NSDC International collaborates with Acuvisor to train 1 lakh youth

NEW DELHI: With an aim to build a tech-enabled salesforce, National Skill Development Corporation International (NSDCI), subsidiary of the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and Acuvisor Insurance Brokers (India) announced their collaboration to skill India’s youth by training them to become Point of Sale Persons (POSP) through Acuvisor’s mobile application.
Acuvisor and NSDCI will work towards creating a skill ecosystem that will benefit 1 Lakh youth, across the country. NSDCI will leverage the application to train, certify, and effectively employ India’s youth in Tier-II and Tier-III cities, as well as rural geographies.
Acuvisor’s partnership with NSDCI aims to provide India’s youth with an Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) recognised certification, enabling them to access livelihood opportunities while increasing insurance penetration across India’s most uninsured markets. Besides, the partnership will also extend the trained individuals an opportunity to start their own ventures and embark on an entrepreneurial journey in the insurance sector.
The Acuvisor mobile application aims to create well-trained PoSPs, who will be allowed to sell only specifically designed insurance products. Introduced in 2016 by IRDAI, PoSPs are like insurance agents, who require minimum education of Class-X and 15 hours of training.
