The program was officially launched through online zoom platform. This training program focuses on the usage of nonwoven in medical textile, medical and industrial filtration in the current scenario.
A one-hour informative session was organized to create awareness about the Management Development Program (MDP) among professionals and students.
The Center of Excellence of AMHSSC, Textile Association of India – Delhi Unit and the Institution of Engineers- Delhi State Center will jointly train the youth on medical textiles and protective clothing (medical) techniques and its implementation. The expert panelists for the session were Dr. Roopak Vasishtha (CEO & DG, AMHSSC), Mr. Dinesh Kumar (Chairman, Institute of Engineers India (Delhi), Mr. Ritesh from Textile Association of India – Delhi Unit and Mr. Shailesh Kaushik (Director – One North Consulting (India) Pvt.

Speaking at the session, Dr. Roopak Vasishtha (CEO & DG, AMHSSC) stated that we all are going through very hard times these days. The COVID-19 pandemic is spreading with alarming speed and it’s affecting the entire world. In such a situation, the mask and PPE kits are mostly needed to fight against this deadly virus. India is the largest apparel-producing country in the world. Companies working in the apparel sector can produce medical textiles and protective clothing with a slight change in their existing resources and training. By making the country self-reliant in this area, the country can contribute to save the lives of the people by supplying it to other countries.
Adding to it, he said that the Indian apparel export industry is working on plans to increase the production of personal protective equipment (PPE) kits and hold the largest share in the global markets. This will require trained people in this field. AMHSSC has taken initiative to prepare skilled workforce in this field through its two Centers of Excellence. The session concluded with a round of questionnaires and the dignitaries from the apparel sector answered the participants’ questions very well.
