Indian Institute of Job-oriented Training (IIJT) has announced its foray into Karnataka by opening two centres in the city.

The Kolkata-based vocational training institute plans to open another six in the city. It has 35 centres across the country, and intends to open 12 in the State by April 2007. Each centre entails an investment of Rs 15-20 lakh.

"Vocational training is critical to getting a job. Practical skills in finance and accounting are provided in our courses, along with real-life situations that are to be resolved using PC interface. This caters to the real need of the industry," said Mr Devesh Srivastava, CEO, IIJT.

The institute offers one-year courses as well as shorter specialised courses on topics such as taxation and accounting. The charge for the one-year course is Rs 30,000. The institute offers NSE training too, in which students are taught stock broking and technical analysis of the stock market.
