A year-long computer application training for underprivileged students in Jammu and Kashmir’s Ramban district has begun with up to 20 girls, according to an official on Tuesday. The course was launched by the Army.
The project was envisioned in line with the government’s Skill India and Digital India campaign. It is a package that includes numerous computer skills and fundamental computer knowledge, including Windows operating system, MS Office, and Internet, the official added.
The students taking the year-long “advance diploma in computer application” course, designed to empower women, will, according to him, have both practical and theoretical understanding of computers.
According to the official, all successful students will receive the accreditation of “Advance Diploma in Computer Application.”
The Sub-Divisional Magistrate of Banihal, Zaheer Abass Bhat, who interacted with the trainees alongside army officials, praised the Army’s efforts and asserted that computer education will provide the girls opportunities to become self-reliant.
The completion of this course will provide students with options in both the sphere of further education and employment, according to Bhat.
