PMKVY 4.0 has two components – Special Project (SP-STT) and Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Under SP-STT, candidates will undergo skill training for a duration of hours mentioned in the Qualification Pack, and under RPL, candidates will be assessed and certified for their existing skills.
Special Project: PMKVY 4.0 Special Projects is an initiative under the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) 4.0 scheme launched by the Government of India. The Special Projects aim to provide skill training to candidates in specific sectors that require special attention and skill development.
The training provided under these projects will be tailored to meet the specific requirements of the respective sectors, and the curriculum will be developed in collaboration with industry experts.
The PMKVY 4.0 Special Projects will focus on skill training in areas such as emerging technologies, soft skills, entrepreneurship, and digital literacy, among others. The training will be provided through a network of industry partners, who will be selected based on their expertise and experience in the respective sectors.

The certification provided under this scheme will help candidates secure better employment opportunities, and the skills they possess will be recognized by potential employers, leading to better career prospects.
