It is a known fact that a large no of students are emerging from private institutions after learning the IT engineering subjects, without obtaining the authorized certification in this field. Several job seeking youths are denying the jobs in Automation & Network Engineering field due to non availability of a recognized professional certification. The unhappy truth is that, the working people in this field even though they possess excellent competency are not able to occupy higher positions in their career only because of they lack an authentic and credible certification. If KELTRON consider this with adequate seriousness many those who are stumbled on their way to higher positions will be able to go forth.
The skill level and educational attainment of the workforce determines the productivity as well as the ability to adapt to the changing industrial environment. A majority of Indian workforce does not possess marketable skills which is an impediment in getting decent employment and improving their economic condition. While India has large young population, only 5% of the Indian labour force in the age group of 20-24 years has obtained vocational skills through formal means whereas the percentage in industrialized countries varies between 60% and 96%.
The educational entry requirements and long duration of courses of the formal training system are some of the impediments for a person of low educational attainment to acquire skills for his livelihood.
The main objective of the scheme is to provide employable skills to existing workers, ITI graduates, etc. Existing skills of the persons can also be tested and certified under this scheme.
In order to address the unemployable youth in KERALA, it is suggested that we may consider of conducting professional trade test in Network Engineering and Automation field at KELTRON REC by charging an affordable exam fee, as per the norms of KELTRON.
The working people and students those who possess these certificates can enjoy better positions in their career with out any discrimination. Since KELTRON is the most reputed and accepted industrial organization in India , the acceptance of the above suggestion will be extremely helpful for job seeking youths in INDIA .
