Hyderabad: Dr MCR HRD Institute has launched Training for Trainers (ToT) Program for E-Learning Training Modules for government employees, sponsored by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT).

Over 100 chief planning officers, e-district managers, district educational officers, district training coordinators, headmasters, and school assistants, who have undergone the ToT, will be the Master Trainers for imparting training to mandal and divisional level employees across the State.

Senior officers from the DoPT, including Vijay Kumar Sinha, Director – Training Division, and Seema Srivastava, Director – Learning Resource Centre, imparted training to the Master Trainers.

Devesh Chaturvedi, Joint Secretary – DoPT, said the Centre had selected six States — Assam, Haryana, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Telangana — on a pilot basis and plans to cover approximately 82,000 frontline State government functionaries during 2017-18.

“The huge reduction in the per trainee cost of training — from Rs 18,000 for conventional training to a mere Rs 1,500 for e-training — will be greatly instrumental in imparting training to a much larger segment of employees and in achieving the goals of both Telangana and the country at large,” he said. The DoPT plans to conceptualise and execute e-Learning modules for in-service employees too at different levels of employment, he said.

TS Special Chief Secretary and Director General of the Institute BP Acharya said that imparting e-Learning modules to 9,000 employees across the State was an ambitious target and called upon everyone concerned to put forth their best efforts in taking this initiative to the shore, safely and successfully.

On Friday, this first-of- its-kind e-Learning programme was launched for cutting-edge level functionaries of Ranga Reddy district.

S Niranjan Reddy, Vice-Chairman, Telangana State Planning Board called for extensive use of information and communication technology considering the fact that it was being successfully used across the globe for delivery of all public services.
