Advanced Diploma (Vocational) in Automotive Technology
Introduction: The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship is an apex organization for the
development and coordination of the vocational training in our country. The Ministry conducts the vocational training programmes through the Craftsmen Training Scheme (CTS), Apprenticeship Training Scheme (ATS), under the Skill Development Initiative (SDI) Scheme, and Craftsmen Instructor Training Scheme (CITS) to cater the needs of different segments of the Labour market. The Directorate General of Training (DGT) acts as a central agency to advise Government of India in framing the training policy and coordinating vocational training throughout India. The day-today administration of the ITIs rests with the State Governments/ Union Territories.
Skill Diploma Initiative:
In addition to that, the Ministry has planned to start Skill Diploma courses to cater the need of demand raised on a comprehensive workforce requirement, under DGT gamut. The proposed skill diploma holders will be trained more on practical competencies (70% Practical & 30% Theory) rather than more of theoretical knowledge offered in polytechnic/Diploma colleges.
Industry Advantage:
The Ministry of skill Development & Entrepreneurship will provide a pool of automotive engineering technician personnel at shop floor supervisor cum worker level, trained to international bench mark for industry. This will also enable industry to take challenges in the Fabrication product development and manufacturing.
Career for Automotive Engineering Professionals:
The Advanced Diploma (Vocational) offers opportunity for upward career progression for the DGT-NTC certificate holders. There is enormous scope to obtain national and overseas appointment for Advanced Diploma (Vocational) holders starting from the ground level to Automobile engineer.
