NOCN forges partnership with Nettur Technical Training Foundation (NTTF)

NOCN is delighted to announce that Nettur Technical Training Foundation (NTTF) is now an approved centre.

NTTF is an educational foundation trust established in 1959 based in Bengaluru, India. It operates 16 centres across India delivering corporate and vocational training and assists Indian industries through its unique collaborative initiative for producing quality human resources, by establishing training centres in partnership with industry associations. NTTF has approximately 6,500 students and 20,000 corporate employees completing qualifications each year.

NOCN is in the process of benchmarking NTTF’s 3 year diploma across four disciplines; Engineering & Digital Manufacturing, Electronics & Embedded System, Mechatronics Engineering & Smart Factory and Computer Engineering & IT Infrastructure.

This new partnership builds on the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed earlier this year. It will enable students to be trained to an international standard and be job-ready for the global employment market, enhancing their employability skills to secure sustainable work within India and or overseas.
