It is not only foreign governments that are nodding approval to Ayurveda and Ayurveda related products and services. After the news about the Swiss government’s nod to Ayurveda practitioners, now comes news of the Maharashtra government’s approval of an Ayurvedic Industrial Training course to be recognized by the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS) and to be offered at the Maharashtra Ayurved Center (MAC).

The fellowship course, which will be offered from August 2015, aims to enhance the skill sets of practitioners and also promote entrepreneurship in the Ayurveda industry.
MAC is funded by the Ayush ministry and is part of Pune’s Ayush cluster at Kolewadi. This center processes raw materials for the industry and supplies standradised, graded and certified raw materials in bulk to aryurvedic manufacturing houses all over Maharashtra. Hereafter, Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine & Surgery (BAMS) and Pharmacy students can add to their skill sets by taking advantage of the Ayurveda Industrial Training courses offered at this center. The new skill sets, which includes hands on training with the newest techniques and machines in manufacturing ayurvedic medicines, certifying and processing raw materials, proper handling, packaging and storing of drugs, and a detailed knowledge of legal and FDA licensing aspects opens up a whole new world of career opportunities for Ayurveda students. They can venture into diverse fields related to Ayurveda, besides practicing medicine or seek employment in the industry in various posts.
With the enormous amount of attention that Ayurveda is garnering at home and at a global level, there is going to be an increased demand for both manpower and certified raw materials to manufacture drugs and the course will ready students to meet the requirements of consumers of Ayurvedic drugs.
Applications are invited by the Ayurvedic Industrial Training Centre from eligible candidates for the Ayurvedic Raw Material Identification, Storage, Processing and Packaging (FCARMISPP) and Ayurvedic Drug Manufacturing (FCADM) for the academic year 2015-2016. Both are 12-month Fellowship Courses. The course fees is Rs.40,000 per year. The number of available seats for each course is five.
