One stop to learn and succeed

With a clear motto to upgrade the skills of students from high school goers to professionals, Compaq learning started its tutoring journey in 2013. But within two years, an effort by three IT professionals that started as a blog went on to become one of the largest course developing company in the e learning industry.

We kick started our stint in the e-learning world by mentoring high school students. The passion for teaching and mentoring students gave us the confidence and courage to plunge into the e learning industry and provide various guidance for high school students to IT professionals. Until now we have trained around 15,000 students in various subjects ranging from simple mathematics to android app development. We have a group of fine instructional designers, graphic designers and SMEs who ensure that our products are original and valuable.
