As a means to enhance the skill sets needed to develop the internet-of-things (IoT) segment in the country, the Telecom Sector Skill Council (TSSC), The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE), and India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA), are opening a skill center in Bengaluru. The trio has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to facilitate the same.
In the skill center, IoT-related vocational training courses will be provided. The trio will utilize their training partners to conduct approved courses, thereby providing employment prospects to the youth of the nation.
The MoU was signed between Lt Gen. (Retd) Dr. S. P. Kochhar, CEO, Telecom Sector Skill Council; Mr. Krishnamoorthy Krishnan, Chairman IESA; and Mr. Naganand Doraswamy, President of TiE.
“Telecom Sector Skill Council’s (TSSC) main aim for the next five years is to train approximately 8.67 million people which will be beneficial for the telecom industry’s growth. We are outreaching to rural areas also by Online and Offline courses through various Training centers,” said Lt Gen. (Retd) Dr. S. P. Kochhar.
“This industry-ready workforce is aligned to the latest modules for applications from a simple machine to the most complex of technological processes. With the increasing demand for skilled workforce and changing trends in telecom, in both industrial and in general day to day life, there is a huge requirement across sectors which needs to be addressed at the earliest,” he added.
India is currently on its path to implement its vision of Digital India. Its visions of Smart Cities, connected ecosystem, etc. are strongly linked to IoT solutions.
