WORKSKILLS COMPETITION
 

The Workskills competition was initiated by CII on the lines of the Skills Olympics organised by the industry in Europe as a means of promoting vocational training in industrial skills. The first CII Workskills was held in 1989 at the Advanced Training Institute, Dasnagar, Howrah. 205 workers from the Indian Industry participated in this event. In view of the overwhelming response received in the first Workskills, CII has institutionalised this competition as a major event for the industrial work force, held every year at the Regional and National levels. 

The competition is being held in nine trades viz. Electrician, Machinist (Miller), Welder, Fitter, Turner, Industrial Electronics, Tool & Die Maker, Instrument Mechanic and COPA (Computer Operator cum Processing Assistant) in two categories - upto 22 years of age and above 22 years of age. The objectives of the competition are - to encourage workers in the industry by providing recognition for individual merit and excellence in skills through organised competition in selected trades and to upgrade the standards and status of vocational trades and promote skills development programmes in the industry.
