Facility will provide pool of qualified technicians for Porsche Centres in the emerging markets
Singapore/Manila. Porsche Asia Pacific Pte Ltd, in collaboration with PGA Cars, the Porsche importer for the Philippines, and The Don Bosco Technical Institute, are proud to announce that their joint venture, Porsche Training and Recruitment Centre Asia, is now established in the Philippines.
Under this initiative, the Don Bosco Technical Institute will provide basic technical training, and technicians who have completed this training can advance to the Porsche Training and Recruitment Centre Asia located within PGA Cars’ premises, where Porsche will provide a specialist training programme that will groom highly qualified automotive mechanics and electricians. Up to 40 students will be accepted at the Porsche Training and Recruitment Centre Asia each year. Graduates from the scheme will then be recruited for the extensive Porsche Centre network upon completion of their training.
The Porsche Training and Recruitment Centre Asia will address the increasing demand for qualified automotive technicians at Porsche Centres in emerging markets around the world.
“Recruiting qualified automotive technicians is key to providing professional support at our Porsche Centres as Porsche is a manufacturer using state-of-the-art and cutting edge technology,” said Porsche Asia Pacific Managing Director, Mr. Christer Ekberg. “Establishing the Porsche Training and Recruitment Centre Asia in the Philippines makes perfect sense as we have the full support of Don Bosco, a well-established technical training institute, as well as PGA Cars. We are certain that Porsche Training and Recruitment Centre Asia will offer a sustainable solution to meet the increasing need for qualified technicians in our Porsche Centre network.”
A total of 14 students of Don Bosco have been selected to commence their course at Porsche Training and Recruitment Centre Asia in April next year.
In addition to technical training classes, all students will need to attend mandatory English lessons throughout the training programme, as well as seminars on effective communication skills. The latter is provided by an external consultant.
