Don't enroll in this course.It is rubbish course that have no market value and you can waste ur valuable 2 years in vain. They are just exploit u and they are not guranteed any type of job assurance nor intiative.
The only talk about themselves and US collaboration all things but ultimately when they came on the point of recruitment they are not taking any intiative even in their scope. It is not even the desirable qualification in the recruitment of Curator the post that requires this course.

So if you have no scope then you will join, Otherwise it is better to stick with any job that suits your qualification because you get there experience certificate ..

SO if u want to waste u r time then join this course
