Electrician Training Centers

Electrician Training Centers

India is a vast and diverse country with tremendous disparity between different strata of the society.Very often poverty illiteracy, poor health, lack of economic development has a common root cause; limited or no access to energy. Amongst a population of 1.2 billion, 500 million people are deprived of electricity particularly as we move down the income levels. The rural population bears the brunt of it. Skilled labour is an absolute prerequisite for providing access to electricity but suitably trained electricians are scarce and the lack of proper electrician training has hindered the development and progress of India's youth.

Skill gaps in India:
  • Lack of market driven training programmes
  • Caters mainly to organized manufacturing sector (only 10% of the total workforce)
  • Not catering to sunrise industries and services sectors
  • Poor infrastructure / Lack of sufficient raw material, consumables for training
  • Lack of motivated & well qualified trainers
  • Entry barriers for school drop-outs

Hence Schneider Electric India Foundation developed a sustainable programme to bring safe and clean electricity to the people who need it most worldwide. To achieve this objective we sponsor the training of young people from the bottom of pyramid in electrical skills. After completion of the training, Schneider India Foundation assists the trainees to get employed.
