India-led International Solar Alliance (ISA) has announced that it is contemplating to develop a free training & placement project for technicians from its member countries in the field of solar energy.
This program will be based on the pattern of Government of India’s (GoI’s) Suryamitra skill development program, which is planned by National Institute of Solar Energy (NISE). Suryamitra is a free residential program including boarding and lodging.
The purpose behind the program is to deliver training & placement to technicians in the field of solar energy to support the ISA programs such as – scaling solar applications for agriculture use; scaling solar mini grids; scaling rooftop solar. Also, the duration of the program will be of three to four months.
In order to deliberate further on this, ISA has invited and requested to participate industry, training institutes and stakeholders, who are active in the field of solar energy from across the globe, in the consultation meeting.
The meeting will be held on July 19, 2019 at 11:00 hrs IST at ISA Headquarters Gurugram, Haryana, India. However, it had by now conducted two consultation meetings on May 20, 2019 and June 20, 2019.
ISA, which is the first international inter-governmental treaty based organization, said in a statement that, “All stakeholders can join the meetings by using the web link to be provided on the ISA website on the time fixed for the meeting, in case they are not able to be physically present.”
During the meeting, the stakeholders can suggest about the contents, duration of theory and practical classes and the assistance the Industry and Training Institutes can offer during training.
Further, the placement of trainees after the completion of training in their respective countries may also be considered while designing the course.
