AHMEDABAD: JBS Academy Pvt. Ltd., Ahmedabad’s premier institution for skill-training in Logistics has recently introduced three new courses, namely, Customs Custodian, International Business, and Central Excise, Service Tax & GST programme. In keeping with its policy of standard premier skill training and development in the sector, the courses have been introduced and duly “approved by The Gujarat Council for Vocational Training”, affiliated to the Directorate of Employment & Training, Government of Gujarat.

The launch of the additional courses is one among an array of educational and infrastructural facilities aimed at filling the sectoral gap in the demand and supply of human resource. The academy also plans to make deeper inroads into the integration of women into the workforce, with a provision for discount in tuition fees for female students. In addition, the institute also provides 100% placement assistance to students and, in the process, provides industry-ready candidates with hands-on training in the sector.

“According to a report by NSDC, marquee projects such as dedicated freight corridors, DMIC, JNPT Container Terminal and Inland Waterways are the ones that have seen a greater thrust. With the resurgence of manufacturing activities, emergence of organised retail, coupled with the upcoming GST, the next few years will witness a bigger boom for the industry. Through its queue of educational strategies and placement assistance, JBS seeks to bring about a change in this scenario in the best possible way,” said Mr. Samir J. Shah, Chief Mentor and Director, JBS Academy.

The institute-approved design of the course will enable professionals to upgrade industrial know-how as well as facilitate ideal training for undergraduate students. JBS Academy has an expert faculty, each individually ingrained with more than 20 years of experience in the domain. Each course will be conducted within 8 to 12 weeks of the semester, spread across a total of 120 hours.
