What is skill India?
Skill has become a common denominator for success in today’s knowledge driven world. However skill levels are equal among all as it varies from person to person. In developing countries like India, with more than 1.2 Billion population, skilled manpower can bring in transformational changes. In order to harness the potential of this manpower, Government of India has launched Skill India initiative to skill Indian Youth. India is on the verge of dominant reforms and is heading towards the third largest economy of the world by 2030. Demographically India is the youngest country. Where 62% of the population is in the working age group of 15 – 59 years and more than 54% of total population is below 25 years of age. Skill India holds a mission to skill 40 crore people. Skill India falls under the ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship.

In order to implement the charter of Skill India. National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC)has 39 sector skills operating under it. NSDC works based on public-private-partnership(PPP) model by partnering with skill curriculum creators, training organizations, assessment agencies and placement companies. By creating such end-to-end synergy NSDC fuels skill development by catalyzing establishment of large, quality, for profit vocational institutions. NSDC also equips organizations with funding to build scalable for manpower through training institutes.
Electronics Sector Skill Council of India (ESSCI)
Electronics Sector Skill Council of India (ESSCI) is a Not-for-Profit organization, registered under the Indian Companies Act, 1956. The council is benefited by Six organization ie. CEMA, ELCINA, IESA, IPCA, MAIT & ELCOMA thereby creating a consortium of entire electronics ecosystem. ESSCI’s financial support is provided by National Skill Development Corporation(NSDC)

Emertxe is integrated with NSDC / ESSCI in the capacity of Training Partner (TP). Our existing training program, Emertxe Certified Embedded Professional (ECEP) is with the following Job roles specified by NSDC / ESSCI.
- Embedded Software Engineer – ELE/Q1501
- Product Engineer – ELE/Q4201
As per ESSCI’s terminologies it is Qualification Packs (QP), check out ESSCI- QP page to access complete QP details. Both courses come under level-5 as per the QP hierarchy with target audience as Engineers (BE / BTech / ME / MTech). We are very proud that Emertxe is the first institute to get affiliated under level-5 among hundreds of other Training Partners.

How NSDC / ESSCI affiliation is helping our students?
By Emertxe becoming NSDC / ESSCI training partner, our students benefit in the following ways:
- Certification: With alignment of our courses with ESSCI, our students will get certification from Government Of India. After completing our Embedded Course, ESSCI’s assessment panel conducts practical evaluation of our students based on which our students are provided with level-5 certification. By having this certification, it will open up larger long term career possibilities for our students. We are also glad to inform that Emertxe students almost had 100% pass rate in ESSCI’s certification exams. This again gives us testimony of our practical oriented training methodology.
- Standardization: ESSCI curriculum constantly goes through changes as per industry requirements. This is very much in alignment with Emertxe’s training philosophy. This means our students will always be learning from the standardized curriculum as expected by the industry. Since the curriculum is skill driven, they groom themselves for specific job roles.
- Ahead in the technology curve: Along with being a training partner Emertxe mentors are part of ESSCI’s Subject Matter Expert Group. This group constantly creates futuristic courses requiring advanced skills. For example recently ESSCI is in the process of rolling out an Embedded IoT course where our mentors are playing a significant part in reviewing and shaping the curriculum. In fact many elements of our Emertxe’s Embedded IoT course is already being part of ESSCI’s IoT course. With such expertise, these information and knowledge naturally gets percolated to our students. By close mentoring and knowledge sharing it ensures our students always stay ahead in the technology curve.
