NIIT, leading Global Talent Development Corporation and Asia’s largest IT trainer would be conducting the largest IT Aptitude Test, the 6th National IT Aptitude Test (NITAT) to enable students and graduates to calibrate their potential and aptitude for a career in the promising IT industry. ‘NITAT 2010’, will be simultaneously conducted by NIIT, in over 120 cities nationwide, on February 21.
Students desirous of checking their aptitude for IT can appear for NITAT 2010 by registering online on www.niiteducation.com/NITAT or by visiting the nearest NIIT centre.
NIIT’s pioneering initiative —NITAT— was introduced in 2004 to enable graduates and students pursuing their studies in engineering, arts, commerce and science streams to gauge their aptitude for a career in the IT sector, identify skills further required, if any, and thus systematically charter their career into the IT industry.
NITAT has been endorsed by IT Industry, IDC and the prominent technology partners of NIIT like Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, Adobe, EMC, Intel etc. Over the last 5 years NITAT has offered more than 1 lakh scholarships to IT aspirants in programmes offered by technology majors, to help initiate their careers in the IT industry.
NITAT has been designed as an objective type test of reasoning, comprehension, data interpretation skills and behavioural traits. Every student undergoing the test will receive a score-card with their interpretation, along with her/his nationwide and zonal ranking.
The assessment is expected to be of particular benefit to graduating students in deciding the careers that they should take up.
A list of ‘Promising IT Professionals of the Future’, including names of those with ‘Very High’ or ‘High IT Aptitude’ will be announced by NIIT and made available on www.niiteducation.com/NITAT.
This identified resource pool can be accessed by prospective employers including leading technology companies for their talent needs. NIIT will also award special recognition certificates to merit list candidates and encourage their pursuit of a career in IT.
Toppers will also be invited to a special ‘Placement Fair’ at key locations, across the country.
