Centre Accreditation and Affiliation is a quality assurance process, under which Training Centres (TCs) are evaluated on defined quantitative and qualitative parameters determined by Sector Skill Councils (SSCs) to ensure standardization of training aids, infrastructure availability, etc. The Accreditation and Affiliation follows the SMART process.
SMART process is delivered through a unified platform, Skill India Portal that facilitates Accreditation, Affiliation and Continuous Monitoring of the TCs, which shall play a significant role in achieving the desired quality standards across various schemes.
Accreditation and Affiliation are the measuring scales for the provision of quality skilling by the training centres. Affiliation is a method for the Training Centres (TCs) to get formally associated with Sector Skill Councils (SSCs) in order to impart training to trainees for specific job roles aligned to NSQF. An affiliated TC has to follow the rules and regulations set by the respective SSCs that give the affiliation in order to maintain the Accreditation Standards. Affiliation can be granted to an Accredited as well as Conditionally Accredited Centre. A Conditionally Accredited Centre may apply for affiliation and get Conditional Affiliation. The validity of affiliation of a TC is for a year from the date of affiliation.
