Dual Training System


The Dual Training System (DTS) is a mode of training delivery which combines the strength of the school and that of the workplace. Theoretical and practical training is delivered in the school and the company. The student-trainee report to the school once a week while he works and trains in the company during the rest of the week.
The system embodies a strong linkage between IIT and your company and aims to benefit both your organisation and the student. IIT will send the student-trainees to your company for training and exposure. Your company makes good use of their skills and potentials by assigning them jobs where they could learn and be productive at the same time.
Your company, as a DTS partner, contributes to the training of the student-trainees and through this system could develop future technical manpower. The in-company training duration is projected at 10 months. Throughout this period, the student-trainees would acquire relevant knowledge and skills as their training progresses following a training plan and they become more productive. Thus, their contribution to your company increases exponentially during the in-company training phase of their training programme.
To ensure that the in-company training is effective, IIT and your company will together develop a Training Plan. The Training Plan details the assigned areas, activities, timeframe, and assigned supervisor amongst others, these aid monitoring and evaluation of the in-company training.
