Japan-India Institute for Manufacturing

  • The JIM Scheme is a training-oriented skill development accreditation program of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) of the Government of Japan in India. It enables Japanese companies (those that have 50% or more Japanese holding) to initiate a pre-planned training program within their company for non-employees as "trainees" that consists of a combined curriculum that has both on-the-job training (OJT) and soft-skills training and that lasts a minimum of at least 1 year. Trainees receive a JIM certification upon the completion of the JIM program. Several Japanese companies in India have been accredited as a JIM and are experiencing the improvement of both technical and soft-skills amongst their trainees.

  • Concepts and skills of Japanese manufacturing must be taught from the basic level to the practical level. Skills training must also be provided.
