India’s Tech Mahindra Group will join hands with Idealabs to develop blockchain talent, according to Telangana Today.
The two firms will begin offering curated professional certification courses on blockchain, including live online classes and sessions with experts from the industry in the effort to boost the skills of both tech professionals and students.
The firms, which inked an agreement for the initiative on Monday, will also assist eligible candidates seeking employment opportunities, as reported by the newspaper.
The firms aim to provide hands-on experience and real-world implementation of distributed ledger technology, as well as to raise awareness around its use cases.
Courses will range from beginner through expert, offering extras such as industry interactions, expert sessions, innovation programs and insight into industry challenges.
This is not its first foray into blockchain. Tech Mahindra has already set up a blockchain accelerator called T-Block in partnership with the state government of Telangana. In 2018, the IT firm also inked a deal with Swedish startup ChromaWay to bring blockchain solutions to the Indian market.
