The Chamber of Industrial and Commercial Undertaking (CICU) has been empanelled as the skill development partner under the Punjab Skill Development Mission.

In 2012, CICU had established a skill development centre at its Gill Road office which offers training programmes to create a workforce to bridge the gap between academia and industry, and to provide job-related skill training to the unemployed and underemployed youth of Punjab. It enables the youth to contribute to the development of industry and trade.

CICU president Upkar Singh said their skill development centre had been empanelled and upgraded as a training partner for Punjab under various government schemes.

“This will boost the productivity of the country by enabling youth acquire high-quality skill training across a range of sectors. It will also bring a paradigm shift from input-based skill training to outcome-based training, at a much faster pace without compromising quality parameters,” he said. Under the programme, CICU has been allotted 120 seats for documentation assistant, banking and accounting to provide training to the unemployed youth and making them employable in the member companies and trade. No fee is being charged from the candidates and they are provided study material for daily training. The assessment and certification is done by the Government of India or the state government.— TNS
