The National Skill Trainers Institute is pioneer unit of Directorate General of Training, Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, Govt. of India.  The history of the Institute for Instructors dates back to 1957, when it was started as ‘Central Training Institute for Instructors’ at Aundh, Pune. In the year 1963 the institute was shifted to present premises of Mumbai and had the unique privilege of being inaugurated by our first Prime Minister, the late Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru on March 20, 1963.  The training then was confined to Craft Instructors Programmes.  

Subsequently in 1967, when chemical trades where ordained under Apprentices Act 1961, a Basic Training Centre to impart basic training and related instructions was started in 1970 for chemical trade apprentices, to contribute towards industrial development of the nation.  Advanced Vocational Training System(AVTS) was launched jointly by the Govt. of India, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and International Labour Organisation (ILO) in 1977 in catering to the need of the industries to augment the rapid changing technology.  The training activities were revamped to make more effective and the Institute was upgraded and renamed as Advanced Training Institute in May, 1982.

The Institute has completed 50 glorious years in skill building for our nation by conducting short term and long term courses.  Many industrial establishments, institutions and organisations have utilised the technical know-how and expertise of this Institute and have achieved higher qualitative production and continue to depute their existing workforce for retraining and skill gap training.

The faculty of the institute are experts, possess vast experience and are trained in latest technology in the relevant field in India and abroad. The training programmes are so designed by identifying the industrial needs of mechanical, electrical, electronics and chemical sectors by our officers in consultation with industry experts and individuals through level structured training programme so that at the end all trainees will be competent enough with the skills acquired that are required for the wage and self-employment.  

In our endeavour, the training needs of micro, small, medium and large enterprises both in Government and private sectors are continuously availing the benefits. This institute has well equipped classrooms, labs, workshop, dispensary and very well maintained garden area. The institute is located at V. N. Purav Marg, Opp. Priyadarshini (RCF), Chunabhatti, Sion, Mumbai-400022. This institute has achieved glorious milestones during the tenure of existing Regional Director Shri C. S. Murthy
