New Delhi: Vijay Mallya-led Kingfisher Training Academy plans to set up 25 centres by 2010 in the country, a company official said Tuesday.
“We plan to set up 25 centres nationally by 2010. We may be able to do that even earlier than 2010. In the next two months itself we will set up 12 centres,” Executive Vice- President Kingfisher Airlines Rajesh Verma told reporters here.
He, however, did not mention the amount of money that would be spent on setting up these centres.
The academy, which already has a centre in Mumbai, would have centres in the non-metros as well.
“Our centre in Chandigarh would be ready by April end,” Verma said, adding that the academy plans to train 6,000-8,000 students across centres in the current fiscal.
The academy would provide training in the field of aviation as well as the hospitality sector.
Besides, it is also targeting corporates to outsource its management training programmes.
The academy has also tied up with banks to provide education loans to students at attractive rates.
Kingfisher Airlines itself plans to hire about 4,000 professionals in the next one year.
