Over 100 graduate at JAT Pintharoo Shilpee Abhiman convocation ceremony

16 October, 2022

JAT Pintharoo Shilpee Abhiman is a pioneering program that was launched by JAT Holdings PLC, a company dealing in wood coatings, in partnership with the National Apprentice Industrial Training Authority (NAITA), to uplift the industry and to help promising painters and carpenters build their lives and hone their craft, by providing these skilled but uncertified individuals with a formal certification in their field of work.

NAITA has provided over 100 painters and woodcraftsmen, identified by JAT Holdings, with an NVQ Level 3 Wood Craftsman (Wood Finisher) Certification, upon the successful completion of an examination conducted by NAITA under this program.

The painters and woodcraftsmen, made up of seven batches that successfully completed the program, were formally presented with their certifications at the JAT Pintharoo Shilpee Abhiman Convocation Ceremony, at the JAT Holdings auditorium recently.

Individuals who obtained the NVQ Level 3 Certification, and who are also members of the JAT Loyalty Program, are eligible to apply for a loan from HDFC bank to further their business interests. One such eligible painter/woodcraftsmen obtained the first such loan under this program, which was disbursed to him at the Convocation.

The Vice Chairman and representatives of NAITA, the Chairman of HDFC Bank, key representatives of the bank and senior members of JAT Holdings’ corporate management team, including Founder/Managing Director, JAT Holdings, Aelian Gunawardene and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Nishal Ferdinando.

CEO of JAT Holdings, Nishal Ferdinando said, “Our market leader position has been achieved by our passion for excellence. One way we have consistently achieved excellence is by constantly uplifting the industry by creating opportunities for skilled individuals, recognising them, rewarding them and cheering them on as they hone their skills and deliver increasingly exceptional quality.

“To achieve this, we have launched a comprehensive loyalty program in the form of JAT Pintharoo Shilpee Abhiman, and this partnership with NAITA and HDFC builds on the work we have already been doing. Therefore, it gives us great pride to congratulate the new graduates and we look forward to seeing even higher quality work from them in the future, as they build their skills and create value,” he said.

JAT Pintharoo Shiplee Abhiman is a three-phase, long-term initiative by JAT Holdings to help formalize the industry, increase professionalism, and identify and promote talent and skill, while supporting innovation and growth.

Phase One included the “JAT Loyalty” program, the first-ever loyalty program in the industry to offer loyalty points that can be directly converted to cash or used to fund savings, through a collaboration with Commercial Bank of Ceylon PLC, and the exclusive JAT Commercial Bank Debit Card.
