India’s Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) to launch a course on electric vehicles. This course will give training to youth in repairing, installing and assembling of electric vehicles (EVs).
Electric vehicle Tech course soon to launch in Vocational colleges
ITIs is set up by the government to teach the people the technical skills required to fulfill the demands for skilled workers.
Electric vehicle Tech course for Short duration
This course will be of short duration which will launch in 5-10 ITIs in next 4 months. The course will start in a few ITIs at the starting point as the government wants to first scale up in cities where manufacturers will launch their electric vehicles. Once the basic course is tested and a set of trainers made then the scaling will be easy, as per the government official.
Directorate General of Training (DGT) planning for the course
Directorate General of Training (DGT) planned this course under the guidance of the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), operates the ITIs.
Central Staff Training and Research Institute (CSTRI)
The designing of the course curriculum will be made by another MSDE body and Central Staff Training and Research Institute (CSTRI). They already started the work, discussing with the industry experts for the development of the course.
India lacks the skilled workforce in the EV segment
Currently, India lacks the skilled workforce in the electric vehicle (EV) segment. As the government targeted 30% EVs on roads in India, in order to achieve it, it is taking this step to fulfill the gap of skilled workers in the field.
With this launch, we hope that India will soon have enough skilled and professional electric vehicles employees that will fulfill the demands of the electric automotive industry in the country. This step also provides job opportunities for many youth and professionals in India.
