Apparel training centre in Odisha obtains ISO certification
Nov '11
Vikash Training Centre, an apparel training centre in Hinjilicut Block of Ganjam district in east Indian State of Odisha (earlier Orissa), has obtained ISO 9001:2008 certification from the International Organisation for Standardisation.

The centre has been set up by IL&FS Cluster Development Initiative Limited, while drawing support from Ministry of Rural Development and State Employment Mission. It has been leading the way for employment linked training programme since July 2008.

Drawing support from the State Employment Mission, IL&FS Clusters have trained and provided placement to more than 7,000 rural below poverty line (BPL) youth through its seven training centres in the State.

Vikash Training Centre has by now trained more than 2000 BPL youth from Malkangiri and Ganjam clusters and provided them placement with big garment manufacturing export houses like Arvind Limited and Shahi Exports in Bangalore, K. Mohan in Cochin and Chennai-based Roverco Apparel.

Besides technical training, the trainees at the centre are also imparted knowledge regarding company laws, life skills, soft skills, leadership and motivational skills, and languages like Hindi and English.

The training centre resembles and gives the feel of a real industry shop floor with industrial sewing machines, where the training is imparted in two shifts.

The centre happens to be the first of the seven training centres in Odisha and 543 training centres across India to obtain such a certificate of accreditation. The certification is a Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand, who lead the world in quality management.
