CFTI to expand footwear training activities in Tamil Nadu

Chennai-based Central Footwear Training Institute (CFTI) is planning to expand its footprints in Tamil Nadu state through training and employment opportunities and offering its services to the industry. It is offering seven long-term and eight short-term courses in manufacturing and design, footwear technology and allied fields, director K Murali said recently.

Over ₹750 crore has been allocated for development of human resources in the footwear industry and CFTI is planning to train about 700 for an upcoming leather unit in Chittoor in short-term courses as part of an outreach programme, he told a press conference. The outreach programme aims at helping industries get skilled workforce.

If more units are set up at the leather cluster announced by Tamil Nadu, CFTI will set up an institute to train and produce skilled workers and professionals, he added.
