Electric Vehicle Tech Courses: India’s Vocational Colleges’ New Move

Electric Vehicle Tech Courses: India’s Vocational Colleges’ New Move

A new course on electric vehicles will soon be launched by India’s Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs). This new move is initiated to train youths to repair, install and assemble EVs (Electric Vehicles). The government has set up ITI to train citizens and provide them with essential technical skills so that they can use that in the Industry to fulfill the government demand. Also, this is an opportunity for the government to identify skilled individuals from the rest. Around 5 to 10 ITI will have this short term course and that will be happening in the next four months. The reason for having a handful of ITI is because the decision makers feel that other regions and companies should first implement electric vehicle manufacturing. But since this is just a trial, they want to see how this course goes and how people react and learn it.

The operators of ITI - Directorate General of Training (DGT) under the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) are currently taking the initiative of this course. Also, the Central Staff Training and Research Institute (CSTRI) is said to take on the course curriculum along with the experts in the industry. This will surely boost the chances of India having more electric vehicles according to experts in the industry.
