IT training and education firm Aptech Ltd is all set to venture into BFSI sector as the company is setting up the Aptech Banking and Finance Academy.
The new venture aims to fill the predicted skill deficit in the BFSI sector.
The Aptech Certified Banking Specialist (ACBS) program offered by the Aptech Banking and Finance Academy will offer new age banking skills in front office and banking operations. Its cutting edge curriculum has been curated specifically to meet the changing skill demands of the BFSI sector using learning activities based on case-studies and live market scenarios.
Aptech plans to add more programs for other financial services sectors under the same course.
The course will be initially offered in select 21 centers this year. However, it will be expanded to 100 centers by next year.
Anuj Kacker, Executive Director, Aptech Ltd said, “BFSI is one of the fastest growing sectors in India. The Indian banking industry is expected to become third largest in the world by 2025, but the biggest hurdle in its way of growth is the lack of skilled human assets.”
