When ACF planned to initiate a skill training centre in Chandrapur, there was lack of interest for short term courses as placement opportunities were low. However, being an industrial belt, industrial related courses which are government certified in the region were sought after. Following various processes, negotiations and follow-ups, SEDI Chandrapur was set up as an ITI.
At SEDI Chandrapur, industrial related courses like Electricals, Fitter, Welding are offered, and having started in 2008, has trained over 600 youth till date.
Dignitaries from the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, industry partners and other prominent guest were present at the event and appreciated the work carried out by SEDI Chandrapur.
