerate their journey of growth. We already have seen large number of enrollments in India across android courses on our platform.”
Amit Sinha, Snr. Vice President – Paytm said, “India’s rapidly evolving technology ecosystem has presented a wide range of unique business opportunities for new-age entrepreneurs. While there is a huge potential market, hiring the right talent is still a challenge owing to the dearth of a skilled workforce. Our partnership with Udacity would enable us to further strengthen our talent pool as we move into the next stage of our growth.”
Android certification programs from Google are becoming the industry benchmark for Android development skills.
