The school year at the Mercedes-Benz Academy in Kecskemét started with a professional camp. The event in Parád was attended by 72 students, who, together with the qualified trainers of the training center, prepared every day exciting tasks. The students got to know each other, and via the different games, they saw how they could work together as members of the toolmaking, mechatronic-maintenance, automotive mechatronic, bodywork, vehicle bodywork, and coating team.
This fall, 264 pupils and 89 students started the school year at the Mercedes-Benz Academy Kecskemét training center. In addition to the five basic professions, new vocational trainings started in September, such as the automation technician and mechatronic technician training, as well as a 1-year CNC machine operator training.
