CNH Industrial extends its TechPro² training program in China to the Xinjiang region
First launched globally within CNH Industrial in 2011, the mission of the TechPro² program is to support local communities by providing young people with advanced technical training to give them the skills and tools they will need for a bright future in the industrial sector. With the setup of this new program CNH Industrial’s educational partner Yizhong Edulife is cooperating with the local government to establish a local Yizhong Edulife branch to manage the training operations in Xinjiang.
This new program will start with the Xinjiang Agricultural Vocational Technical College located in Changji and eventually extend to its four entrusted vocational schools in South Xinjiang. Training will be organized into two classes and a total of 55 students will be admitted to this first cycle of three years. Students who successfully complete the course and attain the relevant certification will qualify for professional placements through CNH Industrial and its network of workshops in China, including joint-ventures.
This new program extends CNH Industrial’s TechPro² training offer in China to three bases, with two existing programs already in operation, respectively in Changshan, Zhejiang Province for commercial vehicles (established in 2014) and in Yanji, Jilin Province for agricultural equipment (established in 2016).
CNH Industrial has a long history in China dating back to the beginning of the 20th century, when the first tractors were imported to the Heilongjiang Province. Including its joint-ventures, the Company counts some 9,000 employees and six manufacturing plants, operating across all of its four industrial business segments: agricultural equipment (Case IH and New Holland Agriculture), construction equipment (CASE and New Holland Construction), commercial vehicles (IVECO, IVECO ASTRA and Magirus) and Powertrain (FPT Industrial).
