I am a stone carver and there are very few programs available for us. The training was very interactive. The knowledge given to us about health and safety was particularly useful. This training has provided a new perspective into new and cost effective ways of marketing.
I have been working as a Stone Carving Artisan for the last 10 years, but I have never been able to participate in a program like the RPL training given by IL& FS Skills, and Handicrafts and Carpet Sector Skill Council under the PMKVY scheme. This training has provided with the knowledge on new products that can be made out of stone with help of mechanized hand-tools.
