With many multi national companies moving into India, RCDD qualification has opened doors to consultancy. It gives knowledge, database and lot of information on the industry. It has set standards. Today, in India we hardly have institutes offering technical education on this trend however the only one which is accessible is RCDD. RCDD qualification talks for itself and everyone are aware of the level of technical expertise that RCDD can extend to a person."
