GreyCampus: Keeping Professionals Competent through Certification

Vijay Pasupulati,  CEOOnline learning platforms have revolutionized the education sector and over 41.7 percent of global Fortune 500 companies now use some form of educational technology to instruct employees during formal learning hours and that figure is only going to steadily increase in future years. However, making a strong foothold for a training institute in this sector is much complex than how it looks from outside. Vijay Pasupulati, CEO of Grey Campus, a provider of online and offline certification training for working professionals, says, "Certification training is a largely fragmented market globally with individual trainers running businesses locally. Our early challenge was to understand the local training needs and establish a scalable model to address these needs effectively." He boasts that they have over 1200 students currently enrolling every month for their training programs.

By developing a robust digital marketing and sales engine accompanied by a strong technology-driven training framework, GreyCampus is an exemplar of achievers in online certification training providers.
In less than 2 years since the establishment, the institute has trained more than 10,000 professionals and delivered more than 25,000 hours of instructor-led classes by offering instructor-led training and online self-learning in the areas of Project Management, Service Management, Quality Management and in-demand technology areas like Big Data and Data Science, which are short-term in nature with specific outcomes geared to provide a career boost.

"For a professional, obtaining a certification like PMP gives them immediate recognition and access to several jobs. As per PMI's Global Salary Survey for Project Managers, PMP Credential holders earn up to 25 percentage more than non-credentialed Project Managers," explains Pasupulati. The institute has collaborated with top global certification bodies like Project Management Institute (PMI), AXELOS and PEOPLECERT whereby their course content is reviewed and accredited by these bodies and credits provided by GreyCampus are automatically recognized by them. As there are various projects that
mandatorily require a certified project manager to lead and coordinate the work, the world over certified project managers are in great demand in various industries ranging from Information Technology, Financial Services to Oil, Energy and Infrastructure and the cost-effective trainings provided by GreyCampus through online self-learning and Instructor-led platforms can make great impact in a working professional's career.

Apart from trainings for individuals, Grey Campus offers several options to address mass training requirements in organizations including on-site instructor-led training, live-online instructor-led training and online self-learning. In addition, they offer custom training options where curriculum could be tailored for specific company needs. "For companies that see ongoing certification as a continuous need for their employees, we even have options where we deploy a custom cloud-based e-learning solution for that company," says Pasupulati.

Today, with over 500 expert trainers who possess 15 years of professional work experience in addition to being certified themselves, the institute is uniquely positioned where they are already providing three flexible modes of training instructor-led online, instructor-led classroom and online self-learning. "We aim to attain revenues of $30 million, train 100,000 students and offer a portfolio of 100 courses within 3 years," concludes Pasupulati with immense confidence.
