Free Computer Training Centres are run by Sevabharathi Tamilnadu in rural areas and slums. They focus on youngsters who are unable to pursue their higher studies or meet vocational training costs at professional institutes. These computer coaching centres equip them for better job opportunities. Each centre has between three and six computers. In a centre with six computers, around 70 students are trained daily across multiple shifts.
The students are taught the basics of computer operation and trained to work as computer operators in offices / shops or as data-entry operators. Professionally qualified instructors follow a standard syllabus to impart training to the students. Three-month (Word processing and Desktop Publishing) and six-month courses (Word Processing, Desktop Publishing and Computerised Accounting) are conducted. Formal course completion certificates are issued. Youngsters in the villages find these centres very useful.
