Mission V: Training And Capacity Building
The development and effective deployment of human resources is crucial for continued growth, improved performance and achieving programmatic goals for a reputed scientific organization like GSI. GSI Training Institute constantly strives to impart the desired knowledge and field expertise amongst geoscientific officers of all streams of the department as well as from other Central and State Government offices. It is the principal agency for capacity building in earth sciences in India.
Although scientific streams remain in focus, training needs of the personnel engaged in other important activities like administration, finance, material management and drilling are also taken care of. Training programmes have been drawn after assessing the training needs of GSI, state DGMs and other stake holders.
Apart from headquartered at Hyderabad, GSI Training Institute (GSITI) has six Regional Training Institutes (RTI) operational at six Regional Headquarters and twelve Field Training Centers (FTC).
