Many students who have undergone skill-based training at Apollo MedSkills are now well-placed in jobs. Here are some testimonials
Focus on studies and only studies
Pavitra, stepped out from a remote village Bhedsur, Gulbarga District of Karnataka with a population of 2400 people and 415 households. Her parents work as landless labor with a meagre monthly household income of Rs.8000/- per month which is insufficient to feed their family of eight.
Pavitra learnt about health care skills training through her friend. Her interest in medical field was so strong from her childhood that she moved out of her village after her 12th grade in Arts subject and joined the training conducted by Apollo MedSkills in their Centre of Excellence in Bangalore. Pavitra is already on the path of career progression due to her high commitment to academics and job.
Pavitra says – “Thank you Apollo MedSkills for the superb training and bringing this change in my life. I am able to use the knowledge learnt during my training given by Apollo MedSkills at my work place. The excellent skill education taught me to be fearless with good communication, basic computer knowledge and time maintenance. I am drawing a salary of Rs. 11,000/- and sending Rs. 3,000/- home. My friends want me to open a diagnostic lab in my village in future. My father is very proud of me.”
Pavitra does not want to get married as she wants to complete her graduation, grow in life and help her father by shouldering the family responsibilities towards her younger brothers and sisters.
Don’t fear at work place, do your work properly!
Nikeeta, is working as the Blood Bank Technician in one of the diagnostic labs in Bangalore and drawing a decent salary for her living and also supporting her family. Her interest in science subjects brought her into the health care skilling.
Nikeeta Hanumantha says “There were always courses in computer skills and other skills but this is the first time I came to know about health care skilling. The Blood Bank Technician course at Apollo MedSkills is very useful. The teaching during the training program has developed my skills in domain subject, groomed me as a confident person for facing people at the work place. I am enjoying my work and using my skills at my job. DDU-GKY course offered by Apollo MedSkills is an excellent opportunity for me to continue studies and also get a job which is very un-usual”.
Nikeeta, born in Maharashtra, settled in a remote village Bhedsur in Gulbarga District of Karnataka State. She lost her father six years ago.

From Sports to Health Care

Sonal had to discontinue her favorite sport due to the family financial problems. One of her friends informed her about the courses offered by Apollo MedSkills for the un-employed youth of J&K through the DDU-GKY-Himayat Project. As per the information she collected, Dialysis Technicians are in high demand and hence she enrolled herself for this course. She completed her training at Apollo MedSkills Centre of Excellence in Bangalore.

Training and OJT were extremely good and learnt a lot from domain subjects, basics in computers, soft skills and practical classes. I am now working at Bhagvan Mahavir Hospital in New Delhi with a decent salary.”
When Apollo MedSkills asked about her ambition in life- this is what she said “I want to become the best Dialysis Technician. I want to join coaching classes to re-start my favorite sports boxing. I will pursue graduation.”

Sunitha’s neighbours and relatives are surprised to know about her achievements.
Sunitha is working with Rainbow Hospitals, Hyderabad after completing the health care course at Apollo MedSkills. Sunitha says “my parents are proud of me, but relatives and neighbours are surprised to see me work in such a large group of hospital. Initially, before joining the course I was worried whether I need to pay for this course as I cannot afford. I come from a very poor family. However, I did not have to pay a single rupee for the study material, training, hostel, food. Everything was free and Apollo MedSkills provided me placement also. I am personally happy as I am helping my family financially”.
I thank Apollo MedSkills for giving this opportunity for a good training and environment.
