Given our strong presence in the online segment, we believe the current scenario presents EdServ with a great opportunity to tap into the brick and mortar model of academic support services as well.
The aim of opening up EdServ Training Institutes on a national scale including in towns and rural centers is to bridge this gap and offer aspiring students an exhaustive exam support as well as Job Oriented skills support services. Through this expansion, we are confident of achieving leadership position in both the academic support and vocational training services in the future.
