Valencia – 28.02.22. This morning, the second cycle of on-site classes began in the Port of Valencia for the 20 students of the 1st edition of the Dual Port Immersion Vocational Training, a pioneering initiative in the sector led by Fundación Valenciaport and the Generalitat Valenciana with the support of the Port Authority of Valencia and the logistics business association Propeller Valencia.
It should be remembered that the students, from the higher degrees in International Trade and Transport and Logistics at the Luis Suñer Sanchís, Pere Boïl, Ausiàs March and Abastos training centres, are being trained to work as managers in transport companies, as well as in freight forwarding and shipping companies.
Specifically, this year they will receive another 100 hours of theoretical training, 50 of which will be related to air, rail and land transport, warehouse management and the management of special loads, which will be completed with visits to the Port of Sagunto and the Raminatrans Group’s facilities in Ribarroja. The following 50 hours of theoretical training are part of the programme of simulated companies of the European project YEP MED, in which an ERP has been designed for the students to work on real export and import cases together with students from the port communities of Egypt and Jordan.
Once this theoretical training has been completed, the students will carry out between 600 and 800 hours of work experience (400 / 600 of which will be paid by means of a grant) in different companies in the sector, including IFS, Logitren Ferroviaria, MPG, Vitrans Group, Cosco Shipping Lines, Logística Chema Ballester, MSC, Tiba Spain, Transportes Remedios Torres, Valencia Container Depot Logística and Cade Logística.
The main objective of this training is for students to be familiar with the most common operations in companies in the logistics-port community and to be able to carry out their work effectively and efficiently, thus favouring their subsequent incorporation into the labour market.
