The Archdiocese of Ernakulam – Angamaly occupies a prominent position in the history of the Syro-Malabar church which has got strength of 40 Lakhs of people. It comprises 7 Taluks and spreads out in the districts of Alappuzha, Ernakulam, Kottayam, and Thrissur in Kerala State. At Present Cardinal George Alanchery (Our Patron) is the head and father of this church. Mar Sebastian Adayanthrath (our chairman) is his Auxiliary Bishop.
Viani Printings is an undertaking of this Archdiocese. It is the long cherished desire of the Late Cardinal Joseph Perecattil, which is actualized in the year 1966. Now we are happy to announce the new venture, namely – Viani Institute of Advanced printing technology, as a continuation of the printing school started in the year 1967.
As we all know one of the difficulties our nation faces is unemployment. This government has already initiated modular employable skill (MES) courses to solve this problem. Joining with the Government and other various agencies in this area, we undertake this new venture, under the banner of Vi-APT, comprising Graphics, Plate making, Printings and Blinding.
Vi-APT offers the following courses.
1. C.P.T(Certification in Printing Technology) – Admission Open
2. D.P.T ( diploma in Printing Technology) – Launching Soon
3. A.D.P.T ( Advanced Diploma in Printing Technology) – Launching Soon
4. B.P.T ( Bachelor in Printings Technology) – Launching Soon
Our Vision and Mission
The ultimate aim of education is human refinement. The objective of education is to form a society and iindivituals into a positive work culture. So the educational process expected in and outside our formal school should concentrate upon inculcating concepts, abilities, attitudes and values in tune with this work culture. Every educational process should be vacationalized. Modular employable skills are congenial to all. Taking this advantage we offer MES courses in Christian atmosphere giving importance for the social values especially to social dropouts, economically backward and marginalized.
Students after successful completion in printings technology courses have ample job opportunities here and abroad. Generally, the students are recruited through campus interviews by the major advertising agencies, news papers, magazines, machine manufactures, packing industries, local printings presses and all leading publishers. In Ernakulam itself there are around 60 printing presses, which are in difficulty as they do not get sufficient skilled workers.
At present many of the academic and non academic courses require the minimum qualification of S S L C. Because of this the number of unemployed school dropout’s increases day by day. Anybody of the age of 15 or above can seek admission in this printing institute and equip themselves easly to gain the employable skills. We don’t restrict qualification for any course except BPT (Minimum Plus Two).
At present the Viani Printings is one of the major full-fledged printing presses in the state of Kerala itself. We have the sufficient infrastructure and a wide network of other printing presses all through Kerala to support training and placement.
Viani Printings is a registered charitable undertaking of the Archdiocese of Ernakulam-Angamaly. The Archbishop of Ernakulam-Angamaly will be the Patron and the Auxiliary Bishop will be the chairman of the board of directors. Board of directors will select the deserving students for further scholarships.
Our Institution have been working in collaboration with all the major international and national manufactures and suppliers like MITSUBISHI, MANUGRAPH, FUJI, PROTECK, HEIDELBERG, HMT, ABDICK, XEROX, CANON, WELBOUND, GODREJ, TECHNOVA, BOTCHER, DIC, NEWSTECK, MANROLAND, TNPL, BILT, HNL, NEVIA,…… We have ensured the participation and sponsorship of these firms in training and development of our accademic endeavour.
