Advanced Vocational Training Scheme (AVTS)

In order to upgrade and update the skills of serving industrial workers, the AVTS is in operation since 1977. The scheme was launched by erstwhile DGE&T, Ministry of Labour and (now Directorate General of Training (DGT), Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship) in collaboration with UNDP/ILO in 1977 at the then 6 Advanced Training Institutes (ATIs) under DGE&T and 16 ITIs of the 15 State Governments. Under the scheme, training in selected skill areas is being imparted through short-term modular courses of one to six weeks’ duration. Tailor-made courses suiting to the specific requirements of industrial establishments are also offered. Over 3.5 lakh industrial workers / technicians have made use of the training facilities at the NSTIs (erstwhile ATIs) since Sept, 2007. With financial assistance from World Bank, training facilities in additional areas were created at ATIs and the existing training facilities were also strengthened.

NSTI (Ramanthapuram) (erstwhile ATI-EPI) Hyderabad was established in 1974 with the assistance from the Swedish International Development Authority (SIDA), ILO and the second NSTI (erstwhile ATI-EPI) at Dehradun has been set up to cater to the training requirement of industries / organizations by offering both short and long term courses especially in the field of Electronic & Process Instrumentation.
