MediaCourses

DraftCraft provides the perfect platform for students of law, media, business, tourism and social work to supplement their formal education with integrated research, niche education, industry training and practical exposure.

DraftCraft formed DIRECT (DraftCraft Institute of Research, Education and Continuing Training) in 2001 and has since then, for over a decade and half, been training and generating niche expertise in pertinent sectors of law, media, business, tourism and social work. The students trained through DIRECT are swiftly absorbed by DraftCraft International and its knowledge partners on platforms across the world. Through a myriad multi-pronged approach, DIRECT offers Certificates Courses, Workshops, Talks, Lectures, Seminars, Symposiums, Round Table Conferences and Industrial Visits to members of the Public, fresh Graduates, Post-Graduates, Professionals even Industry Players.

DIRECT also holds courses across India for professionals ranging from Realty to Insurance; Medical professionals to Telecom Employees regularly to keep them abreast about the latest in law that affects them as an industry player and provide them updated lectures/workshops on legislations and precedent judgments that affect them directly even adversely. So, it could be a Workshop for a Cooperative Housing Society's Managing Committee members or Secretaries to help them function on a daily basis, within the ambit of the law or a Lecture Series for say Dentists on a High Court ruling that affects them directly.

There are educational institutes and professional institutes but there are no institutes that provide for Continuing Professional Training on issues that affect professionals or businesses, that is till it’s too late and an industry association may take up the issue to be addressed before its members. DraftCraft's DIRECT provides you niche and updated Research, Education and Training to empower you as a student, professional or entrepreneur, and well in time.
