NEW DELHI: India is fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic and the first line of workers is already engaged in COVID relief and doing a commendable job. However, a larger force will be needed to replace the first line and to tackle the exponential or geometric increase in positive COVID cases in the subsequent stages of the pandemic. Accordingly, to take care of the training needs of the frontline workers, Government of India has launched a training module for management of COVID-19 named “Integrated Govt Online Training” (iGOT) portal on Ministry of HRD’s DIKSHA platform for the capacity building of frontline workers to handle the pandemic efficiently.

Courses on iGOT have been launched for doctors, nurses, paramedics, hygiene workers, technicians, auxiliary nursing midwives (ANMs), State government officers, civil defense officers, various police organizations, National Cadet Corps (NCC), Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan (NYKS), National Service Scheme, Indian Red Cross Society, Bharat Scouts and Guides and other volunteers.

The portal website link is https://igot.gov.in/igot/. The DIKSHA platform will provide the training module on flexitime and on-site basis so that the COVID response can be delivered at scale for the workforce needed to tackle the pandemic.
