As part of its efforts to train men and women in garment manufacturing and make them employable, the Apparel Training and Design Centre (ATDC) has set up a ‘Skills for manufacturing of apparel through research and training’ (SMART) centre at Adugodi here.


The centre was inaugurated on Tuesday by Ramalinga Reddy, B.T.M. Layout MLA.

It will offer a free one-month training course in apparel manufacturing, Ravi Kishore, senior principal, told presspersons.

“Participants will be trained to work on advanced machines and by the end of the camp, they will be able to stitch an entire garment without guidance,” he added.

The Adugodi centre has the capacity to train 50 people at a time.

Class 5 pass students between the ages of 18 to 35 are eligible for the course, Mr. Kishore said.
