Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) today inaugurated its first Skill Enhancement Centre in Rajasthan in collaboration with the Government Industrial Training Institute (ITI), Jodhpur. The new centre, which is operational from today, will empower local youth with job-oriented technical skill training in Jodhpur.

The facility has a fully functional workshop with two-wheelers and service infrastructure to give practical training to students on technical aspects of two-wheelers maintenance and repair. On completion of the one-year training program, HMSI will also support with recruitment opportunities to successful candidates at HMSI dealerships.

The inauguration was held in the presence of Hitesh Kumar Garg,  Deputy Director, Department of Skill Employment & Entrepreneurship, Government ITI, Jodhpur; Shiv Ratan Mandhana, Chairman, Institute Management Committee, Government ITI, Jodhpur; Indra Ram Genwa; Principal, Government ITI, Jodhpur; Sudhir Vyas, Vice-Principal, Government ITI, Jodhpur; Rajnish Mittal, Deputy General Manager, Customer Service Technology & Customer Relations, HMSI;  Saravjeet Chauhan, Division Head North – Customer Service, HMSI, and other dignitaries from HMSI.
