The 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 the Na­tional Skill De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (NSDC).

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

ESSCI strives to es­tab­lish a struc­tured mech­a­nism, wherein it will fa­cil­i­tate and col­lab­o­rate with NSDC to strengthen the ex­ist­ing vo­ca­tional education and train­ing sys­tem for skills de­vel­op­ment in the elec­tron­ics sec­tor, and also up­grade it to achieve global stan­dards in man­power pro­duc­tiv­ity.

To do this, it is build­ing a ro­bust ecosys­tem of part­ners and knowl­edge con­trib­u­tors, and de­vel­op­ing a train­ing mech­a­nism that will lead to the 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. It has trained over 400,000 can­di­dates in the above schemes so far, and aims to train over two mil­lion more in the com­ing two years.
