ESSCI has 13 industries sponsored Centres of Excellence/Training Centers to train the trainers and has recently opened its centers in Bhubaneswar, Guwahati & New Delhi.

N K Mohapatra, CEO, ESSCI said, “ESSCI is equipped to train the youth across the country’s geography and is capable of conducting assessments and certification for each region. We have placed over 1 lakh candidates in various top companies in ESDM space and have won industry recognition as a trend-setting and innovative organization in delivering integrated skilled training solutions across India.”

He also shared that currently, ESSCI has a network of 183 Training Partners with over 4013 Training Centres spread across the country, including the far-flung areas of the North East States and J&K. Looking at the ESSCI’s contribution in the last 5 years, it has already trained over 7 lac candidates in over 60 ESDM job roles across the country.

Additionally, ESSCI intends to encourage entrepreneurship and innovation in the electronics space through an extensive partnership with IESA where it is playing a pivotal role to reach over 1 lakh relevant engineering students across 500 engineering colleges spanning India in the next 5 years. 

It will help in giving a boost to the government’s plan to advance the electronics sector manufacturing in India apart from creating jobs. And with this new initiative by ESSCI, India can be seen moving towards its goal of becoming self-reliant in the electronics field.
