Pankaj Bajarang Jadhav Rieter Apprentice“My name is Pankaj Bajarang Jadhav. I am from Satara district in Maharashtra. My basic trade is turner. I have completed my VET diploma in 2013. Most of the students aspire to take admission in government diploma courses. But the problem I see with these courses is that they have 80% theory and only 20% practical training. But in the MSPT program it is the other way round: 20% is theory and 80% is practical. This is very helpful at our workplace. We obtain machine, turning, benchwork and assembly knowledge. It is the best program for starting the career. I would like to say thanks to Rieter and SkillSonics for giving me such an opportunity.”

Sunil Suresh Chavan Rieter apprenticeship“My name is Sunil Chavan. I am from Satara district in Maharashtra. I have completed an ITI course as a machinist at the government ITI in Karad. I wanted to take admission in a government college, but I didn’t have enough money to do it. In 2012 I was selected for a VET diploma at Rieter India. It was a golden chance for me to come closer to fulfilling my dream! Upon completion of the MSPT course in 2014 I moved on to become a production officer in the machine shop at Rieter India. I am now not only financially satisfied but have also participated an won the All India Skill Competition for apprentices (2013) and got 1st rank in regional level skill competition (2014). I thank Rieter and SkillSonics for this wonderful opportunity!”

After the course I was selected by Rieter India as an apprentice for the MSPT course. It was quite difficult for me, but I was eager to do it. The teachers taught us a lot of practical knowledge and we learned a lot. Initially I was hesitant to learn English, but now I am feeling confident speaking it. I am now employed at Rieter as a production officer in maintenance department. I am very happy with the skills I learned and the job I am doing. Thanks to Rieter and SkillSonics!”
