    Our Training Methodology

    The lectures for each module are divided into conceptual understanding and practical implementation. Conceptual understanding focuses on the theoretical aspect of the course curriculum for which faculty led LIVE online training will be conducted. These LIVE online training sessions are the pre-requisite for attending the lab based physical classroom training, which will cover the practical application of the concepts. Therefore, the hands-on experiential classroom training will focus on the real life scenario based projects, case studies using accounting software and other tools used in Industry.

    This unique teaching methodology lets students experience real life challenges and situations, getting them to apply the concepts learnt in the class, and preparing them for actual work situations. After successful completion of the program, students will be confident to apply for multiple roles in the field of Accounting and Taxation.

    With a deep intent to ensure what our students learn is complete and comprehensive, only at EduPristine, we use the fully featured version of the TallyPrime software. Other training institutions do not teach Tally or may use a version of Tally that is unlicensed or the one that comes with limited features. It is crucial to understand that what we learn is directly applicable to us in real life, and isn’t it also about being prepared for the big world of employment awaiting us?

    Just imagine learning how to drive a car on a simulator and being made to sit on a real car’s driver seat for a test. How difficult would it be? How can one expect to pass the driving test without learning how to drive a real car? The same is the case with using an unlicensed or a limited version of Tally over a licensed, fully featured version of TallyPrime. We always have a choice, so choose wisely! Good wishes on your way to becoming a successful professional. All the best, and happy learning!

    Strengthen your conceptual understanding through an easy-to-use LIVE video conferencing platform which allows for two way interaction. Study from Anywhere using any device (Mobile phone, Tablet, Laptop, Desktop)
