[RxPG] Bangalore, March 13 - India's leading IT trainer NIIT has tied up with Sun Microsystems India Ltd to offer specialised training to students and software professionals in the open source computing through Sun Solaris training programme.

The partnership will enable NIIT to access the latest Sun technologies, tools, technical resources and curricula on Java and XML and Solaris operating system administration.

Sun will help NIIT to set up Solaris labs in Delhi and Mumbai initially and extend the facility to 50 centres, including tier-2 cities across the country.

'The initiative will provide academic developers with the tools and resources required to impart specialised IT skills. As part of our Network Labs curriculum, we will offer training and certification on Solaris 10 operating system to prospective students,' NIIT CEO Vijay K. Thadani told reporters here Tuesday.

The five-day 40-hour course will train students, working engineers, Sun partners and customers to take up high-end jobs in verticals such as infrastructure management services, package implementation and application, development and maintenance -.

The fee for the course will range between Rs.10,000 and Rs.25,000 with students charged lower and professionals from enterprises at the higher end.

'Our partnership with Sun is in line with our efforts to provide the best training programmes for students and the industry,' Thadani pointed out.

Nasscom, the body representing Indian software and services firms, has projected that the IT industry will be employing about two million professionals by 2010, with over 300,000 being hired every year.

Verticals like infrastructure management services alone will require 25,000 specialists in a year in view of the increasing demand for such services in the outsourcing business.

'The programme will equip students with required skills and employability. The global IT industry will have access to a pool of trained manpower on emerging technologies, including open source computing,' Thadani said.

Sun vice-president Karie Wilyerd said the company's game plan was to empower academic developers through sharing, collaboration and open innovation.

'The partnership will allow students to help each other, gain hands-on experience with leading-edge, open source technologies and prepare for the next age in the education process,' Wilyerd said.

NIIT will also leverage its strengths in instructional design and delivery capabilities to offer these hi-end programmes.
