MTU Maintenance announces the official opening of its training center at the service provider’s Zhuhai location in China.
The central focus of the center will be the training and education of new recruits in engine maintenance and professional training in disassembly, assembly and repair. It will have the capacity to train up to 100 participants a year. Upon completion, participants are then taken on to work in the shops at MTU Maintenance.
“We are very proud to be opening our center and expanding our existing training program significantly with this dedicated area for trainers and trainees,” Gert Wagner, President and CEO of MTU Maintenance Zhuhai, says. “It is of utmost importance to MTU to secure a steady influx of well-educated technical personnel and with this center, we are ensuring that for both our existing and new locations as we grow.” MTU Maintenance Zhuhai is currently constructing a second engine disassembly and assembly facility in neighboring Jinwan district. The new training center will serve the needs of both sites.
“This training center is a key element of our strategy to remain a top-level employer and service provider in the region’s aviation market,” Wagner adds. Housed in a brand-new three-story building at the present Zhuhai site, the facility’s main floor has ten stations equipped with whole engines, engine modules and practice tables. On the second and third floors, trainees can make use of meeting rooms, an English language lab and study areas to prepare for their technical examinations.
