State-owned power giant NTPC on Monday said the company offered online learning facility to over 19,000 employees during the coronavirus-induced lockdown. “NTPC has offered learning opportunities to its 19,000-plus employees and their family members,” according to a statement by NTPC.
To meet requirements of the lockdown imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NTPC Learning and Development (L&D) strategy has been customised to enrich employees through intensive digitisation and online training, enabling them to avail these services from home.
Moreover, it said the company has collaborated with the World Bank to offer its staff an opportunity to be part of a rigorous online technical course, attending virtual classes, giving assessments and, eventually, obtaining certifications.
Power Management Institute — NTPC’s apex L&D centre — has conducted 250-plus training sessions in diverse disciplines ranging from technical, functional, health and safety.
Besides, NTPC’s Regional L&D centres located at power plant projects have created almost 100-plus online learning opportunities.
