Training of Trainers

FICSI has been assigned the task of carrying out Training of Trainers (ToT) program by National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) in the NSQF aligned Qualification Packs. Through this training, we try to imbibe the best practices that a trainer can employ while delivering to his audience.

The primary objective of ToT is to introduce the trainer to the skilling ecosystem and keep them up to date with the changing landscape of training in the country.
