Commenting on this initiative, AISECT’s Director Mr. Siddharth Chaturvedi said, “We are witnessing a rapid expansion in the service sector of the state’s economy for which trained workforce is required in the retail trade and information technology. AISECT is concentrating on imparting the right type of trade-specific training to the jobless youth. Moreover, we have always taken into consideration the geographical scenario while choosing training location so that the scheme benefit pours down to the actual target beneficiary. Our aim to provide quality training has been a major reason for AISECT to focus on 5 districts and to take a target of training only 4500 candidates in the first year.” Depending on the results of the training and interest of the candidates to get trained from AISECT centre, the training targets will be revised after one year.
