New Delhi, Aug 4 : The Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) and Samsung Monday joined hands to set up technical schools in MSME Technology Centres across India.
The MSME-Samsung Technical Schools will run Samsung's Advanced Repair and Industrial Skills Enhancement programme, providing students trade-specific training on various aspects of repair and troubleshooting for consumer electronics products such as mobile phones, televisions, home theatres, home appliances and their related accessories.
"I hope that this joint initiative of Ministry of MSME and Samsung would be able to train approx. 10,000 youth per year who would have the opportunity to find placement in various appliances manufacturing organisations, including Samsung," union MSME Minister Kalraj Mishra said.
"I also believe that many of them can also establish their own enterprises and Service Centre for repairing and maintenance of electrical and electronics goods," he said.
