The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) has launched a number of Skill Certification Schemes to enable a large number of Indian youth to take up industry-relevant skill training that will help them in securing a better livelihood. A major scheme for assessment and certification of individuals with prior learning experience or skills is called Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). RPL extends to 2000+ job roles aligned to NSQF provided these are QRC and NSQC approved.

The targets set for skilling Indian youth demands systematic execution through speed, scale and sustainability. A major step towards ensuring quality and consistency while meeting the numbers is the formation of state-of-the-art training centers called the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendras (PMKK). Innovision will be conducting the program at its six PMKK centres across the state of Haryana – Gurgaon, Faridabad, Mewat, Rewari, Mahendergarh and Palwal.
