PM Modi to launch courses for 1 lakh Covid-19 workers


Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch on Friday a customised crash course programme for skilling around one lakh Covid-19 frontline workers at 111 training centres across 26 states in dealing with aspects like home care, emergency cases, sample collections and handling of medical equipment for pandemic affected patients.

The government said in a statement that the Prime Minister will launch the “Customized Crash Course programme for Covid 19 Frontline workers’ on June 18 via video conferencing. The launch will commence the programme in 111 training centres spread over 26 states. The program is an initiative of the Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Ministry.

It aims to skill and upskill over one lakh Covid warriors across the country. The training will be imparted to Covid warriors in six customised job roles- namely, Home Care Support, Basic Care Support, Advanced Care Support, Emergency Care Support, Sample Collection Support, and Medical Equipment Support.

It has been designed as a special programme under the Central Component of Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana 3.0, with a total financial outlay of Rs. 276 Crore. The programme will create skilled non-medical healthcare workers to fill the present and future needs of manpower in the health sector.

The pandemic has created the need for more health workers and the Prime Minister had earlier called for using the services of final year MBBS students, nurses, and ASHA workers in dealing with the crisis.
