Competing with the representatives from Germany, China, the USA, and France at the Skills Competition and winning a medal is inspiring. We are confident that our students will make a name for themselves in the competition to be held in Shanghai in October 2022. We are now aiming to create a permanent ‘Centre of Excellence for the best quality skills training for students where they will receive state-of-the-art training in construction skills,” said J.P. Shroff, Chairman, Kushal and Labour Welfare Committee of CREDAI-Pune Metro during the inauguration of a Kushal CREDAI World Skills Training Centre at AISSMS College of Engineering, Pune.

“We want the world to acknowledge our skills. Lots of civil engineers are now aspiring to be Tiling and Bricklaying experts,” said Shroff.
Speaking on the occasion, Pratap Pawar said,
“Students have the skills and intelligence but are not aware of it. It is commendable that Kushal CREDAI is working to find such skills in the country. Since we want better training for our children in every corner of the country through virtual reality, we have set up a system at Baramati and COEP at a cost of about Rs. 10 Crores. This will be available for free in association with CREDAI and COEP to CREDAI workers and students”
Ranjit Naiknavare said,
“Our workers need to be well-trained to fill any kind of gaps in the construction work. With such initiatives, Kushal CREDAI is trying to provide better training to future builders and engineers. We are playing a dual role in creating the skilled manpower required by the industry and creating employment for the citizens through skills development. In addition to it, Kushal CREDAI Pune Metro and MIT have also signed an MOU for an association to conduct diploma courses in real estate and infrastructure management. ”
“Whatever knowledge one acquires may be forgotten in a period of time but not the skills. In our education system, since children run after degrees and marks and ignore their skills, it is necessary for educational institutions to eliminate examinations and focus on skills. We will provide the complete digital support for publishing the efforts across India taken by these champions through his technological expertise” said Deepak Shikharpur.
