The Government is now focusing and emphasizing on the mission of skilling the nation during next five years. This will create a limitless demand for personnel who are capable of performing the job of a trainer. The attributes of a good trainer are not limited to his knowledge and prowess, but need to be supplemented with adequate field training in his/her trade to enable him to impart skills, which are a combination of knowledge, thinking and doing.
Construction Industry Development Council (CIDC), the apex organization established by the Planning Commission, Government of India and Construction Industry, the largest human resource development institution, invites applications from experienced and interested individuals to function as CIDC Accredited Trainers/Assessors to train / assess trade trainees in construction sector in various construction trades.
With the current Government focus on inclusive growth of the economy, the infrastructure and Construction sector is poised for growth, and will thus fuel the demand for skilled workers. The availability of certified skilled workers would thus greatly reduce the shortage currently being experienced in this industry. Major government agencies like the CPWD and MES who are involved in Construction have mandated that 20% of the work-force employed by their Contractors must be certified skilled workers. They have also included this clause in their tender documents. The industry is also becoming more and more aware of the need for certified workers.
Need for Certification
The Construction Industry traditionally has been employing workers who gained their skills through work and experience but without any kind of formal training. CIDC has endeavored to correct this through the process of formal training and certification at its training centres located pan India. The Council also has a process in place where workers who have gained their skills through the traditional and non-formal process are assessed and certified. The certification eliminates the subjectivity involved in the process of selection of workers and also enables the worker to negotiate for a better wage for his work. The formal process of training and certification helps workers improve their productivity whilst reducing wastage.
Capacity Building Programme
The capacity building programme for trainers is a short term modular residential programme. The programme is of 7 - 90 days depending on qualifications and experience. This aims to equip the trainer with the skills necessary for the delivery of content to the trainees. The programme is designed to cover the general aspects of training like class/ student management, teaching & assessing, soft skills/ personality development, center management, counseling and intake processes, extracurricular activities, post training management, need for practicals, planning of practicals, use of audio/video support during content delivery etc. It also contains trade specific modules that explain the basics and also expose the trainer to the latest equipment’s available and used for the trade. It also guides the trainer on methods which can be used to continually upgrade his/her knowledge and skills to stay abreast of the latest developments in this trade. It also has a module on the soft skills required for trainee management.
The Assessors would be persons with extensive field experience of not less than 15 years, and would primarily be assigned the task of assessing skilled workers who are desirous of acquiring CIDC certification. The parameters to be tested are their prowess to ensure verification of relevant knowledge linked to safety, quality, productivity, work practices, tools, and knowledge of materials, reading and writing, linear measurements, unit conversion, area/volume, calculation, and psychometrics of the assessed individuals. They will need to be physically fit and willing to travel to various locations if so required.
The role of the trainer would be to provide supplemental training to skilled workers who participate in various skill up-gradation programmes conducted by CIDC. The trainers would inculcate the knowledge of safety, quality, productivity, work practices, tools, knowledge of materials, reading and writing, linear measurements, unit conversion, area/volume, calculation, and psychometrics These programmes can be conducted at CIDC centres or at various construction sites as “on Site” programmes.
