Project Description

Since then, CREDAI is conducting regular on-site training programs for construction workers are construction sites through its member developers spread across 23 states and 171 city chapters. The training is a mix of 'classroom' and on the job training conducted at the construction sites itself for a period of about 4 weeks. These trainings are based on National Occupational Standards & Qualification Packs of NSDC aligned for industry specific job roles. The classroom training apart from technical aspects also has soft skill trainings focussing on the social & behavioural habits of the trainees, including health, sanitation and safety to bring significant improvements in their world view and way of life.

The skill trainings on construction sites have helped the construction worker to gain better and more remunerative work opportunities and above all a degree of self-confidence. Once they undergo the trainings, raw/unskilled workers look forward to handling semi skilled jobs and semi skilled workers to jobs requiring skilled manpower. In fact, Wage Enhancement is assured for all the undergoing such trainings, without having to be enforced or stipulated in any formal manner.

From the developer's/contractor's perspective the training program has helped in 'improving workers' productivity, and quality of work. It has also lends to reduction in wastage of material and saving of time and money, thereby enhancing their commitment to take skilled workers on their sites.
