Low-quality training and education make people paper qualified but not employable or skilful. Govt. of India and states are in a mission mode on skill development, employability and creating employment opportunities. National Skill Qualification Framework specifies the standards to be achieved in skills training and education. District level skill development action plans are in the offing. Employers are investing in up-skilling its employees to prevent obsolescence with the kind of changes happening in technology and processes. The shift in customer expectations and the choices available to them, the pressure to manage profit by productivity enhancement and quality calls for excellence in knowledge, skills, attitudes and its continual improvement. This needs dynamic and excellent training inputs and trainers.

Hence, school teachers, and faculty imparting higher, technical and professional education, functional managers in organisations responsible for quality and performance of their subordinates, and professional trainers, all need training to train and educate the folks for desired outcomes. India has job seekers in millions. However, the employables competent to deliver work as required constitute only a small percentage. Only 3% of the working-age population in India are formally but poorly trained and certified. Similarly, the productivity and attitudes of the already employed are other challenging concerns.

For economic growth and development, it is imperative that the country tap its human potential by making them capable, passionate and involved to deliver the highest quality outcomes with the lowest cost. Knowledgeable, skilful, attitudinally positive, devoted and engaged workforce only can make this possible. Thus, India needs passionate, inspiring and quality trainers, educators and managers in thousands. The developed world is also looking for qualified manpower from India – vocational, professional and technical. Here is an opportunity to become a ‘Certified Trainer’ of quality and competence. Workforce does not mean only the blue collar ones. Even PM is a worker.

Facilitator: Prof. M.S. Pillai, Founder Director, SCMLD and a certified Master Trainer. Formerly, Founder Director, SCMHRD (Symbiosis) and Acting Director, SIBM (Symbiosis), he is known for his unique and innovative learning facilitation processes, inculcation of values & ethics and spiritual uplift towards transformational education and training for creating passionate, healthy and happy performers. He pioneered many drills driven habit altering educational processes to develop wholesome human beings and high performers. More than 10,000 of his students are going great as senior executives and entrepreneurs across the world.

According to the latest information, 402.87 million Indian youth/citizens are to be skilled and certified in a decade or so to facilitate their horizontal and vertical mobility. NSDA (National Skill Development Agency) and NSDC (National Skill Development Corporation) are working to make the certificates awarded by various Skill Councils internationally recognised/aligned for mobility of skilled manpower not only across India but also the world. Hence, it is unlike certification by any private bodies.

As per Govt. Gazette Notification of 27th December 2013, domestically every institution is supposed to define and align all its educational and training curriculum to the NSQF Levels 1-10 (standards) as relevant. Here comes the importance of ‘Certified Trainers’. Experience in working gets tremendous wisdom. But to train, coach, guide and mentor both freshers and the employed need structured and scientific approaches to facilitate learning and development. This programme is designed to make such trainers/educators. There are opportunities to get upgraded as ‘Certified Master Trainer’ and ‘Certified Super Trainer’ as well, subject to relevant eligibility conditions.

SCMLD has rolled out already three ‘Certified Trainer’ programs and one ‘Certified Master Trainer’ Program during the last 5 months.


  • Pioneer Batch of Training of Trainers (TOT) 9th-14th May 2017
  • Second Batch of Training of Trainers (TOT) 4th-9th July 2017
  • Third Batch of Training of Trainers (TOT) 14th-17th September 2017
  • First Batch of Training of Master Trainers (TOMT) 10th-12th September 2017

Next Training of Trainers (TOT) – ‘Certified Trainer’ Programme is scheduled for 26th – 29th October 2017. Interested may enrol now.

Eligibility: Masters equivalent, or Professionals, Executives, Faculty, Teachers, Trainers et.al with relevant qualifications in any domain/ function/ sector. However, the applicant should have delivered training sessions of at least 150 hrs. or must have conducted one ‘Train the Trainer’ or equivalent programme of minimum 3 days. Evidence of the above are to be submitted.

Fee: Rs. 14,800/- inclusive of learning material, tea/coffee, lunch, assessment and certification. It is a non-residential programme.

Advantage: As stated earlier skilling freshers (employability building), up-skilling existing employees for productivity enhancement, professional conduct and behaviour modifications and quality at par with global standards, is in a mission mode for a strong and prosperous India. It is a need of the time as well. Education and training so far have been knowledge/information-centric, and of rote learning, with no practical exposure, applied insights or dexterity. The thrust now is to make education and skilling people-centric, competency based and outcome oriented.

The above TOT is apt for freelance trainers and functional executives of organizations to emerge as effective in-house trainers for employees to improve productivity and promote professional behaviour and conduct. Also apt for teachers/ faculty members to become effective, engaging and inspiring learning facilitators. It is also for those who seek employment in Training/ Learning & Development roles in organizations and SCMLD will assist such participants to gain employment. Strategic L&D initiatives make learning organisations serve customers more effectively and enthusiastically.

Contents: The above 3-day programme is on platform skills for effective design and delivery of training to facilitate learning. It does not include any specific ‘domain skills’. Those who qualify and get certified as above can opt for specific domain skill training as well, of another 1-2 days of chosen Sector Skill Councils and become Certified Trainers with those SSCs also on the chosen domains. There are 38 SSCs with more than 2050 Job Roles/ Qualification Packs for which trainers are required. Only Certified Trainers can impart training in these job roles under relevant SSCs. These SSCs together have developed more than 11000 occupational standards (contents) which can be delivered only by certified trainers. Once certified, the Trainers’ profile will be on NSDC’s portal to be engaged by various SSCs (www.takshashila.nsdcindia.org).

Admission: Emphasis is not on any formal qualifications but aptitude, passion, experience, and meeting the eligibilities as stated above.

Opportunities: There are 38 skill councils offering (combined) 2050 Job Roles training in the country. Once you qualify as a ‘certified trainer’ as above, you can choose as many SSCs and take domain skill training on the basics of those sectors/job roles and become trainers in those SSCs. To be training with the SSCs for these job roles, certification is a must. One can also be an independent trainer in one’s own field.
