The project of the Post-Graduate School for Cement Technicians was initiated in 2004 in cooperation with the local high school „Alexandru Roman” from Alesd. The pupils of this school benefit from theoretical and practical training for two years, followed by one year of apprenticeship in a specific occupation: mechanic, electrician, operator, laboratory technician. At the end of the studies, the students receive diplomas recognized by the Ministry of Education and Research.
When possible, the graduates are offered jobs within Holcim. The 15 graduates of each generation are selected based on an exam, interview, practical test and personality test. 90% of the graduates of the first three generations were hired by Holcim in Romania but also in other Holcim Group companies.
