Through Facebook course track, e-Rozgaar is educating trainees by sharing tools, knowledge, tutorials and basic skills which eventually help them to become expert developers. Facebook provides free vouchers to Master Trainers to become Blueprint certified. On clearing the learning path, candidates receive Facebook certification apart from the certification received from e-Rozgaar Program.
Other than Facebook course track, Facebook Developer Circles and PITB have come together since the beginning of January 2018 with the objective to ‘educate, enable and empower’ local communities for developers (Web/App/Gaming/Robotics). The developer circles have been established under the supervision of Chief Minister’s e-Rozgaar Program in three cities (Gujrat, Sahiwal and Faisalabad) and expected to expand to three more in future. The three local communities conducted periodic (monthly) meetups at designated meet up centers (Gujrat, Sahiwal & Faisalabad). e-Rozgaar has also partnered up with CrossOver to produce high end freelancers and get jobs at their portal.
