The Director General of the National Automotive Design and Development Council, Joseph Osanipin, has urged the Auto Sector Skills Council to employ the usage of advanced technological tools in the regulation of operational standards that would enhance auto mechatronics training in Nigeria.
He gave this advice in the recent Sector Skills Council Awareness/Sensitisation Workshop for the Northern Zone which was jointly organized by NADDC and SSC in Abuja.
According to a statement by Osanipin, the significance of incorporating current technological advancements in the automotive sector was emphasized.
He highlighted the transformation of the auto industry over the past few decades, emphasizing the critical role of training.
He urged participants to enhance their skills by utilizing the necessary training curriculum which has been made available by the council.
The DG said, “The way the auto industry worked 30, 40 years ago is no longer the way it works today; and the key element is training.“The council realised this and partnered with SSC to identify gaps, with a particular focus on addressing challenges in electrical and electronics.”
The President of the Automotive Sector Skill Council, Francis Udeh expressed satisfaction with the workshop, pointing out its significance in awareness creation amongst members in lieu with the commitment of the current administration to enhance the automotive sector.
