Skills training program for construction workers across the country has been started by realty developers body, Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India (CREDAI) in line with the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY).
CREDAI is taking this initiative across the country through its member developers spread across 24 states and 156 city chapters, the association said in a release. Under this program, CREDAI will initiate pilot projects through its training partner- Rustomjee Academy for Global Career (RAGC) and conduct skill development training of 180 construction workers in Mumbai & Mumbai Metropolitan Region at various on-going project-sites of Dosti Realty, Mantri Realty and Keystone Realtors. The training programme will be taken to other developers soon, CREDAI said.
The training program will impart ‘On-site and Classroom training’ to the construction workers that will help in developing technical skilling and safety. The candidates who will successfully complete and pass the training program will be certified and rewarded by the government.
PMKVY is the flagship scheme for skill training of youth, implemented by the new Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship(MSDE) through the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC). The objective of this skill certification and reward scheme is to enable and mobilize a large number of Indian youth to take up skill training and become employable and earn their livelihood.
CREDAI’s skill training initiative in Pune known as KUSHAL marks the success of the foundation of the programme with over 28,000 workers already trained and certified.
