Empowering and building careers for rural youth through skill training
Training
Methodology
The methodology of trade training comprises the following:
Skill Standards
As a pre-requisite to meet the strategic objectives, occupational
skill standards have been laid down specifying the requirement
of knowledge and skills in respect of each trade. Skills have been
grouped into three distinct levels starting from basic level III,
and progressing to intermediate level II and thereafter to high
level I.
Training Curriculum
For each trade, a Job Tree Task Analysis detailing the content
to be covered under this unified modular training and a basic
course book has been written.
Training Period
All the courses are designed as short-term vocational training.
The period varies from 200 hours spread over 1 month to 600
hours spread over 3 months depending on the trades. The
coverage is practical oriented (80%) and classroom training
(20%).
Training the Trainers
Experienced L&T personnel from construction job sites in
respective trades are drafted and professionally trained to deliver
instructions, assisted by experienced workers to demonstrate
field practices. Such trained persons are eventually posted to
effectively impart trade training.
Workmen Referral Card
A workmen referral card has been introduced, which furnishes
personal data of each tradesman and a format to record the skill
level of the jobs done by the individual. Such data are stored
in electronic media for easy access and continuous updating,
reference and follow-up.
Career Progression Plan
Training Programme design using the modular approach allows
for continuous assessment of achievement and recognition at
each stage of training. Trade Competency Tests at all levels are
conducted at periodical intervals to determine the knowledge
and skill standards attained.
Technicians who successfully complete the training to
the standards required under the continuous assessment
programme are awarded the respective trade certification.
Integration with National Main Stream
The integration of the CSTI-Technician in the National
mainstream is envisaged via Certification through approved
National Certifying Authorities.
Skilled Workers changing the Skyline of the Nation
Such trained technicians are deployed at various job sites
across the country. They work along with their peers and
attain expertise in respective trades over a period of time.
Indeed these trained workers attain more than the required
skill standards in the shortest time possible and contribute to
changing the skyline of the nation.

Learning the
ropes of Construction
The Construction industry in India is the second largest
employer after agriculture, providing employment to about
33 million people. Intelligence and skill are the most sought
after work traits in this fast growing industry. Moreover,
the effect of globalization has enabled the Construction
industry adopt latest technologies in both the materials
used and the methods of construction thereby resulting in a
growing demand for world-class quality in workmanship.
There is a need to complete projects at
reduced cost, coupled with speed
and safety. This in turn demands a
drastic increase in productivity of
men and machines, which can be
achieved only by imparting intensive
training to workmen and equipping
them with the required
knowledge and skills
in construction.
Understanding this need for developing skilled workforce,
Larsen & Toubro a USD 9.8 billion technology, engineering,
construction and manufacturing company set out to
regulate and promote Construction Vocational Training
(CVT) in India by establishing a Construction Skills Training
Institute (CSTI) during late 1995 at Chennai.
For more than a decade, CSTI has been developing skilled
workforce through structured training. Such structured
training enables both new entrants and less experienced
workers in the industry, progressively improve their
knowledge and competencies in the respective trades.
Construction skill standards are formulated for different
trades after carefully analyzing the knowledge and the
skill expected for each level of competency. In addition,
different trade tests have been specified to assess the
knowledge and skill level attained.
Infrastructure
and Vision
The Construction Skills Training Institute (CSTI) has separate
conducive campuses at Chennai, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bangalore,
Delhi, for practical and class room training
Objectives
• To train the construction workforce to meet the challenges
and demand for world class construction skills in terms of
safety, quality of workmanship and time.
• To identify the training needs of construction workforce and
set standards to monitor their occupational competencies
and the technical skills deployed in the industry.
• To disseminate knowledge and appropriate skill practices
through recognized systems of training, testing and
certification to validate competency levels.
• To facilitate training by setting up modular training schools
with well defined infrastructure and curriculum.
• To serve the social objective of the organization through
channelizing the potential and strength of rural youth in
India, for producing trained construction workforce who are
capable of delivering world class standards.
