Apex School of Dialysis Technology (ASDT), an education and training department of Apex Kidney Care, was formed to train students to become dialysis technologists.
ASDT faculty comprises of eminent professionals from the field of nephrology, vascular surgery, dialysis technology, water treatment technology, biomedical engineering, management, soft skill training, dietetics and nutrition.
It has an excellent air-conditioned classroom with high tech audio visual equipment.
Students enrolled with ASDT have an access to a large number of dialysis patients for hands on training, giving them an ample opportunity to learn about the functioning of the machine, day to day maintenance and patient care.
AKC has collaborated with Tata Institute of Social Sciences- School of Vocational Education (TISS- SVE) to offer a diploma and bachelor degree courses in dialysis technology.
AKC is Vertical Anchor for Dialysis Technology in TISS-SEV training program, AKC has developed course content for TISS-SVE courses.
In December 2011, Tata Institute of Social Sciences set up the School of Vocational Education (SVE) to provide immediate and definite interventions to improve the skill levels of millions of youth, through appropriate vocational training programmes. The target beneficiaries include organized and unorganized workforce across the industries and SVE aims to cover every individual who needs to develop employable skills. A vision of creating an ecosystem that would bring back the dignity of labour to all professions and occupations to create sustainable sources of income for the blue collar workforce and youth in the country.
AIM: To give the students a platform to learn the skills by engaging in on-the-job training at the real shop floor of the industry/company along with theory training in the classroom. Through the model, the trainee may also earn a modest stipend during on-the-job training of the course. Although this is not mandatory for any institution, TISS-SVE strongly encourages its Skill Knowledge Providers (SKPs) to adopt this practice.
