Su-Kam Power will provide technology support for a solar electrical training programme offered by the Rural Electrification Corporation, a Government of India enterprise.
The training will be conducted at engineering and ITI colleges for students belonging to economically backward regions of the country, in addition to their curriculum. The program will be rolled out in a phased manner in other colleges in the country with the first step being taken at DAV college, Mahindergarh, a statement from the company said.
“In line with a significant component of the 12th Five Year Plan which emphasises on generation and absorption of trained manpower in various areas, the Rural Electrification Corporation, a Government of India enterprise, has initiated a solar electrical training programme as part of their corporate social responsibility,” the statement said.
The programme spanning from August 2013 to December 2013 is being implemented by Advit Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation based in Gurgaon, with Su-Kam Power Systems providing technology support.
This programme is being initiated in order to meet the demand for trained manpower in the aggressively growing Indian solar market. It will span over a period of five months and is expected to churn out 200 qualified engineers and technicians who are well versed with the technicalities as well as the economics of solar photovoltaic power systems.
During the course of the training, candidates will undergo classroom training as well as hands-on solar workshops. The sessions will be designed and conducted by professionals working in the solar industry. The equipment and devices for hands-on training have been sponsored by Su-Kam Power Systems Limited.
