Apprenticeship Training Registration 2023 | Updated:

In the year 1961, the Apprentices Act came into force to technically train the apprentices through the use of the available resources. Under the Apprenticeship Training Scheme, the aspirants get on-the-job training and practical experience, through which they are better equipped to handle the different situations at the workplaces. Under this Act, the employers are obligated to recruit apprentices and permit them to work in the respective trades.

Apprenticeship Training

Apprenticeship training includes both basic (theoretical practice) and practical training at workplaces. Under this scheme, the candidates are given exposure to the actual working conditions. As part of Apprenticeship training, the candidates gain technical know-how and practical experience and also, develop the requisite skills of the respective trades. At the workplaces, the apprentices receive training from the company staff. Competent managers make sure that the apprentices conduct the training as per the structured training modules for honing the skills of the apprentices.

The apprentices are paid stipend for the training duration; 50% of the amount is reimbursed by the Government of India to the employer. After completion of the training, the candidates have to clear the All India Trade Test (AITT) that the National Council of Vocational Training (NCVT) conducts. The successful candidates are conferred with the ‘National Apprenticeship Certificate’ by the Union Government of India. The certificate is recognized at all employment centers across India and validates that the person has the given expertise.

The apprentices can receive training at Private Sector companies and State / Central organizations that are well-resourced with world-class training facilities.

Apprentices have a wide choice in engineering and non-engineering trades to choose from, as specified by the Government of India.
