Sacorda : The hub and spoke of training
Adhering to the Fomento Resources philosophy of “people as our environment” - the idea of an in house vocational training centre was conceived and executed, to impart training for workmen from all eleven mining locations in Goa and Maharashtra. The centre is located at Sacorda.
Training at the centre is conducted in line with the Mines Vocational Training Rules 1966 to an inhouse workforce of 800 to 900 people in different categories. Special emphasis is placed on new recruits and truck drivers.
The Centre is headed by a Training Officer who is assisted by competent mechanical and mining instructors and technical support staff.
Modules covered here pertain to driving and safety measures. The visuals are shown on a PLC projector for better understanding.
