CSDC targets to train 3 lakh workers by next year

Construction Skills Development Council (CSDC) of India has set a target to train around three lakh workers over next year.  The CSDC – one of 18 sector skill councils approved by the National Skill Development Corporation till date – would focus on the manpower requirements of the real estate sector, and infrastructure arena, utilities like power and irrigation, urban infrastructure, and transportation.
CSDC develops the skills for the construction sector across trades of mason, bar bender and fixer, scaffolder, carpenter, laboratory technician and assistant laboratory technician. “The objective of CSDC is to create national occupational standards for trainers and assessors. The Council will set up training standards and facilitate training institutes across the nation,” said Ajit Gulabchand, Chairman of the CSDCI.
Every year the programme would scale-up adding new skills, ultimately taking to about 500 odd skills expected to be developed in the construction sector.
S Ramadorai, Chairman of National Skill Development Corporation said, “Industry needs to take a lead so that right people are deployed, certain people are skilled every year and workers attain the national occupational standards as prescribed by the CSDCI.”   
CSDC would work jointly with large private companies and institutions to devise industry-based curriculum, set training standards, offer good quality vocational training, and provide industry-endorsed certification.
