As part of this partnership, AVPL International will also upgrade 50 existing training facilities into Global Skills and Incubation Hubs (GISH) across 12 Indian States. These hubs will offer certificate courses from prestigious institutions like the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) in collaboration with the NSDC Academy.

We are especially thankful to Mr. Ved Mani Tiwari, CEO of NSDC, for his mentorship and guidance in this initiative. Our goal is to create a robust ecosystem for training in these sectors that aligns with international standards.”

The comprehensive training programs will cover cutting-edge fields such as drone technology, the Internet of Things (IoT), agriculture, and allied sectors. The initiative aims to train 140,000 candidates annually, providing them with IIT-certified courses and internationally recognized accreditations.

The agreement was formalized by Shri Ved Mani Tiwari, CEO of NSDC, and Mr. Deep Sihag Sisai, Founder and Managing Director of AVPL International. Both leaders emphasized their commitment to enhancing the leadership skills and employability of the Indian workforce on a global scale.
