The initiative was taken by Hero MotoCorp in association with ASDC to develop customized courses with BS-VI technology and other new features in the two-wheeler industry.
The Automotive Skills Development Council (ASDC) and Hero MotoCorp, the world’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles and scooters, have teamed up to develop a comprehensive two-wheeled short-term training course – two-wheeler preventive maintenance and repair.
Using the content provided by Hero MotoCorp, ASDC will provide a variety of learning modules and certifications in automotive servicing. Through this program, ASDC will enhance its capacity and capability in curriculum development as well as faculty training to meet global standards.
The course has been approved by the National Council of Vocational Education and Training (NCVET), the top regulator on the apprenticeship portal. The two-wheeler preventive maintenance and repair program is designed for 63 days of theory and practice at an approved skills development center. This will be followed by 14 days of on-the-job training at approved two-wheeler service centers.
Both ASDC and Hero MotoCorp will focus on bridging the supply gap for skilled workers in the automotive industry and meeting the manpower needs across the country. The program will enable all candidates to develop relevant skills in future vehicles (EV / HEV) and become self-reliant, thereby empowering the youth for a brighter future and at the same time fulfilling the broad vision of Skill India.
