With frequent innovations and technology development in industry, engineering institutions need to be updated on content and pedagogy so that the same can make the fresh engineering graduates employable. Teachers need to develop themselves and if they are not then it becomes duty of engineering institutions. Acquiring knowledge being complicated and expensive, the institutions must play this role comprehensively. The HRD practices mainly responsible for development of human resource are training for which ingredient is found through performance appraisal and training and development is supported by knowledge management. This paper tries to find out the extent of training and development practices for teachers in institutions. For this, the subjects were assistant professors, associate professors and professors teaching engineering students and the same subject are categorized as male and female. The opinions about training practices were found and later the statuses of opinion difference were established. Designation and gender wise, the teachers were asked questions through structured and closed ended questionnaire with five point liker scale. Through convenient sampling, proportional sample is drawn. The opinions of teachers were derived using mean value. Various hypotheses were created regarding opinion difference and later using t – test, hypotheses was tested. Opinions of all the members of both category were similar and no difference in opinion were found between any category members. The overall findings suggest that in perception of teachers teaching in engineering colleges in Chhattisgarh, there is very poor practice of training for the faculty members and there is no difference of opinions between any category members.
