Kerala govt to set up retail management institute
Mar '12
The Kerala government has announced establishment of a Retail Management Institute in Kochi city.

The decision has been taken with an aim to bridge the prevailing gap between training and enrichment of retail expertise for the emerging retail sector, especially in the state of Kerala.

Kerala Bureau of Industrial Promotion (K-BIP), Retailers Association of India (RAI), Infrastructure Kerala Ltd (INKEL) and Kerala Institute of Entrepreneurship Development (KIED) have joined hands to set up the institute.

The said institute would hold classes in KIED's Kalamassery-based campus, while its course structure would be designed and carried out with support of RAI, the accrediting agency for retail learning and development in India.

The basic courses that the institute would offer this year include certificate courses in retailing skills for the front-end employees of different retailing units, including apparel retails outlets.

Diploma in Retail Management, offering end-to-end retail management training, would also be gradually introduced.

The candidates successfully completing the courses would be given a completion certificate endorsed by District Industries Centre (DIC), K-BIP, INKEL and RAI, and bearing a logo of the Kerala government.
