Faculty Members / Trainers

Faculty Members & Trainers

Teachers, I believe, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts influence the future of the earth.

“One man army” can work sometimes and in some cases, but it may not win always.

RACE is not such a kind to rely on one person but an army of men who lead to success.

Ex-Senior Officer from RBI, NABARD and other leading banks, IIM & Anna University alumnus and other stalwarts with more than 35 years experience in their field of expertise are taking classes in our institution.

We also have a team of Mentors who have significant knowledge in respective fields to guide our students throughout their journey, develop our materials and support practice programs.

“Mentors work is to guide you and make you practice”

On joining the “RACE” you get assigned to a MENTOR exclusively for assessing and guiding your activities, skills, ambitions, strengths and weaknesses, punctuality and analyzing your scores in tests and the like for a full-fledged assessment of your competence and readiness.
