Tata Power Skill Development Institute (TPSDI) Maithon, Dhanbad – Empowering the youth with skills India requires for her green energy transition

19 Aug 2022

The Tata Power Skill Development Institute (TPSDI) is an endeavour of Tata Power to empower youth and others with employable skills, especially in the power and allied sectors, and to address the skill gap challenge faced by the Indian Power Sector in the clean energy space. The Institute provides modular training and certification across a wide range of employable skills. TPSDI was launched on February 9, 2015 as part of Tata Power's Centenary Year celebrations. The Institute has set up six training hubs in three locations in the country, leveraging the facilities of Tata Power and its JV/Subsidiaries: Shahad, Trombay, Vidyavihar in Mumbai, Maharashtra; Maithon-Dhanbad, Jharkhand; Mundra-Kutch, Gujarat; Jojobera-Jamshedpur, Jharkhand. TPSDI also runs programs in collaboration with TPDDL-CENPEID, Delhi. The Institute's unique training approach is designed to deliver skills with speed, scale, and standards. It offers certification and modular training in a wide range of technical skills with the aim of making the local youth more employable.

The employability-centric courses range from 2 to 12 weeks in duration and follow the TPSDI Competency Framework, which is congruous with the National Skill Quality Framework (NSQF). The TPSDI Competency Framework allows participants to swiftly pick up readily deployable skills and continue upgrading their skills at convenient intervals over a period of time. Training at TPSDI ensures the holistic development of trainees. In addition to technical skills, training at TPSDI also focuses on other dimensions of skill building, such as industry orientation, and work ethics, and places special emphasis on safety, health, and the environment (SHE) considering the sector's specific needs. The training consists of both knowledge and hands-on skills. The Institute works hard to make sure that people from less fortunate parts of society and those who live below the poverty line (BPL) have easier access to its courses.

Along with its extensive electrical and mechanical programs, TPSDI Maithon faculty with extensive domain expertise have been providing the young brigade with the technical knowledge necessary for them to spearhead the shift to sustainability through its range of diverse courses in renewable energy. Through TPSDI, Tata Power intends to bring the country closer to energy security by offering the appropriate training to young adults for green jobs, reaffirming its campaign ‘Sustainable is Attainable’. The campaign focuses on making a sustainable lifestyle "attainable" for Indians by giving them the ability to change through widespread adoption of green products and solutions, building on energy conservation and the demand for and adoption of clean energy.

TPSDI's renewable energy courses in Solar Photovoltaic for Electric Vehicle Charging, Installation and Maintenance of Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic, Installation of Smart Meters, and Home Automation equip trainees with the knowledge and abilities necessary to prepare them for the anticipated increase in green jobs. TPSDI is ready to lead the green transition in the country by creating an ecosystem that includes training for young people in green and smart energy.
