India Yamaha Motor, the Indian arm of Japanese two-wheeler maker, inaugurated its Yamaha Training School (YTS) at the premises of Don Bosco Yuva Kendra.
Yamaha and Don Bosco Yuva Kendra jointly aim to create a ‘Centre of Excellence’ where youngsters will receive two-wheeler technical training that will enable them to become expert two-wheeler technicians. Thereafter, they could be employed gainfully at Yamaha dealerships to offer productive contributions to the society. Technical experts from Yamaha are conducting the YTS program on behalf of the company.
“The existing skills gap in the industry can be reduced by imparting technical training to younger generations, as India is on its way to becoming an economic powerhouse. Yamaha as a brand catering to youngsters has addressed the matter with great responsibility,” said Masaki Asano, Managing Director, Yamaha Motor India Sales. “United in vision & aspirations with today’s young generation, Yamaha’s drive of transformation enabled by training young talents and providing placement assistance will empower them to be job-ready, living up to the expectation of Yamaha being a socially responsible company.”

“Yamaha is the first and only two-wheeler manufacturer to offer this unique course certified by the Government of India,” Ravinder Singh, Vice President, Strategy and Planning, Yamaha Motor India Sales. Yamaha said that it also plans to launch YTS across India to encourage the relatively indigent youngsters to master Yamaha technology and get employed at Company dealerships.
