FAQ

Only a gradulation/post-graduation. No need to have any prior knowledge on telecom as we start from scratch!

Yes of course! You have to put appropriate hardwork but its definitely possible. A Human can achieve any position with knowledge.

If you believe you have got the perfect understanding on LTE Protocol stacks with specification level knowledge you can directly go through only practical part!

We do provide pratical training also but one will be paying the complete training cost to go though only practical part also.

Yes, we will be able to arrage a meeting/call with our expert trainers to sort out all your career related queries. You just have to contact us!
