Enhanced ITI training for the underprivileged

Cognizant Foundation (CF) has supported Ramakrishna Mission Vidyalaya (RMV), in Coimbatore with the state-of-art infrastructure to run their vocational training programme.

The Industrial Training Institute of RMV started in 1951 has completed more than 65 years of useful service to the student community. The center offers training in various trades like Fitter, Welder, Machinist, Electrician, Electronics and others. The ITI has students from across India, hailing from the lower middle class and poor rural families. 296 students use the welding workshop facility.

CF extended support for RMV to procure and install a Welding Simulator, which helps the Institute to save 70% of the consumables cost and at the same time deliver a better quality of skill training due to superior live guidance and post weld-analysis features. The Welder trade infrastructure in the ITI is also shared with the Polytechnic College run by RMV.
