Understanding this need of the hour, Chitiz Agarwal, CEO, Techila Global Services, launched Techila Academy that provides free courses in salesforce software. The global pandemic and lockdown’s fatal effect on the economy of our country has been the talk of the hour. Every sector has lived the repercussion of the nation-wide lockdown. Especially, the service sector condition has been out of the woods.
The Techila Academy was opened with a bid to contributing for the service sector and to train skilled as well as knowledgeable professional in the salesforce domain. Education is something that has a long-term effect on society. Therefore, Mr. Agrawal chose education to bring welfare in the service sector.
The Techila Academy was established on September 5, 2020 (Teacher’ Day), which is same day Techila was founded 8 years ago. Speaking about the initiative Mr. Agrawal said,
“Salesforce is an explosive technology and it’s training costs around 25-1L or more. This is our way of giving back to society”.
“Initially, we decided to train 100 students per month but in the first month itself we got 500 plus registration, this boosted our motivation and will to carry out the initiatives,” added Mr. Agrawal.
The training program under Techila Academy consists of four sessions viz. Marketing cloud, salesforce admin, salesforce development, and Pardot. In these two months of the training session, students get a detailed exposure of all the topics related to salesforce, which makes them industry ready. There are other webinars too on niche skills like CPQ, Mulesoft, Cloudcraze etc.
Another perk of joining the training program is that it is linked with an internship program. This allows the students to get practical experience and enhance their skill set. Another benefit of taking up the training is a chance to apply the skills and knowledge gained at the program. All the students are also given a mini project in the last month and a test is also conducted at the end of the program. The student’s performance eligibility to get the internship certificate.
These training sessions are conducted by Mr. Agrawal himself along with his enthusiastic employees, who have 7-8 years of industry experience and have gratefully volunteered for the initiative. Techila Academy has trained as good as 500+ candidates in the last two months. It is still growing with a constant strength of students.
