New Delhi: New Horizons India (, the joint venture between New Horizons Worldwide and Shriram Global Technologies, has announced that it has entered into a partnership with the US-based Security Certified Program () to provide certified security courses in India.

SCP is a two-level, vendor neutral security certification programme that enables individuals to acquire skills and get certified as a Security Certified Network Professional (Level 1) or a Security Certified Network Architect (Level 2). Level One certification is focused on the defense sector, while Level Two certification concentrates on communication and emerging security technologies like public key infrastructure (PKI), biometrics and smartcards.

To qualify for certification at each of these levels, students will need to pass at least two proficiency exams that will test their expertise and knowledge in the security domain. New Horizons will offer the students enrolling in its SCP, access to its proprietary integrated learning approach strategy, which will enable the students to access the course content via classroom learning (instructor-led), online live (the New Horizons virtual classroom) or online anytime (self-paced Web-based training).

Says New Horizons India president Ajay Sharma: "In today''s turbulent business environment, communication and security technologies are among the hottest growth areas in IT. We anticipate a lot of corporate interest in this certification programme and are confident that SCP''s proven track record in security certification combined with New Horizons'' training expertise will ensure a high level of satisfaction for all those participating in this programme."

Says Uday O Ali Pabrai, co-creator of SCP: "We are very excited that New Horizons has decided to offer SCP across its worldwide network of over 290 training centres to satisfy its needs for an information security program. New Horizons can not only deliver the SCP curriculum in most major markets around the globe, but they can also deliver the SCP programme in any modality the student requires."
