New Training Company in India

nife-postIn early December 2013 a Business Transfer Agreement was signed between TÜV Rheinland India and NIFE India regarding the takeover of the NIFE training activities. NIFE was founded in 1992 providing vocational training courses in the fields of Fire & Safety, Fiber Optics and Lift Technology. Headquartered in Kochi (Federal State of Kerala), NIFE operates 40 direct training centers and 28 franchise centers as well as 3 information centers covering 65 cities in 7 federal states of India. The new company is named TÜV Rheinland NIFE Academy and will form the backbone of TÜV Rheinland’s training organization in India together with the existing Academy activities in this country.

Our warm welcome greetings are directed to the 290 new colleagues in India!

About TÜV Rheinland NIFE Academy

The main provider of vocational education in India – NIFE, is now acquired by TÜV Rheinland. The new established TÜV Rheinland NIFE Academy supports more than 10.000 seminar participants in 65 locations in India.
Owing to a missing formal training system for tradespersons, technicians or skilled workers like the vocational training system in Germany, the TÜV Rheinland NIFE Academy offers great opportunities for  the primary target group of young people between the ages of 17 and 24. It is assumed that only around 4% of the population has formal vocational training, another 10% is trained without a qualification and 86% of the approximately 1.3 billion Indians do not have any formal vocational training.
The academy therefore offers an enormous range of seminars whether lasting for several days or to university degrees.
