A class of 43 students graduated from a course on Production Assistant for young apprentices at the worksite of Jirau Hydroelectric Plant, in Rondônia state. Offered by Construtora Camargo Corrêa, the course had a workload of 1600 hours/class, shared by theory and practice hours. This was the first group that also developed practical experiences.

In the course, practical lessons were held in various sectors of the company, in departments such as Engineering, Human Resources, Environment, Safety, and others. Theory classes were developed by SENAI from Rondônia at the Training Center of the worksite.

"In addition to this project, we have others like Sustainable Generation, where we serve about 11 thousand professionals, and many of them are already working for Camargo Corrêa, while others are ready to work at the state labor market", explains Walmir Luís Picolotto, Human Resources Manager at Construtora Camargo Corrêa.

According Elsa Ronsoni Pereira, director of SENAI Marechal Rondon School, education is the path to social inclusion. "The change comes from education. The more people study, the more they will be empowered, and the more educated they are, the more job opportunities they will have", said the director.

For apprentice Felipe Alves, 19, the training will solve the problem of lack of experience that many youngsters face when looking for their first job. "It was an entrance door for us, apprentices, who had this opportunity to enter the labor market. Youngsters with no previous experience find it more complicated to get a better job, but with training, everything is different", he said.

The graduation of the Production Assistant happened in the morning and in the afternoon. Nineteen students graduated with the morning class, and 24 with the afternoon class.
