Mr. Amaar Prabhu
KURLA-MUMBAI, JANUARY 29, 2013 : T-TEP or Toyota Technical Education is a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activity of TKM. The program focuses on supporting the ITI institutes in various ways. The program is implemented for two categories of the Service industry namely T-TEP General Service (T-TEP GT) and T-TEP Body & Paint Service (T-TEP BP) in conjunction with ITIs in India.
This program was started in Japan in 1990 by Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) and was launched in India in 2006 as a joint initiative among TMC – Japan, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM), Toyota Dealers, Supplier Partners and reputed ITIs across India.
St. Joseph’s Industrial Training Institute is proud to be associated with Toyota Kirloskar Motors since 2006 as a T-TEP Institute.
Under this program, Students undergo training on the latest automobile service concepts in both General and Body & Paint repair methods. The concept of this curriculum is to upgrade the existing ITI (Motor Mechanic Vehicle) course according to the requirements of the Industry by introducing latest Automobile Techniques, Service operation concepts and On the Job Training at a Dealer location. MMV trainees of SJITI spend the first year of their course mastering the syllabus set by the ITI board and in the second year they attend the On-Job-Training at Madhubhan Toyota Service Center, a Toyota dealer that is nearest to the Institute. There they are introduced to the T-TEP curriculum of theory and practicals. This program culminates in a Toyota Career Day, where various Toyota Dealers hold Interviews and all the trainees are placed in a Toyota Workshop.

This Seminar is held every year, to promote interaction between the various stake holders, T-TEP Institutes, Dealers and TKM Management. It was an excellent platform for the discussion of the challenges faced and suggestions made for the effective implementation of the T-TEP program. Each Institute presented the best practices followed by them, updates, new developments and expansions if any.
An important segment of the Seminar was the Skill Competition held for the Instructors of the various ITI Institutions – a truly learning experience for all who participated!
