Answer: RCSM’s brand in itself gives an all-India identity and that is why even as lakhs of students have got jobs after acquiring training and certification from RCSM in the last 13 years, not a single individual, institution, company or government body has ever raised any question on the credibility of RCSM’s certification. But still, some people may ask, what is the validity and sanction of RCSM certification? The answer is very transparent and subject to verification by anyone. In the field of education, the University Grants Commission (UGC) is the only authorized body to extend recognition. In the field of technical education, All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) is the authorized body. But neither UGC nor AICTE has extended its recognition to any computer education group, even to the top brand names in the IT Education groups. Even the top players in the segment run their own certification and are recognized not only in India but the world over. RCSM’s certification also has the same mandate and sanction all over the globe.
