Our objectives to deliver industrial demand-oriented training can be achieved only in close collaboration with local enterprises. One of the pillars of this collaboration is the faith of our partners in our skill training concept and the Dual System of Training. The trainees leaving our institute are multi-skilled and have wider knowledge beyond the scope of the prescribed syllabus. AIAT has earned a good reputation in industry for its quality of trainees.

Today AIAT collaborates with our industrial partners in the area of

  • Dual System of Training in 4 trades
  • In-plant training
  • Industrial visitation
  • Guest lectures or special programs such as promotion of English knowledge (CSR activities of Grace Infrastructure)
  • Training of companies employees in refreshing their skills
  • Support to maintain our infrastructure

AIAT would like to enlarge the current partner base and invites industry to become a partner of AIAT either in the Dual System of Training (DST) or as a Basic Training Provider (BTP) under NAPS or as trainer partner refreshment training of your employees, industrial visit, volunteers as guest lecturer or for apprenticeship training and placement.

The mission of the IMC is to guide the management of AIAT in its long-term strategy, on course offering, on training as per industrial demand, in winning industrial partners for Dual System of Training and its CSR as well as placement activities.
