CNH Industrial, in cooperation with Zhejiang Yizhong Education Consulting Ltd., and with the support of its brand Iveco, launches a training program dedicated to industrial vehicles. The TechPro2 program will offer young students in China’s Zhejiang Province with an opportunity for professional growth and the development of technical skills.

This follows the signing of a sponsorship agreement between the company and Yizhong Education. This is the first edition of the TechPro2 training program to be introduced in China and is part of a nationwide initiative by CNH Industrial that will subsequently see the initiation of similarly-structured programs throughout China.

Based on the past successes that the TechPro2 program has had in other countries, the goal of this initiative in China is to lay foundations for countrywide skills specialization in the automotive sector, with a specific professional development program for the industrial vehicles sector in China.

The TechPro2 program at the Changshan Vocational Secondary School will train 101 students and 13 teachers over the course of three years. The training sessions will be held on the school’s new campus located on the northern bank of Changshan Harbor.
