An excellent article giving valuable information regarding certificate or diploma courses in medical or pharma related field. Today the job position in our country is in a very very bad shape and one has to struggle to make a career line. In such a situation information regarding such obscure courses is definitely welcome.

Many students are nowadays biased and prejudiced with popular courses and feel that the lesser known career lines are useless. It is not so. Even the small courses sometimes have hidden potential and they provide a sustained job to someone willing to undertake it with due efforts.

These smaller but important career lines are everywhere. One can find such courses in financial, computer or other lines also.

So the students should consider all these less known courses also seriously as they are also a good career option.

Thanks to Mr. Umesh for reading this article. These courses and Diploma in Medical Records Management have excellent job prospects, provided the students have learned the basics well and they have completed the course from recognized institutes. The job prospects in these fields are not only good but also are increasing day by day.

However, I would also like to state that though the minimum eligibility condition for joining these courses is Xth standard, it would be better if the students join after completing X+II with Physics-Chemistry-Biology. X+II with PCB would help them to have a stronger grasp of the subjects taught in these Diploma courses.

The author has provided all the basic inputs relating to different diploma courses in the Paramedical segment. The details will equip the aspirants with a firm grasping in the stream they take up for strengthening their knowledge in the respective courses.
While the job market is proving to be very competitive where the ratio of absorption is declining gradually, these courses provide immense opportunities. Due to the growth in the demand for courses such as Dialysis technology, Operation-theatre assistant, Diploma in Audiology/ Speech-therapy etc the aspirants who are well versed and have some experience can earn a decent income.
However, it would be imperative that they should take up such courses after completion of class 12 only so that they would have better grasping of their science subjects, especially in Biology.

Very good article written by the author.

Actually these days people are more focused on their kids getting an engineering degree or want their kid to be a doctor or a CA but they forget that every kid cannot be a doctor or an engineer. We must check the potential of our kid also.

It is of no use to do common graduate courses like BA or BSc, as to get a job after doing these courses, is very bleak. Therefore it's better to do some professional course or a vocational course. After doing such courses, a job is almost guaranteed or one may even start his own business.

A useful write up from the author. Many students and their parents are not knowing the various specialised certificate and diploma courses which will give them a very good edge for getting selected to very good jobs and a prospective career.
One such certificate course is NDT. Non-destructive testing is the latest technology to examine the quality of a product without destroying the article. This technology will make the quality checking of 100% manufactured articles which can be used after this test. This technology is very useful for the defence industry where they want 100% reliability of the product. These certificate courses are being offered by BARC and there are some private organisations also. A 12th passed candidate can get the certificate and can get good jobs.
