June 1, 2006 : Caltex Lubricants Lanka Limited in collaboration with the Ceylon-German Technical Training Institute (German Tech) has introduced a new industry training programme for selected students on the dynamics in the lubricants market.
Caltex Lubricants Lanka Limited, a leader in the local lubricants market, has developed a successful relationship with the German Tech over the years in an attempt to gear future generations with training in areas of technological developments and to provide students with both the theoretical and practical knowledge. Caltex in keeping in-line with the organization’s global vision ‘to be the global energy company most admired for its people, partnerships and performance’, formed an alliance with the German Tech in February 2002 introducing a number of special training programmes for their students. One such programme was training on ‘Lubrication and its applications’ which has now been incorporated in to their final year syllabus.
The new training programme which was recently launched by Caltex for the German Tech students is designed to provide them with direct exposure to the industry’s market. Under this training programme the students will liaise with consumers and industry personnel to understand and study consumer buying behaviour. The programme is designed so as to enable students to gain both the technical knowledge and a practical overview of the market.
As a socially responsible organization Caltex is aware of its responsibility towards society. The organization believes that ‘the students of today are the future of tomorrow’ and hence need to be groomed and moulded to take up the challenges in the automotive industry. As a result the company is continuously involved in technical seminars, presentations and education campaigns for the students of German Tech that are conducted by trained professionals from Caltex.
