Now skilled manpower has got a huge demand in Middle Eastern country and in Europe USA, CANADA and AUSTRALIA. Presently it is found that certified skilled technician on many field like construction, rod binding, house wiring, electrical and plumbing has got huge demand in outside world. To meet up this requirement and supply trained and acceptable certified technical and other skilled professional we have designed our courses and set up this technical training institute. Thus, the objectives set up for the courses are as under:
1. To provide institution based technical training in different employable trades.
2. To conduct formal, informal and special training.
3.To conduct trade test for Overseas Employment.
This institute strives to pursuit the development for the skill for employment initiative. Our employment initiative aims to support and build to produce technically skilled person and a stronger economy. A skilled workforce will strengthen the foundation of community’s social stability as well as improve the businesses and industry sectors. Foreign employee need approved certification for the skilled person. So we intent to train them (potential student) for 6 months long technical courses (as per present course curriculum) and they can get the certificate from Bangladesh Technical Education Board (BTEB) which is officially recognized by Bangladesh Government. This will help the student for international employment.
This institution provides professional approach in selecting manpower in order to ensure development of human resources at its best. It is a full-fledged training institute. It will provide various training to develop the skills and language proficiency. The institute will also cater training according to specific requirement of employer upon special request. All trade training activities will divide into practical and theory classes. Trainee’s daily and weekly performances are recorded and maintained in a comprehensive database and their performances are informed to the individual time to time. Trainees will undergo a series of lectures to ensure that it provides a solid theoretical foundation in the skills that they are being trained in. Once the basics will be covered then it’s on to the intensive practical sessions whereby they will be guided and supervised by their instructors and supervisors. Most of the instructors and supervisors have had several years of working experience in their own field. To further enhance the training, simulated assessments for both the theoretical aspects and practical exercises will be conducted for our trainees to ensure maximum readiness for any tests.
