CIFT

Training Program

CIFT functions with the following objectives: to evolve innovative and cost-effective technologies for fish harvest, to develop and standardize various aspects of post-harvest technologies, to develop technologies for extraction of biomedical, pharmaceutical and industrial products from aquatic organisms, to act as a repository of information on harvest and post-harvest technologies with a systematic data base, to conduct transfer of technology through training, education and extension education programmes, and to provide consultancy services and to popularize the innovations for overall development of the fishery industry.

Training is one of the most important methods for transferring the technologies to the actual end users. CIFT organizes demand based regular and adhoc training courses for various catetgories of personnel sponsored by the industry and organizations. Training is offered to the interested entrepreneurs based on their needs from time to time.
