NIUA-CIDCO Smart City Lab launches Ujjwal Training Portal

On 5th July, 2017, NIUA-CIDCO Smart City Lab launched Ujjwal, CIDCO’s first customized training portal. Its purpose is to aid the implementation of CIDCO’s new Training Policy. The Training Policy was approved by the CIDCO Board as a step towards overcoming barriers to training and knowledge enhancement for all Class I & Class II CIDCO officers. Ujjwal is an integrated platform that provides access to a wide choice of managerial, technical and behavioural courses from world-class institutes, through a user-friendly interface. It can be accessed at https://cidco-smartcity.niua. org/ujjwal.

NIUA-CIDCO Smart City Lab Training Cell is driving the propagation of the training portal across the multiple departments within CIDCO. As a part of this effort, it is conducting training sessions titled ‘Samwaad’ in every department within CIDCO. In the three weeks since its launch, the portal has already registered 25% of its expected users. Out of which 50% have registered their interest for participating in trainings and 80% have been confirmed for participation.
