In my previous article, I had shared the Components & Eligibility criteria of DDU-GKY, I hope you guys had gone through it. Today I'll tell you about the courses offered in the DDU- GKY Project and how Project Implementing Agencies (PIA) can be categorized.
Let us Start from the courses offered.
The skilling courses offered in DDU-GKY should be certified by the National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT) or Sector Skills Council (SSC) or any other agency notified for the purpose by MoRD*.
** In special cases certification by nationally acknowledged proprietary training brands will also be considered provided it has been approved by MoRD.
