Although, Aptech provides guidelines for recruitment, the ultimate selection is done by the centres based on their own assessment and requirements.

Our internal assessment systems are the best in the country which is testified by the large number of academic awards thay we have won consistently over so many years.

Although we cannot comment on the ability and quality of faculties all over Arena, our faculties are:

  • Recruited after rigorous testing and assessment.
  • Are required to have some industry experience
  • Undergo a comprehensive training program and are regularly assessed for performance by an external body
  • Are required to constantly upgrade their skills through continuous self development and organised trainings

All Arena Centres in India are owned by franchisees and there is no Main Centre of Arena.

Some centres are likely to mislead you into believing that they are the "Main Center" or the "Biggest Center" or the "Head Office" in order to attract your business.

You should beware of such centres and take an informed decision about your future.
