Construction Industry Development Council (CIDC) has joined hands with National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) to provide Vocational-cum-Academic Integrated Program in “Construction Supervision (Civil)” on an open-learning model at its four Centres in Sultanpur, Gorakhpur, Ghaziabad and Faridabad.
With its countrywide network of training centres, CIDC & NIOS shall jointly train and certify “Workers and Supervisors through NIOS-CIDC certification”. The students will be taking this six month course through open-learning method 60 hours of classroom teaching together with 240 hours of practical work with exams at the end would enable the students to have a nationally recognized certification of NIOS together with CIDC.
Many more such programs are planned to be introduced shortly in construction and related skills and trades. Keeping in view the needs of various target groups, the thrust is on providing more vocational and community oriented education and training courses than merely providing general education. In all the courses of the NIOS-CIDC programme, students are evaluated on the basis of their skill, both in theory and practical. But weightage is given to practicals including projects and hands-on experience.
