Open source solutions firm Red Hat Inc has signed an agreement with the Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge (TASK) to offer Red Hat Academy training and certification programs to engineering students in the State. The TASK is set up by the State government to equip the youth with job-oriented skills.

This partnership targets to cover 1,500 students in the next two years and help them gain expertise in open source skills and certification on emerging technologies like DevOps, Cloud and IT automation.

“TASK and Red Hat would discuss areas for collaboration to equip all TASK Partner colleges with Red Hat Enterprise Linux for purpose of training and services for their labs and to subsidise the cost of training and certification for faculty,” a TASK statement said here on Wednesday.

“With this agreement,, TASK and Red Hat are aiming to prepare enterprise-ready talent in India. Open Source solutions are core to innovation in areas like cloud computing, containers, mobile, artificial intelligence and machine learning and beyond,” it said.

Red Hat Academy helps institutions provide Linux and Open Source curriculum. As part of the programme, TASK member institutions will receive no-cost instructor training and support.

This agreement will help students learn about Red Hat Technologies and solutions and acquire open source skills. “We can help prepare students for strong careers support future open source contributors and innovators,” Rajesh Rege, Managing Director of India and SAARC at Red Hat, said.
