The centre was shifted to the present premises in 1998. Since then the centre is catering to the training needs in various areas of Technical Teachers in Polytechnics and Engineering Colleges in the state of Maharashtra. The centre has extended its services to the Directorate of Technical Education, Mumbai; Maharashtra State Board of Technical Examination, Mumbai and various other technical education institutions in the state.
