To be equipped with role-specific training modules to effectively combat COVID-19

Necessary course details already shared with all  HODs, DCs and MDs

 CHANDIGARH: Gearing up for the next stage in the fight against corona virus, the Punjab Government has equipped nearly 22000 employees from across the state with various role-specific training modules on iGOT platform to fight COVID-19 pandemic far more efficaciously, thus paving the way for preparing an army of corona warriors.

Disclosing this here today, a spokesperson of the State Personnel department said that the course details and relevant instructions on registration and accessing online training module have been circulated to all Heads of the Departments, Deputy Commissioners & Managing Directors of Boards and Corporations in the state, with directions to all the state government employees to take role-specific iGOT training on https://igot.gov.in/igot/, an initiative by the Union Ministry of Personnel, and upload the document/certificate regarding completion of training on iHRMS portal. This would help the state government to have complete data on course-wise trainings undertaken by the employees, who could be further deployed by the government as and when need arises for trained manpower for containment duties amid COVID-19.

Pointing out further, the spokesperson said the threat of Corona (COVID-19) epidemic has been looming large over India. The country's first line of health defence is fighting hard to contain the spread of Coronavirus in an exemplary fashion. As this fight moves ahead, significantly more manpower would be needed to combat this epidemic, not only for the purposes of deployment in new areas but also for replacing frontline workers as fatigue sets in.

The Spokesman said that these courses are relevant for different departments which are looking after specific aspects of the fight against COVID. The course content is a mix of videos, PDFs and question sets for practice. iGOT (Integrated Government Online Training) is an online platform developed by the Union Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, for doctors, nurses, paramedics, hygiene workers, technicians, auxiliary nursing midwives (ANMs), State Government Officers, Civil Defence Officials, NCC, Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan, NSS, Indian Red Cross Society, Bharat Scouts and Guides to undergo online training so as to effectively handle the corona virus pandemic.
