Korean electronics major Samsung and the MSME ministry have announced a partnership to set up Technical School in MSME Technology Centres across India. The partnership will provide a boost to trainees by incorporating a strong component of hands-on industry training.
 

The MSME-Samsung Technical School will run Samsung’s Advanced Repair and Industrial Skills Enhancement (A.R.I.S.E.2) program, 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. Students will also get real time working experience at Samsung authorised services centres. Other than technical skills, as part of the course the students will get a chance to learn soft skills which will further enable them to provide exemplary customer service.
 

Ten MSME-Samsung Technical Schools will be set up across India - one each in Delhi, Ahmedabad, Aurangabad, Bhubaneswar, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Ludhiana, Mumbai and Varanasi. The first MSME-Samsung Technical School was opened on August 4, 2014 in Delhi at MSME Extension Centre, Connaught Place.
 

Kalraj Mishra, Minister of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, in a release said, “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. I also believe that many of them can also establish their own enterprise and service centre for repairing and maintenance of electrical and electronics goods”.
 

B D Park, President & CEO South West Asia, Samsung Electronics, commented, “India is a key growth market for global consumer electronics manufacturing which lends itself to enormous employment opportunity. As an industry leader, Samsung is committed to working with the Indian Government to tap this potential. Our collaboration with the Ministry of MSME to create a pool of skilled workforce through the MSME – Samsung technical school is a step in this direction. We are confident that through the Samsung A.R.I.S.E.2 program, students will get hands-on experience that will make them an asset to the industry.”
 

Amarendra Sinha, Additional Secretary and Development Commissioner, Ministry of MSME, said “Industry experience is a critical aspect of skilling students of ready employment. We are confident that with hands-on training components of the A.R.I.S.E.2 program, students of technology centre across the country will be better equipped to enter the job market.”
