India-led International Solar Alliance (ISA) is mulling to develop a free training & placement project for technicians from it’s member countries in the field of solar energy.

This program will be based on the pattern of Government of India’s (GoI’s) Suryamitra skill development program, which is organized by National Institute of Solar Energy (NISE). Suryamitra is a free residential program including boarding and lodging.

The motive behind the program is to provide training & placement to technicians in the field of solar energy to support the ISA programs such as – scaling solar applications for agriculture use; scaling solar mini grids; scaling rooftop solar.

Also, the duration of the program will be of three to four months.

In order to discuss further on this, ISA has invited and requested to participate industry, training institutes and stakeholders, who are active in the field of solar energy from across the globe, in the consultation meeting.

The consultation will be held on July 19, 2019 at 11:00 hrs IST at ISA Headquarters Gurugram, Haryana, India. However, it had already conducted two consultation meetings on May 20, 2019 and June 20, 2019.

ISA, which is the first international inter-governmental treaty based organization, said in a statement that, “All stakeholders can join the meetings by using the web link to be provided on the ISA website on the time fixed for the meeting, in case they are not able to be physically present.”

During the meeting, the stakeholders can suggest about the contents, duration of theory and practical classes and the assistance the Industry and Training Institutes can offer during training.

Further, the placement of trainees after the completion of training in their respective countries may also be considered while designing the course.

Commenting on the development, P.C. Sharma, Deputy Director (RE), ISA Secretariat said, “The role of industry is very critical in the success of training.”

Meanwhile, the suggestions can also be sent to ISA Secretariat through email to [email protected], Sharma added.
