India Yamaha Motor (IYM) has announced that the 27 students from the first batch have successfully graduated from its technical training Institute, Yamaha Motor NTTF Training Center (YNTC) based in Kanchipuram.

YNTC is the first Japan-India Institute of Manufacturing (JIM) in the country and its aim is to train future shop floor leaders with the Japanese style of manufacturing and working methods. The centre runs a four-year program in Manufacturing Technology in association with Nettur Technical Training Foundation (NTTF), an educational foundation aimed at promoting technical education for youth in India. The curriculum provided by YNTC and NTTF is registered under National Employability Enhancement Mission (NEEM), a government scheme to promote employability through on-the-job practical training for individuals.

The first batch of YNTC began in 2017 with students aged between 18 to 21 years. Till now, there were lot of difficulties like the ongoing pandemic situation since 2020, however, 27 students managed to complete the four-year diploma program. The company says 80 percent of the curriculum was imparted through hands-on training at Yamaha shop floors while 20 percent was delivered in a classroom set-up by NTTF.

During these four years the students were imparted practical skills in Japanese-style manufacturing, covering nine main areas: Motorcycle Assembly, Parts Control, Paint, Welding, Casting, Machining (in both aluminium and steel), Quality Control, and Utility Techniques.

Yukihiko Tada, director, India Yamaha Motor said, “It is a proud moment for Yamaha to witness these young talents all set to contribute to the manufacturing industry. YNTC was set up with a goal to contribute in the Skill India Development program and the success of these students today, further strengthens our mission to create a pool of trained manpower for the manufacturing industry. We will continue to move forward in this direction improving lives of the youth and support them by enhancing their knowledge and skill in Japanese manufacturing methods and techniques.”

The focus of the program at YNTC is to target young people residing in the rural areas in India with low income but having the potential to learn and enhance their skills.
