Honda 2Wheelers India opens its third Skill Enhancement Center

Honda 2Wheelers India – Bengaluru: As part of its commitment to the Skill India Mission, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) opened Karnataka’s third Skill Enhancement Centre in Bengaluru, in conjunction with the Government Model Industrial Training Institute (ITI). The new centre, which opened today, will provide job-oriented technical skill training to local kids in the community. 
 
Mr. Yogeshwara S. (Director, Department of Industrial Training and Employment, Government of Karnataka), Mr. Vaijagond (Joint Director, Bangalore Divisional Office, Department of Industrial Training and Employment, Government of Karnataka), Mr. Halappa Shetty (Deputy Director and Principal, Government Model ITI, Bengaluru), and Mr. M. S. Srivathsa (Deputy General Manager, Regional Office South Customer Servicing), were present at the inauguration. 
 
“Fulfilling our commitment to up-skill local youth and boost their employability, we are proactively supporting the Skill India Mission to empower Indian youth,” stated Mr. Pradeep Pandey, Senior Vice President – Customer Service, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India. The demand for competent technical people has increased due to the ongoing changes in the fast growing vehicle sector. Students were unable to receive hands-on practical instruction because to COVID-19 constraints. In Bengaluru, HMSI’s third Skill Enhancement Centre in Karnataka will provide improved facilities for recouping for practical training while ensuring all safety standards are followed. We will also continue to open other centres in other parts of the country.”

HMSI’s Bengaluru Skill Enhancement Centre (Hosur Main Road, Hombegowda Nagar) has a fully functional workshop with two-wheelers and service infrastructure, as well as the most up-to-date tools and technology, to provide students with hands-on training in technical aspects of two-wheeler maintenance and repair. Following the end of the training programme, HMSI will assist successful candidates with recruiting opportunities at HMSI dealerships. 
 
HMSI has taken various steps in the direction of skill development as part of its corporate social responsibility. HMSI is establishing Skill Enhancement Centres across India to bridge the gap between the demand for and availability of educated workers in the automotive sector. HMSI currently operates 50 skill enhancement centres in 19 Indian states.
