Librelato’s ‘mini factory’ hits its stride

Trailer builder Librelato’s new technical training centre had a successful first month, with 32 students completing its first course.

The Brazilian company’s facility is a ‘mini-factory,’ aimed at giving trainees hands on technical experience by offering free and paid professional industry courses.

“Previously, these classes were conducted at Librelato’s headquarters, in a separate location,” said Manufacturing Director, Rodrigo Corso. “Now, with a dedicated and properly equipped space for training, we have made it possible to integrate both initiatives in a single place. With this, we have positioned the Librelato Technical Center as our main professional training hub.”

The first class to complete training, completed a welding and painting course which included 80 hours of specialised content including theoretical and practical study.

Jackson da Silva, a professional on the Librelato production line and one of the participants, became interested in welding when he was 16-years-old, influenced by his father’s profession. The Librelato technical course has improved his theoretical knowledge of the subject.

“Something that impressed me is that there are other types of welding that I didn’t know about. Now I see what I do with different eyes,” he said.

Gradually, other courses will be made available at the centre, with the Electrical and Pneumatic Chassis Assembly course offered next.
