Luxury car maker Mercedes-Benz
India has inaugurated the unique ‘Advanced Auto Body Repair Training Centre’ in
association with Don Bosco ITI, Chinchwad. The Training Centre is aimed at
equipping ambitious youngsters with advanced technical skill-sets enabling them
to pursue a successful career in the highly competitive automotive service
sector. The inauguration of the Advanced Auto Body Repair Centre will also give
a significant boost to the demand of highly skilled and technically adept
manpower, which can play a crucial role in bringing service excellence to the
service sector of the automotive industry. The centre was jointly inaugurated
by Roland Folger, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz India and Fr. Godfrey
D’souza, Salesian Provincial, Mumbai - in the presence of Santosh Iyer, Vice
President, After-Sales & Retail Training, Mercedes-Benz India and Fr.
Corils Gonsalves, Director Don Bosco Private ITI in Chinchwad.
The selected candidates will
get an opportunity to hone their technical skill sets with the help of the
latest equipment including a Mercedes-Benz car provided by the company. This
one-of-its-kind course identifies itself with the vision of “Skill India” which
aims at utilizing the youth demographics and create skilled workers at this
Training Centre. Mercedes-Benz India has spent a total of Rs 26.5 million on
Inaugurating the Training
Centre, Roland Folger, Managing Director and CEO, Mercedes-Benz India said,
“India is rich in its manpower, but opportunities and facilities that train and
gainfully employ them are by far, few. On the other hand, growth in the
automotive industry, changing technology, a burgeoning economy, a larger disposable
income and lowering first hand life-cycle of cars have triggered huge demand
for skilled technicians and that of upskilling in the sector. Mercedes-Benz has
been the pioneers in providing employment to talented young heads over a decade
now, by introducing them to the Advanced Diploma in Automotive Mechatronics
course by collaborating with various reputed technical institutions. We have
been conducting these programmes with very high levels of success, and the
overwhelming response from the aspiring students has inspired us to expand our
skill sharing initiatives further. The inauguration of the Advanced Body Repair
Training Centre in Don Bosco is yet another commitment from Mercedes-Benz to
develop highly skilled manpower for the industry, thus contributing to the
vision of ‘Skill India’.”
