Training

Background

Training is a process of continuous learning. Through the training programs, the organization is trying to impart knowledge and skills to the staff from different disciplines. MITTRA conducts training programs at its training centres situated at Peint, Nashik district and Jawhar, Thane district. Both the training centres are well equipped with the necessary lodging, boarding and teaching-learning facilities like LCD and laptop computers and other equipment.
Both the centres are situated in a natural environment which is conducive for learning. Both the training campuses are backed by the demonstrations of training topics, field plots for experimentation and trials techniques like organic farming, germ plasm and cultivation of aromatic crops.
MITTRA Training Division was established as an independent unit in April 2006 . Presently, different types of trainings are held at Jawhar and Peith Training campuses. These cater to the needs of co-learning, capacity building and developing a knowledge base in the context of rural development.
