I am agreeing with this statement. Because in bank manual work is ended and in all banks computer are used. So for getting job in banks a job seeker should pass computer certificate.

You have said that "Computer Awareness and Office Automation Course would cost around Rs.1000 - Rs.3000 depending upon the city & center.Since the course teaches basics of computers,the duration would be maximum for 3 weeks" - Can You please exactly name one Standardized Course from a Reputed Institution which covers what you have said? I'm unable to find any course in any Institution which can be done in 3 weeks within Rs. 3000 so please name at least one such course. I will be very grateful.

Office automation course is provided in most centres,that covers MSOffice & Internet.Price of the course is just an estimate & it may differ.

Abhi said...

Itz a 3 months course but has an option 2 do it extensively in 10 days only. Course fee including exam fee varies btw Rs. 1600-2600 depending upon the Center chosen.
