Textiles Technical Training Begins Today

Textiles Technical Training Begins TodayThe Textiles Technical Training Institute (TTTI), set up jointly by the Southern India Mills’ Association (SIMA) and PSG institutions exclusively for training workers, is all set to commence from today.

The textile industry has been facing acute shortage of labour and more so the technicians, both mechanical maintenance, electrical and electronics maintenance, SIMA chairman, T Rajkumar has said.

He said the textile projects particularly weaving and spinning have become highly capital intensive and therefore, SIMA had set up the institute jointly with the premier institution – PSG College of Technology to meet the urgent needs.

Rajkumar said all the leading textile machinery, spares and accessories manufacturers and service providers have come forward to share their technical expertise and train the technicians to meet the needs of the individual mills and maintain the machinery properly.

TTTI would offer short, medium and long term programmes, and to start with it plans to offer three to five days technical training programme for technical persons. The first batch of the four-day programme for the spinning preparatory fitters began today.

Rajkumar said faculty from PSG College of Technology and professionals from different private organisations would train the technicians.

He urged the textile mills to make use of all the services provided by TTTI and upgrade the skills of their workers, which is the need of the hour to remain competitive.
