Toronto’s Centennial College will be running a groundbreaking automotive training academy in Egypt.

Centennial successfully won the contract, based on the strength of their track record of supporting local skilled-labour development in Middle East and North Africa countries.

“The development of skilled labour can help address the chronic unemployment endured by young people in Egypt and in neighbouring states by providing them with clear career paths in automotive-related fields,” said Mike Winkfein, Centennial’s Director of Business Development, Asia Pacific and Middle East.

Centennial will work with Ghabbour Auto (GB Auto) to build a corporate training academy to train over 5,000 of GB Auto’s employees. The curriculum will cover all aspects of the industry, such as manufacturing, distribution, sales, service and corporate administration.

The project will begin with Centennial overseeing the construction of the 4,000-square-metre facility in Cairo. They will also be developing training paths, implementing a corporate learning management system, and developing curriculum.

Centennial will also train a team of GB Auto employees to take over the management of the academy so GB can run it at the end of the four-year implementation phase.
