Alnas and KAMAZ to Exchange Experience Creating a Dual Training System

The delegation included Svetlana Mikheyeva, Director of the KAMAZ Corporate University, and her deputy Tatyana Golubitskaya. They visited the educational center of Alnas and the site of the future Experimental Shop with a training production line.
Sergei Denisov, Director of the Alnas educational center, filled the guests in on the Future of White Metallurgy program of ChelPipe Group, under which students in Pervouralsk are already receiving training in such high-demand fields of expertise as robotics, mechatronics, etc. As part of the tour, guests and hosts discussed the special considerations of integrating production and professional education as part of a dual system for training professionals. In turn, Svetlana Mikheyeva discussed the practice of dual training and cooperation with colleges and universities at KAMAZ.
“The training center of Alnas is impressive. We liked the project of ChelPipe and Rimera involving a dual training system for human resources, whereby students simultaneously undergo training in a college setting and at the enterprise. This training system makes it possible to train professionals who are ready to begin work on modern equipment right away,” Svetlana Mikheyeva said.
"The College of the Future Tatarstan project, along with the Future of White Metallurgy project, is aimed at enhancing the prestige of manual worker occupations and training highly-qualified professionals for Russian enterprises. Without a doubt, such educational projects are vital to the manufacturing industry and the nation's economy. It is therefore not surprising that they are implemented as part of public-private partnerships. The Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Tatarstan has already allocated 13 million rubles for the College of the Future Tatarstan project, which has funded the purchase of equipment for the laboratory shop. By the end of 2015, ChelPipe Group and the Republic of Tatarstan will have invested close to 200 million rubles in the project. Our plans for this year include renovating the seventh floor of the plant administration offices building to house the laboratories and put into service our Experimental Shop with a training production line that will serve as an on-the-job training venue for our students and a place where Alnas employees can undergo professional development and master associated occupations,” Alnas Executive Director Sergei Sachenko says.
The College of the Future Tatarstan social and educational project was launched in 2012 under the auspices of the Government of the Republic of Tatarstan. Its goal is to attract highly-skilled professionals to mechanical engineering plants of the republic and enhance the prestige of manual worker occupations. In December 2012, the innovative educational project was endorsed by Russian President Vladimir Putin. In 2013, the government of Tatarstan and ChelPipe signed an agreement to cooperate on the project. The College of the Future Tatarstan was chosen as a venue for a resource training center for the South-East Tatarstan Mechanical Engineering industry and is one of the five projects short-listed for priority funding in 2015.
The training center of the College of the Future Tatarstan was officially opened at Alnas in September 2013. Some 100 students are currently enrolled in machine tool operation, mechanical engineering technology, and electrical equipment maintenance courses.
