21 February 2014 (11:01)

February 21, 2014. A new employee training program was launched at Uralvagonzavod Corporation's head plant within the framework of a new, large-scale project relating to he construction of up-to-date production facilities meant for making new generation special vehicles. The implementation of this project will mean the corporation will fully meet the Russian Defense Ministry's requirements relating to the employee qualifications and the technologies applied and therefore requirements relating to the quality of special vehicles, the corporation's press service says.

'This is the first time over the last two decades that such a project gets implemented at Uralvagonzavod. The new department will be fitted with innovative equipment and technologies as well as the most advanced production process management methods. Solver, a Russian engineering consulting firm, is acting as the general contractor for the project and is in charge not only of supplying the machinery for the new department but also of the development of the technological processes and employee recruitment. The task is to train skilled workers for the absolutely new, highly efficient, and highly profitable production,' the message states.

34 engineers are currently undergoing training as CNC programmers: the first nine-people group is studying today. These are employees from the Chief Process Engineer & Chief Electronic Engineer's Department of Uralvagonzavod. The training is coordinated by Siemens, and classes are conducted at the company Employee Training Center. The requirements that the new department's employees have to meet are rather strict. Prior to this training, Uralvagonzavod workers had to go through entry tests and interviews, which made it possible to gauge their initial expertise and tailor the educational route to their needs. The following two student groups will study along the same program. However, the groups will include both plant workers and newly hired technicians.
