CEPs are an important activity of the institute for the realisation of its mission and vision, and are of two categories.
The first category of programmes are organisation-specific/ client-specific, and are designed and delivered as per the special requirements of individual organisations for their promoters, members, employees, and others identified by the organisations. DMI has already started working on CEPs for three of its major partners.
The second category of programmes are designed by the faculty of DMI, based on their interests and initiative to meet the needs of organisations associated with DMI. Such open programmes are communicated months in advance of their planned dates, to help the organisations sponsor the people to participate in them.
The CEPs range in duration from a few days to a few weeks, depending upon their scope, and may be conducted in-house at DMI or at a venue chosen by its client organisation.
