The German dual vocational training program Ausbildung was launched in Korea in 2017.

It is designed to provide opportunities for Korean students to participate in on-the-job training at the dealerships of four German automotive brands in Korea including Daimler Trucks Korea, and academic education at colleges that are acting as vocational schools.

Under the agreement, Daimler Trucks Korea will collaborate in the commercial vehicle sector of the Ausbildung program, which will have its second batch of students in September this year, according to the KGCCI.

“Our participation in the Ausbildung program is a part of our efforts to nurture global service talents in our commitment to become ‘trucks you can trust’ in the Korean market,” said Cho Kyu-sang, CEO of Daimler Trucks Korea.
