The course was specifically designed by UWAS IT circle to suit stringent prison requirements & was finally approved by Prisons on July 2015.
Conducted Quarterly at 2 sessions each time, the current class attendance averages about 15 to 20 inmates. Inmates receive almost 1:1 attention, as most of them are unfamiliar or out of touch with computers.
UWAS has received positive testimonials and encouraging feedback from inmates on this programme.
