Bosch Ltd, in collaboration with Bharath University, has launched a training centre in Chennai.

Located inside the premises of Bharath University, the joint certification centre was inaugurated on March 14.

Spread across 3,600 sq ft, the joint certification centre has been set up to provide quality training to students. The Centre will impart training in the areas of diesel systems, gasoline systems, diagnostics and auto electricals, among other areas.

With the aim to imparting quality skills that would help the youth build a sustainable future, training material has been developed and provided by Bosch.

The Centre is equipped with the latest Bosch Equipment, including fuel injection test bench, auto electrical test bench, diagnostic scanner, Bosch vehicle lift, among others. The training centre will provide joint certification programmes to students of Bharath University, technicians and service personnel alike. On an average 100 training programmes will be conducted every year.

The event was graced by Dr S. Jagatrakshagan, Founder Chairman, Bharath University, former Union Minister, Dr J Sandeep Anand, President, Bharath University, Dr M Ponnavaikko, Vice-Chancellor, Bharath University, and Abhijit Kallianpur, Senior General Manager, Automotive Service Solutions Bosch Ltd, India.

Commenting on the inauguration of the centre, Vijay Pandey, regional president, Automotive Aftermarket, Bosch Ltd, said, “In the automotive aftermarket sector, Bosch is among the highest generators of employment. However, given India’s insufficient labour pool, there is a need to build on the country’s employability level. The same has also been identified by the government, which has initiated the Skill India programme. To address this concern Bosch has collaborated with Bharath University in Chennai to offer quality training programmes. Our joint vision is to ensure the youth of India is able to build a sustainable future.”
