Google launches Android Skilling and Certification Programme in India

The tech giant Google has launched its "Android Skilling and Certification" programme in India. The initiative aims to train about 2 million developers and help make the country a global hub of high-quality mobile developers.

Caesar Sengupta, Vice President (Product Management) at Google, said that,“India is expected to have the largest developer population globally, overtaking the US, by 2018, with four million developers. But today only 25 per cent of developers are building for mobile.”

“We are launching a specially-designed instructor-led training programme on Android Fundamentals. This will be made available across public and private universities and training institutes of the National Skill Development Corporation of India (NSDC),” he said.

Peter Lubbers, Head of Google Developer Training, said that, the company has  partnered universities like Lovely Professional University, Amity University, GD Goenka University and Rayat Bahra University among others for its initiative.

The tech giant has also partnered training organizations like Koenig,  Edureka, Manipal Global,  Udacity, Simplilearn and UpGrad, who will operate as Authorised Android Training Partners in India.

“We are also training the trainers to update their Android courseware to prepare students for the Android Certification and a career in Android development...We expect to train about 4,000 faculty members,” Lubbers said.
