Elec­tron­ics Sec­tor Skills Council of In­dia (ESSCI) is a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion, reg­is­tered un­der the In­dian Com­pa­nies Act, 1956. The Council is pro­moted by six in­dus­try as­so­ci­a­tions—CEAMA, ELCINA, IESA (for­merly ISA), IPCA, MAIT and ELCOMA, with fi­nan­cial sup­port from Na­tional Skill De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (NSDC).

ESSCI fo­cuses on es­tab­lish­ing an ef­fec­tive and ef­fi­cient ecosys­tem for de­vel­op­ing and im­part­ing out­come-ori­ented skills for the elec­tron­ics sys­tem de­sign and man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try (ESDM). ESSCI’s man­date com­prises de­liv­er­ables such as the de­vel­op­ment of cur­ricu­lum/cour­ses, an in­for­ma­tion data­base, and de­liv­ery sys­tems. ESSCI is re­spon­si­ble for stan­dard­i­s­a­tion, ac­cred­i­ta­tion and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­cesses to en­hance the em­ploy­a­bil­ity of the In­dian work­force, glob­ally.

Elec­tron­ics Sec­tor Skills Council of In­dia aims to en­able a world class elec­tron­ics man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try with an ecosys­tem for skills de­vel­op­ment to en­hance the em­ploy­a­bil­ity of the vast In­dian hu­man re­sources pool.

ESSCI strives to es­tab­lish a struc­tured mech­a­nism wherein it will fa­cil­i­tate and col­lab­o­rate with NSDC in strength­en­ing the ex­ist­ing vo­ca­tional ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem for skills de­vel­op­ment in the elec­tron­ics sec­tor and up­grade its vo­ca­tional train­ing sys­tem in or­der to achieve global stan­dards in man­power pro­duc­tiv­ity. The ap­proach of ESSCI is to build a ro­bust ecosys­tem of part­ners and knowl­edge con­trib­u­tors, lead­ing to re­search and analysis, and to de­velop a train­ing mech­a­nism that will lead to ac­cred­i­ta­tion and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of trained re­sources. ESSCI has over 157 train­ing part­ners with over 1750 train­ing cen­tres across the coun­try, all of which are well equipped to un­der­take skills de­vel­op­ment across job roles in all seg­ments of ESDM. ESSCI has de­vel­oped 156 Qual­i­fi­ca­tion Packs (QPs) and 450 Na­tional Oc­cu­pa­tion Stan­dards (NOS) to cater to skills en­hance­ment across the elec­tron­ics sec­tor.
