What is ITI?
Before jumping on the list of courses let’s gather some basic information regarding these ITIs. So the full form of ITI is Industrial Training Institutes. There are various government and private ITIs all over India that provide industrial training in various trades. The government-run ITIs comes under the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship. ITI was established in the year 1950 for skill development among students so that they can become industry-ready. Most of the students take admission in these ITI courses after completing their 10th. Whereas aspirants are also allowed to take admission in some ITI courses after passing 8th standard as well.
Now if we look at the courses offered by ITI then these courses can be classified into two categories. First, there are engineering courses and second, there are non-engineering courses. Engineering courses are those which provide some type of technical knowledge and non-engineering courses are those which provide training in trades such as soft skills, language, etc. ITIs mainly focuses on imparting skills to the students to increase their employability to work in their respective fields.
The admission process in ITI institutes is generally simple and not very hard. Most of such institutes give admission to the students on the basis of merit. They conduct a written examination to make a merit list and then select students for admission. This process is generally followed in all the government ITIs. Whereas some private institutes can also have a direct method to give admission. For this, you should visit your preferred institutes to collect the correct knowledge on it.
This point is very important for all the students who choose ITI courses over any other professional degree. Because the duration of these courses somewhere varies between 6 months to 2 years. Since a student can complete these courses in a shorter time period and secure a good job, therefore many choose to study in ITIs. The exact duration depends upon the trade you choose for training in.
(c) Eligibility Criteria
To get admission in these institutes the candidate first has to fulfill some eligibility criteria. Although these criteria are not very hard still you should keep them in mind. So firstly the candidate should pass 10th class from a recognized board with a minimum of 35 percent aggregation. Because most of the courses in these institutes accept the students after they pass the 10th class. Apart from these educational criteria the age of the candidate should be between 14 and 40 years. Some institutes also have their own conditions to give admission, therefore, you should check out the eligibility criteria for your preferred institute before applying.
(d) Why People Choose ITI Courses Over Regular Degree?
There are several reasons due to which students choose to pursue these ITI courses over a regular degree. The first reason is that any ITI course can be completed within a maximum of 2 years of duration, whereas a regular degree requires a minimum of 3 years to complete. The second reason is that students can get a job early in their career be because they can start pursuing ITI courses straight after 10th class and even 8th class (in some courses).
