The institute conducts around 30-35 regular training programmes including the custom made programs every year, encompassing all the major areas in Food Science and Technology. These courses are of short duration, but intensive and packed with lectures and demonstrations. These courses are handled by faculty members having vast experience in specific areas of Food Science and Technology. The demonstrations and practical classes are conducted in the state-of-the-art laboratories and pilot plants of CSIR-CFTRI. Trainees are given a certificate at the end of the course.
Due to its short duration and condensed, focussed and capsulated syllabus, the 3-day and 5-day courses are well received by students, academicians, the employed and entrepreneurs who are unable to spare more time.
