Veedol Auto Mechanic Academy

Veedol Auto Mechanic Academy is a skill development school for mechanics in the automotive sector, specializing in 2 and 3 wheelers, PVs, CVs, and tractors. It is one of a kind in the country. Skill development in the automotive sector has been identified as a significant need by the Government of India. The National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), with the help of private players, aims to equip 150 million persons with the necessary skills and knowledge to meet the growing demands of this sector by 2022. To fill the gap between the availability and need for skilled hands for repair, service, and maintenance of new generation automobiles, Veedol, the Professional’s Choice, has set up the Veedol Auto Mechanic Academy. The Academy has been setup over 5000 sq. ft. of dedicated space amidst gated greenery. Strategically located in Kolkata, the campus has a spacious classroom with a seating capacity of more than 25 students and houses its own laboratory with automotive parts that facilitates hands-on training. The ultimate objective of this Academy is to enhance the employability of its students through vocational education and skill building. For this, National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT), under the Ministry of Employment (GoI) certification protocol, has already been initiated. Nowadays, there is an influx of new generation cars with more sophisticated technology in the market. This arrival of a technologically advanced era has changed the paradigm of the car servicing and ancillary industry standards. The demand for a higher level of learning in this industry is immense, as the new generation vehicles need ‘specialist’ mechanics. The Academy will benefit the existing mechanics who have not been trained for the new generation vehicles. It will also equip the aspiring youth who want to make a career as self-employed auto mechanics or employment seekers with OEMs and reputed service centres.

The Professional Advantage

The Veedol Auto Mechanic Academy employs a holistic approach and provides many advantages which combined give its students a professional edge. The courseware is bilingual and students who enroll are required to be Class 8 pass outs at the bare minimum.
