Mumbai-headquartered IT training institute Jetking Infotrain is planning to invest about ₹100-120 crore to open 300 centres across the country over the next three-five years, aiming to train 20 lakh students.

The institute plans to open the centres across metros and tier-I cities, and certain locations such as Udupi and Coimbatore.

“This is primarily going to be a hybrid model (offline and online courses) and also with online courses. The courses would be for across the spectrum, starting with IT in the first year and subsequently looking at other courses including digital marketing and cyber security among others,” said Avinash Bharwani, Vice-President (New Business) at Jetking.

The curriculum would also include cloud computing, Big Data and a range of technologies from Red Hat among others.

The new centres would be set up on a franchisee model, he added.

“There is a huge gap between demand and supply and we are trying to address this,” Bharwani added.
