First edition of the lineman training centre (LMTC) training manual was released by engineer-in-chief of Power, Er. G Chishi in the presence of officers and staff of the department at the LMTC premises, Dimapur on October 12. 

A press release from superintendent engineer (E), Er. Moa Aier, stated that Er. G Chishi, in his manual release speech, stated that all fresh recruits shall be trained, which will be a departmental policy. He further claimed that work charge staff would not be regularized unless they possessed LMTC certificate. 
Er. Chishi also said that over the years LMTC rather than getting built up, was deteriorating due to lack of funds as there was no budgeted head for trainings and LMTC. However, he assured that all efforts would be made to change the scenario and challenged all officers to have a positive attitude and try to contribute in a positive manner for department and in public service. He had also directed all working divisions to make some resource contribution towards LMTC development to create awareness within the department of importance of training and of LMTC.
Er. K K Awomi, stated that power sector, utilities were now moving towards preventive maintenance while “we” are still stuck in mode of line restoration attempts only after breakdowns. He encouraged that through proper training, power department should also now try to move towards preventive maintenance. 
CE (T&G), Er. Shikato, earlier observed that trainings in LMTC were taken more seriously, but over the past few years, it had deteriorated and stated that it was however time to be rejuvenated. He further stated that when staff were sent for training, they should not see it as a punishment, but rather, facility and quality of training should be such that, they should look forward to being sent for training. He committed that physical infrastructure of LMTC shall be improved. 
SE (MIS), Er. B Tiameren stated that unless field stafs were trained properly, they would be unable to function effectively, because “little knowledge” becomes dangerous in form of accidents and poor service. He also mentioned that technology was fast changing especially in IT, therefore department should also keep pace with proper training, and LMTC should also be equipped to provide IT training.  
President, ANEFWA, Dimapur zone, Ghonito Chishi, speaking on behalf of field workers, stated that about 50% of field staffs were untrained and that due to shortage of field staff, many divisional engineers were unwilling to spare them to be sent for training. 
The programme was chaired by SE (E) Dimapur, Er. Moa Aier, and vote of thanks proposed by SDO (E) LMTC, Er. Albert Ovung. A special number was also presented by Hekaholi.
