Vocational Training Center with Trakia Economic Zone is Now Open

The Vocational Training Center with Trakia Economic Zone has been started with the view to meet the demand for bespoke skilled workforce training and retraining of the existing and new employees. In addition, one of the main goal is to improve access to modern facilities for proffecional secondary schools and updating and adapting to modern industry of schools training programs

The Center is equipped by expert vocational training systems by foremost world companies such as SMC, Schneider Electric, ABB, Dassault Systèmes, etc.

The methodologies orchestrating the courses take bespoke consideration of the specific demand of the production facilities within the said Zone, and have been developed  to implement the best training practices of the companies involved.

The training curriculum draws upon the expertise, the long years of proficiency plus the modern concepts of the world companies, which are each in the forefront in their relevant industry. Moreover, the Vocational Training Center engages into the development of new courses and tailoring the existing ones given every specific case so as to live up to the particular demand of every single facility within the Zone.

The studies are held on the ground of the training center in its various process labs.  The Center is supplied with mobile training stands which allow for flexibility whenever need be so the training could easily be transferred on the ground of the particular facility (such as on-the-spot training).

Both teachers and trainers responsible for the courses are either experts in their area and practitioners with a university or a school, or technical specialists cognizant and knowledgeable in their specific industry vested with relevant skills and experience.

The Vocational Training Center project is essentially an OPEN one which is to suggest that each facility within the Zone is invited to get directly involved in specifying and supplying the technical equipment, such as resources, devices, simulators, equally so to instruct the development and the delivery of customized training courses  with the view to supply its specific training demand. The Vocational Training Center within the Zone promises to arrange for the laboratory place needed, to supply the trainers, and to set up the training course.
