COMPUTER literacy has become almost a mandatory skill in the 21st century to flourish in the job market. Students begin early from school, and go on to more specialised computer education, being offered by several institutes. One such institute is the Oxford Software Institute, which provides job-oriented learning certified by the ministry of labour and employment, government of India.
Computer education is much more than just being familiar with basic programmes like keying in text, several specialised courses are available such as multimedia — web and animation course. In this tech era, every organisation and institute wants to get recognition through the internet. That’s the reason why the corporate world always requires people who can design and maintain websites for organisations. Students, who are creative and interested in the web, can opt for a web-animation course.
Nowadays, every office has computers and they require maintenance from time to time. Students, who have a knack for computer hardware technology, can opt for hardware and networking course. Students are given training to assemble and troubleshoot computers and prepare networks of computer.
Be it a small commercial establishment or a reputed organisation, every company has an accounts department. But, nowadays, one cannot get a job by merely having knowledge about accounts because every company needs a computer accountant. That’s why many students are pursuing courses on computer accountancy. Besides the above mentioned three courses, Oxford also provides courses for data entry operator, net programming and spoken English. Students can opt for any of the courses based on their aptitude and eligibility.
Many are under the impression that these courses are expensive. But that’s not entirely true. Oxford charges students an affordable fee for lab maintenance, which is related to the selected course and duration, ranging from Rs 3,400 to 20,000.
Oxford Software Institute is a unit of Hindustan Software Education Ltd, an ISO 9001:2008 company. For the last 14 years, industry-expert trainers have been providing computer education to students. The only criterion for admission is the entry test. The forthcoming admission test is on July 31 at Hotel Jaypee Sidhartha, Pusa Road, New Delhi, registration for which can be done for free at any nearest Oxford centres.
