The institution runs skill-training courses for fitters, machinists, and electricians. 160 trainees enroll in the ITI every year. Twenty-one fitters are currently in training, 16 machinist, 48 motor mechanics, 21 draughtsman mechanics, 26 electronics mechanics, and 21 electricians.

The institution provides youth with unparalleled access to training via industrial tie-ups with industry giants and job placements.
