Azimuth, a specialist of online professional education and training, today announced the launch of its Health & Hygiene Course that is part of its new complete series of Life Skills Courses for school students through online and DVD mediums.
From the year 2009, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has emphasized the importance of Life Skill Based Education and has made it mandatory for CBSE schools to additionally certify its students based on Co-Scholastic activities in Life Skills, Social Skills, Emotional Skills, Visual and Performing Arts, Attitudes and Values. This certificate known as the 'Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation Certificate of School-Based Assessment' has been made mandatory for all students passing the CBSE Class X Examination.
After the launch of Health & Hygiene course, Azimuth will complete its series of Life Skills Courses with topics such as Exam Stress, Traffic Rules & Road Sense, Environment Friendliness, Teenage Crisis & Confusions, Religious & Class Tolerance, Problem Solving & Reasoning, Drive & Motivation.
