New Delhi: Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd. has introduced a distinctive training model for Body and Paint Repair (BP) under the Toyota Technical Education Program (T-TEP), at the Sir C. V. Raman Industrial Training Institute, Delhi.

The new Body and Paint Repair Syllabus, a first of its kind in India, has been developed in collaboration with the Department of Training and Technical Education, Government of NCT, Delhi. To begin with, the course will provide training to 40 students every year.

Toyota along with its supplier partners, Asian PPG and 3M, will provide all necessary support to the institute i.e. training consumables, visiting faculty, training material, tools, equipments, scholarships etc.

The T-TEP Body and Paint curriculum, a 1 year syllabus, under the State Council of Vocational Training, introduces students to Toyota's advanced technology and service techniques. It also includes, on-the-job training, at Toyota's dealerships. As a part of this program, TKM will also train institute instructors in the latest technology, used at Toyota and the automobile industry.

"TTEP has been successfully implemented in 419 institutes across 53 countries. We introduced TTEP in India, in 2006, and since then have been successful in imparting training, to create skilled manpower. As we reach out to other ITIs in the coming years, we wish to contribute towards a marked increase in the availability of skilled manpower in the Indian automobile repair industry. We are committed to provide the best to the students, which will eventually benefit the industry on the whole," said Hiroshi Nakagawa, MD, Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt Ltd.

The project is jointly funded by Toyota Motor Corporation and Toyota Kirloskar Motor. In a span of 4 years, 16 institutes have been covered under the program. In its first year, the program was implemented in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Hubli. The program was subsequently introduced in Bangalore, Pune, Cochin, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Ghaziabad, Kolkata, Jaipur, Jalandhar, Indore and Mumbai.

"The Indian Automobile industry has been growing at a rapid pace. This has generated the need for a pool of skilled manpower. The gap currently existing between the supply and, ever increasing, demand for skilled manpower, will only widen with this growth. TTEP is a step towards bridging this gap. After successfully implementing Toyota Technical Education Program in Delhi in 2007, we have now introduced a special course on Body and Paint Repair. This would in turn create skilled technicians for the Body and Paint Repair industry - a largely unorganized segment - of the automobile service industry," said Sandeep Singh, DMD, Marketing, Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt Ltd.
