Quality of guidance, sincerity in efforts and innovation in pedagogy are our core values. We strive hard to integrate these values in our packet of offerings to the student community, something that is clearly visible in our initiatives like ILP, AIPTS, C2C, TLP, DNA and so on. As a result of the success of these flagship initiatives, we started getting requests from many aspirants to move into the offline domain with similar quality, sincerity and innovation. In our effort to meet these demands, we came up with the offline classroom programme.
