Aptech Europe partners with AV

APTECH Europe, the computer education centre that Aptech Limited of India launched in Bratislava, clinched a partnership with Akadémia Vzdelávania (AV), the largest and the oldest lifelong learning organisation in Slovakia in March, Aptech Europe wrote on its website. By doing so Akadémia Vzdelávania has extended its training programmes by adding a two-year ACCP (Aptech Certified Computer Professional) course. ACCP’s graduates can continue their studies at City University of Seattle’s campus in Bratislava and obtain a bachelor's degree.

Partnering with AV is another step by Aptech Europe to increase the number of qualified IT workers in Slovakia.

Owen Fernandes, director of Aptech Europe, welcomed the partnership as a way to offer top education and increase the competitiveness of people in the labour market, both in Bratislava and in other parts of the country, as Akadémia Vzdelávania operates 36 educational centres across Slovakia.

“Our company has just the right programme to bridge the gap between the practical needs of the IT segment and what academia offers,” said Tomáš Božík, commercial director of Aptech Europe. “Study at Aptech is an entry step for further university education, either in the form of daily or distance education around the world.”

In addition to its centre in Bratislava, Aptech Europe also opened a second ICT centre in Košice this April.
