Q15. Are these tracks available in retail market or outside the Campus?

A. Yes, these courses are available in retail market, but the quality may differ from institute to institute. Most of the time, students land up doing training programs with un-authorized institutes.  The cost of doing such certification programs from an authorized centre/training institute would lie between 25000/- to 50000/-. Moreover the student has to travel on his own to such centres /institutes and hence becomes a hurdle. For that, the student will  need more time to spend on travelling and more money on fees, as fees for these courses in the retail market is much higher(please see the comparison).
