ITI Training

The candidates who are enrolled in the Industrial Training Institute (ITI) courses have to undergo 1-year apprentice training. Only after they complete the apprenticeship programs, they can appear for the All India Trade Test (AITT). Subsequently, after clearing the exam, they are granted the National Trade Certificate (NTC).

There are several ITI disciplines that the aspirants can choose from. Then, the specific courses can be applied for. The eligibility norms for the different ITI trades vary; hence, the applicants are advised to apply only if they are eligible. The admission process of the ITI centers is managed by the National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT).

In the year 1950, the Craftsmen Scheme was implemented, under which the ITIs were instituted by the Directorate General of Employment & Training (DGET), Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, the Government of India. The objective of the ITI centers is to impart technical training to candidates who were looking for vocational training, and not continue with high school studies.

The duration of the ITI courses is 2 years, following which the pupils become eligible for the apprentice training. As per the courses that the students are pursuing, they can apply for the relevant apprentice programs. On the official website,, they have to fill in the required fields in the online ‘Registration form for Apprenticeship Training’ form and then, select the ‘Submit’ option. Thereafter, they are contacted for the apprentice programs as per their skills and expertise.

Upon completion of the apprentice training, the candidates are given ‘Certificate of Proficiency’ that serves as an experience certificate. Then, after completing the ITI courses, they are eligible to work in the ITI trades that they have gained expertise in.
