MUMBAI, MAY 3, 2018: Kurla-based St. Joseph ITI, a Don Bosco institution, joined forces with Motul, a leader in the motor vehicle lubricant industry to set up the 'Motul School For Learning' on April 30.
Since a boom in the number of two and three wheeler vehicles on Indian roads, there has been an ever-increasing need for skilled technicians to service and maintain these vehicles. Motul and SJITI hope that their partnership will bridge the gap in the supply of skilled workforce.
The entire training programme is funded by Motul and will run for a year. During this period, students will gain on-job training in service dealerships with the partners of Motul. Twenty students will be part of this programme each year.
Preetam Goswami, VP-marketing from Motul, along with the Rector- Director Of Don Bosco Centre for Learning, Father Colbert da Silva, signed the Memorandum of understanding (MoU). Motul will now set up the lab with equipment including bikes for practical training. Additional support and specialised training will be provided by Motul through guest lectures and on job training for the trainees. SJITI will be the training body for the programme.
