India’s tremendous growth in the telecommunications and networking field has created the requirement and market for telecom training in India.  On January 2, 2009, the Times of India published several articles about the high demand for telecom knowledge workers and technicians in India, estimating the need for 150,000 new employees in 2009 alone (see links below).  They also revealed that there was tremendous shortage of such professionals, requiring the hiring of and training of recently graduated students.  Recognizing this trend much earlier, Pavithra Associates began evaluating potential partners and quickly realized that LIDO Telecommunications Essentials offered the most comprehensive learning system and services they could find.

“LIDO Telecommunications Essentials provides India and the entire Asia Pacific region with the knowledge needed to enhance the skills of our workers to be able to compete globally and better serve global clients”, stated Pavithra Ratnakar, CEO of Pavithra Associates.  “The benefit of this venture to our community and our country is that now we can provide learning on all levels, with excellent up-to-the minute information”.

The market for telecommunications and networking has significantly expanded in recent years, particularly in the aforementioned regions, increasing the need for just-in-time training and certifications for workers.  LIDO Telecom will help speed time-to-market for new telecommunications and networking services in by providing well-trained professionals and knowledgeable resources.
