This second class of new students applied for five different blue-collar job qualifications at A.V.

Metal Treatment Under Pressure was the next most popular one, with forty applicants per twenty-five openings.

Over 1,300 future metallurgical workers are now learning on the program in two Russian federal constituencies.
