Pondicherry: The Labour Department will next month launch courses on modern fishing and marine engineering in a bid to improve the skills of fishermen.

The two courses, each of one-year duration, `Modern Fishing' and `Mechanic Marine Engines' will be started at Nonankuppam, Health and Labour Minister of Pondicherry E. Valsaraj said.

He was inaugurating a five-day training camp for women to augment their behavioural skills management at Oulgaret near here on Thursday.

He said that the Franco-Indian Vocational Training Institute here would also start a six-month course on `Bio Medical technician' and a one-year course on `Bio Medical Engineering.' Candidates completing the course are assured of placement by a private company in Malaysia.
