ADVANCED VOCATIONAL TRAINING

In order to upgrade and update the skills of serving industrial workers, an Advanced Vocational Training Scheme (AVTS) has been in operation since 1977. The scheme was taken up by DGE&T, Ministry of Labour in collaboration with UNDP/ILO in 1977 at 6 Advanced Training Institutes (ATIs) under DGE&T and 16 Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) of 15 State Governments.

OBJECTIVE OF THE SCHEME

  • To upgrade and update the skills of the serving industrial workers to specialise in their field of work.

Under the scheme, training in selected skill areas is being imparted through short-term modular courses of one to six weeks' duration. Tailor-made courses suiting to the specific requirements of industrial establishments are also offered.

  • Advanced skill training courses offered in 6 ATIs have been given in Table -V
  • Over 1,00,000 industrial workers/technicians have made use of the training facilities at 6 ATIs under DGE&T.

To meet the growing demand of industry, advanced skill training facilities were extended to 30 I.T.Is of various State Governments/ UTs under the Vocational Training Project taken up with financial assistance from World Bank during the period 1989-98. Under this project, training facilities in additional areas were created at 6 ATIs and the existing training facilities were also strengthened.

NC/CNC Training Centres have been established in 3 ATIs at Chennai, Mumbai and Kanpur with UNDP/ILO assistance to meet the growing need of trained workers in Hi-Tech areas. Training courses for operators, programmers and technicians on NC/CNC Machines are being conducted at these Centers.

 ADVANCED TRAINING IN ELECTRONICS AND PROCESS INSTRUMENTATION

Advanced Training courses in Electronics and Process Instrumentation are being organised in the Advanced Training Institutes for Electronics and Process Instrumentation (ATI-EPI) established at Hyderabad and Dehradun.

 ATI-EPI at Hyderabad was established in 1974 with assistance from the Swedish International Development Authority (SIDA), ILO being the executing agency with the following objectives:

  • to train skilled personnel at technician level in the fields of Industrial, Medical, Consumer Electronics, Information Technology and Process Instrumentation by organising short term and long term courses according to the needs of the industry.
  • to offer training for Instructors of ATIs, ITIs and other training institutes in the specialized fields of Electronics and Process Instrumentation.

    Training activities of this Institute are now grouped under five major wings:

  1. Consumer Electronics Wing - provides training in the disciplines of Audio, Radio, Colour TV, CCTV, Digital Camera, Cordless Phones, Cell Phones and Cable TV equipment.
  2. Industrial Electronics Wing - provides training in the disciplines of Power Electronics, Digital & Linear ICs, Microprocessors, Micro Controller and PLCs.
  3. Information Technology Wing - provides training in Computer Hardware, Software and Networking.
  4. Medical Electronics Wing  - provides training in all aspects of sophisticated Modern Medical Electronic equipment.
  5. Process Instrumentation  Wing - provides training in Industrial Sensors, Process Control, Microprocessors and   PLCs in the Process Industries. 

The second ATI-EPI at Dehradun (U.P) was set up in 1981 to cater the needs of the industries and other organisations of the Northern Region in the fields of Consumer Electronics, Industrial Electronics, Medical Electronics and Process Instrumentation. The Institute offers short-term, long-term courses and tailor made courses on Consumer Electronics and Industrial Electronics. 

A total of 2296 short-term and long-term courses were conducted in two Institutes since inception and 24,996 participants were trained.
