The Telecom Sector Skill Council (TSSC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Broadband India Forum (BIF) towards meeting and developing manpower training requirements of nextgen technologies like 5G, IoT, FTTH, Small Cells, In Building Solutions and others.
The MoU, which has been signed for a duration of 3 years and is aimed at facilitating the development of efficient and adequately skilled manpower resources amongst BIF’s member organisations.
“Our aim is to enable the telecom sector to grow rapidly to cater to future demand. India has become the next big destination for capital investment in the ICT manufacturing and servicing domain,” said Arvind Bali, CEO, TSSC.
The efforts under this MoU will include joint mapping of skill requirements against the industry demand for both reskilling and upskilling to be conducted by BIF and TSSC. TSSC will support BIF’s wide ranging membership base in development of their requisite training ecosystem, alignment of training deliverables to industry requirements, and will create awareness of the skill program among them.
T. V. Ramachandran, President, Broadband India Forum said, “BIF is pleased to associate with TSSC, which has long been the gold standard for skill development in the telecom sector in this endeavour, which we believe will help strengthen our objective of facilitating ubiquitous, high-quality and affordable broadband for all.”
TSSC and BIF will issue joint certificates on all the paid National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF) aligned courses. TSSC will help develop programs with high industry visibility and traction for BIF members and provide guidance on various government skill development schemes for participating and deriving benefits from.
