Kerala Tyre Mechanics To Get Formal Training From RSDC Mobile Vans

Rubber Skill Development Council (RSDC) has taken an initiative to give professional training to tyre mechanics in Kerala. The formal tyre fitting education and knowledge sharing session will be conducted via RSDC mobile vans having necessary tyre fitting equipment and professional trainer. These vans will be doing rounds on highways and transport hubs in the southern state.

The program to certify tyre mechanics will be launched in phases; in the first phase, the mobile vans will be certifying 3000 tyre mechanics till the end of this March.

Flagging off the campaign, KN Raghavan Executive Director of the Rubber Board said, “Kerala is a major transport hub and tyre mechanics play an important role in making road transport safer. Fitting of tyres, especially commercial tyres, is a skill-based job requiring formal training. The drive by RSDC will make road transport safer and competitive.”

Expected to be more impactful than classroom training, the practical upskilling through the RSDC mobile vans will help in reaching distant places and training the tyre mechanics at their place itself.

Working on the guidelines of the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, the Rubber Board is conducting this exercise under its SAAMARTH project which pledges to upskill a million workforce in the rubber sector. For the skill development in the tyre sector, Automotive Tyre Manufacturers Association (ATMA) has also tied-up with RSDC.

Speaking on the program, Vinod Simon, Chairman RSDC said, “Tyres are known as wheels of a nation and tyre services and maintenance is a huge sector that needs a skilling boost. Currently, this segment, which has a major role to play in making road transport efficient and ensuring road safety, is largely unorganized. Hence skilling and reskilling in tyre services has been taken by RSDC as a priority area.”
