Industrial Training Centres or Information Technology Centres (ITC's) are self-financing institutions and provide the same courses as ITI's. Though technically, there isn’t much difference in the respect of courses and diplomas. The certificate issued by the institute for and ITC course can be a private (reputed) intuition or governing body, whereas for an ITI course it is generally Government certification.
As ITI and ITC are both closely linked, both graduates can choose from two options, either to work from the office (that is a technical job) or they can start teaching on their own. Non-technical jobs include many teaching, training or assisting jobs. While technical jobs include programming, hardware, software and operation.
The best way to apply for Industrial Training in the ITC sector is through joining a reputed institution and during the course, you are supposed to take part in industrial training. This provides ample practical exposure and prepares the candidate for future jobs. After completing the course, candidates can apply through the HR or Placement cell of their institution for joining various industries.
