Renault Trucks has donated 23 vehicles to a number of different technical colleges and apprentice training centres. These donations were made as a means of paying the annual vocational education tax. Supplied as workshop teaching material, these trucks represent various models from the Renault Trucks range and will give future truck maintenance technicians an opportunity to become familiar with the latest technical features, providing a highly practical complement to their training programme. Over the last three years, more than 100 vehicles have been donated in this way. These operations allow Renault Trucks to demonstrate its commitment to training young people and its desire to establish a viable link between the world of work and vocational education.
Renault Trucks has supplied 23 new trucks to some 20 schools and apprentice training centres throughout France. These have been donated as a means of paying the annual vocational education tax and include Renault Mascott, Premium Lander, Kerax, Premium Long Distance and Renault Midlum vehicles. They will not be used for carrying any goods, but will be dismantled, reassembled and studied in great detail by students during practical work sessions. This will enable them to learn about trucks' mechanical workings, basic architecture and their component units. The schools concerned train future truck maintenance technicians and prepare them for CAP (Practical Skills Certificate), professional baccalaureate or BTS (Higher Technical Certificate) qualifications.
This is the third year running that Renault Trucks has repeated this operation which began in 2008. By donating this teaching material, Renault Trucks is reasserting its determination to support programs that train the technicians of the future, make them familiar with its products and promote activities associated with road haulage.
