While the Government has put an impetus on skills training, a lot of work needs to be done to ensure India's young population is trained and skilled. As the infrastructure sector sees growth, the construction equipment will also pick up thus, generating employment for skilled manpower. According to experts, by 2020, the construction equipment industry will need an estimated one lakh trained operators and three lakh trained mechanics.
JCB India continues to play an instrumental part in training young people as operators, thus creating livelihood for many. JCB along with its dealer network has set up 12 fully functional Operational Training Centers across India (Ballabgarh, Chhindwara, Jamshedpur, Madurai, Patna, Kathmandu, Jalandhar, Pune, Raipur, Silchar, Kendrapara and Kharagpur) and have trained over 20,000 young men as operators till date.
The course developed by JCB India is primarily customized for the trainees according to their requirements. The course module is simple in nature; it includes class room training on machine operation & maintenance, features etc. along with practical hands-on training. Apart from focusing on the quality and productivity aspects, the trainer also emphasizes on the safety aspect of operating the machine.
