EDUCATION & TRAINING

ICAR - Central Tuber Crops Research Institute is a recognized centre by the Digital University of Kerala, Odisha University of Agriculture & Technology(OUAT), SOA (Siksha 'O' Anusandhan) Deemed to be university,Manonmaniyam Sundaranar University for undertaking Doctoral programme. Several of the Scientists of ICAR-CTCRI have been recognized as Research Guides by these universities. Similarly, the Regional Centre at Bhubaneswar, Odisha is recognized by Utkal University for taking up Ph.D. programme.

ICAR-CTCRI also imparts 1-2 months hands-on training especially in the fields of bio-technology and microbiology to Undergraduate and Postgraduate students leading to submission of dissertation as a part of course curriculam.

In addition, the Institute offers training on specific areas to individuals on request for a period of few weeks to few months. Sponsored training programmes of 8-10 days duration to extension personnel of state development departments are regularly organized as a capacity building activity on tropical tuber crops.

Farmers, farm women, extension personnel and students are given 1-2 days training on tuber crops which are sponsored by various agencies. The members of the women self help groups (SHG) are given hands-on training for 2 days on the preparation of value added products from tuber crops.ICAR-CTCRI will offer training on various aspects of tuber crops for different clienteles on request basis.

ICAR-CTCRI is also a recognized centre for imparting training to students under RAWE programme of Kerala Agricultural University and to ARS probationers for Field Experience Training (FET) under FOCARS programme.
