MechaniK TV, a technology skills initiative for automotive technicians, has entered into a strategic partnership with the Automotive Skills Development Council (ASDC) to stimulate the skills upgrading of mechanics in the aftermarket.
The platform will launch India’s first purely online Hindi-language advanced two-wheeler training BS6, which is expected to go live on November 1, MechaniK TV said in a statement on Thursday.
The independent Auto Mechanics Technical Skills Platform offers Hindi video technical training for modern two-wheeler and car maintenance.
The partnership will initially revolve around the development of content for vehicles powered by hydrocarbons. Over time, it is also expected to produce certification programs that will allow independent aftermarket mechanics to maintain electric vehicles and their ecosystem as well, the statement said.
The platform said the collaboration stemmed from the need to provide a massive push to upgrade the skills of mechanics in the independent aftermarket.
This partnership will help both sides to develop high quality training and certification programs in regional languages ââand make them available to a large number of mechanics on their smartphones through the MechaniK TV Android app, he said. -he adds.
Launched in April 2020 by T7E Aftermarket Connect Pvt Ltd, the start-up said its app has been downloaded by around 50,000 mechanics across India so far.
MechaniK TV, thanks to its carefully curated technical content, has already enabled thousands of two-wheeler mechanics across the country to be able to service BS6 bikes without any formal training.
“The partnership with ASDC will allow us to bring structure and credibility to the training,” said Rajeev Radhakrishnan, co-founder of MechaniK TV.
He said the company hopes to reach 10,000 two-wheeler mechanics over the next 12 months with the new course. âOver time, we hope to produce more high quality training content for our audience with the help of ASDC. National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), ASDC is a sector skills council for the automotive industry, which aims to make the country self-sufficient to support the growth and competitiveness of the automotive industry.
With this partnership, we aim to close the skills and employability gap among roadside mechanics.
These m-learning courses will help them diagnose and troubleshoot vehicle systems and components. This will allow them to learn new technologies and emission systems to better serve their customers, âsaid Arindam Lahiri, CEO of ASDC.
The board looks forward to providing solutions to improve the technical skill set of mechanics with the help of MechaniK TV, he added.
