With a view to cater to the training needs of officers and staff, ONGC has already set up ONGC Academy at Dehradun and four Skill Development Centers at Vadodara, Mumbai, Chennai and Sibsagar. Apart from imparting training, ONGC also focuses on developing in-house resources to take up the mantle of trainers. These training institutes have many officers who are offering their services as faculty.
