The Management Board of AS-PL Sp. z o.o. decided on the new direction of company development. For the first time the company is investing in the development of young talents of the automotive industry. The source of inspiration for this type of activity was the 18th edition of the Automotive Technology Olympics.
"People are the greatest asset, especially young people on the threshold of adulthood, talented, looking for the right career path for themselves. We want to invest in education, to support young people who are interested in automotive. I hope that qualified staff will join the AS team in the future" - says Tomasz Kaszubowski - Vice President of AS-PL Sp. z o.o. in Gdańsk.
National character of the Olympics
"The Olympics have a nationwide reach and was embraced with honorary patronage of the Minister of National Education. During the Olympics, knowledge of the following will be assessed: basic construction of machines, construction of motor vehicles, diagnosis and repair of assemblies and systems of motor vehicles, the ability of using tools and devices including measurement, health and safety at work and environmental protection" – announces Ryszard Polit - the Editor-in-Chief of Auto Moto Serwis and organizer of the Olympics.
Participation in the 18th edition of the Olympics was limited to students of the automotive profile schools – technical colleges, basic vocational schools and post-secondary schools in the country. During the semi-final the Warsaw Technical University hosted nearly half a thousand of students.
Of the nearly half a thousand test cards with tasks solved during the semi-finals of the Olympics, the jury qualified 12 students to the final, which will be held on May 13 at the headquarters of Robert Bosch Sp. z o.o. at ul. Jutrzenki 105. All finalists will have to perform two practical tasks in the field of vehicle diagnosis and repair. Those who earn the most points will be exempted from the written part of the professional examination. Rivalry will also appoint the Automotive School of the Year - this title will receive a school whose two students will collect together the highest number of points.
AS-PL Sp. z o.o. obtained the title of the sponsor supporting the Olympics.
We will keep our fingers crossed for all the finalists!
