How ITI can help shape your career after +2
The Industrial Training Institutes, or ITIs, have been constituted by the Government of India, and come under the purview of the Ministry of Labour. Graduating from an ITI is very cost effective, which makes them the ideal option for a huge part of the Indian population. As the minimum requirements for education qualification is also not very high, people who have an interest in acquiring technical knowledge can easily join the institutes.
The duration of courses offered by ITI
When you join ITI, the duration of your course would depend on the trade that you have selected. The courses generally vary from one to three years and to get the NCVT (National Council of Vocational Training) certificate, aspirants have to do practical training in their industry or trade for a year or two.
Advantages of a course from ITI and the NCVT certificate
The NCVT certificate that you get from the ITIs has global recognition, so aspirants who have successfully received the certificate can apply for both national as well as international positions. At ITIs, the major emphasis is placed on practical training, which gives graduates from ITIs an upper hand when it comes to experience.
ITIs help prepare technical manpower for the industries and service sectors. While industrial trade jobs have their spread mostly in the unorganized sectors, they still constitute a big proportion of the job market in India.
With an ITI course, you have several options that range from traditional technical jobs like machinist or electrician to jobs in the service sector, like retail management or hospital management. You could also participate in job recruitment drives at IFFCO or other companies.
After the ITI course is over
One of your options is to start applying for jobs. Check out IFFCOYuva for job vacancies in your industry. Or, you can go further! After you have completed the practical training period, you are eligible to appear for the AITT (All India Trade Test). After you clear this exam, you will be awarded a National Trade Certificate (NTC) in your trade by the NCVT. It is always a good idea to opt for practical training for a year or two after ITI. You can start looking for jobs at IFFCOYuva to gain that experience.
Career Opportunities after ITI
After ITI, candidates will have academic as well as job oriented prospects to move forth with. After ITI, you can go for specialized short term courses that are offered at the Advanced Training Institute (ATI), or can choose courses that are designed for the aspirants who wish to get a job at some foreign location. Applying for higher studies, like a diploma in engineering is another option, after which you can start applying for jobs for engineers at the IFFCOYuva job portal. There are a lot of job opportunities for ITI graduates in engineering and non-engineering trades; with central/state government organisations like the Indian Army, Navy, and Air Force; and even in the private sector. Then, you also have the option to start ventures and businesses as well.
After +2, joining an ITI lets a candidate explore their skills and offers plenty of opportunities to build their career in.
