ITI provided a very good exposure and practical knowledge about the things we learnt. We were exposed to many Industrial visits where we could gain technical and practical knowledge. Presently I am employed as an Assistant Engineer in B.H.E.L Electronics Division Bangalore. I am working in Sub Assembly Engineering Dept. where we design, develop, assemble and test electronic modules and supply for various applications like power plants, traction (transmission) Industrial application etc. With the encouragement from our head of Department (HOD), I was able to give 50 suggestions and bag 25 impressive awards. With my sincere hard work, dedication and skill I was nominated for Prime Minister Shram Awards, successfully for three years. I have been awarded PM’s ShramVeerangana award for year 2012. ITI gave me the opportunity to get theoretical/practical knowledge and exposure through various Industrial visits, practical demonstration and chance to attend competitive examinations. My advice to ITI trainees / Apprenticeship trainees – Gain practical knowledge, put into use the Theory studied in ITI, develop creative knowledge. My message to the youth –Be sincere, honest and hardworking, develop passion towards your work, love your work and respect your teachers and elders you are sure to excel.
