THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In the wake of misleading campaigns conducted by some unauthorised institutions in the name of issuing Central Government accepted NCVT certificates, the training director of industrial training department has advised parents and students to be cautious while joining for courses in institutes.
Only NCVT approved government and private ITIs are authorised to conduct NCVT course. Students who pursue courses in these affiliated ITIs/ITCs alone are eligible for the NCVT certificate, a release said. Meanwhile, the certificate is also issued for people who have passed MES course. Only institutions that are selected as vocational training provider (VTP) are permitted to conduct such courses.
The assessing bodies and testing centres appointed by the Indian Government are not eligible to conduct MES course. Details regarding the authorised government/private ITIs and VTPs are available in all ITIs in the state and the office of training director at Thycaud. Details can also be accessed from the site www.detkerala.gov.in.
