Upon successful completion of the course, the students will receive a certification by Yamaha Technical Academy at Silver level and Gram Tarang Employability Training Services Pvt.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Ravinder Singh, Vice President, Strategy and Planning, Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt. Ltd. said "As a recognized considerate industry player, we shoulder the responsibility to empower the economically weaker sections of the society especially the youth. We have incorporated many programs in our annual calendar to make a lasting impact on the lives of these young people by making them self-reliant. We signed an MoU with Gram Tarang Employability Training Services (GTETS), Bhubaneswar, Odisha in October 2014 to develop a synergetic partnership and thereby helping deserving students find employment in the automobile sector via impartment of technical training and education. We certainly foresee recruitment opportunities for them at our own dealerships as this will help our dealers in getting quality trained manpower for their business."
