Enugu State’s Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) Centre has engaged 400 youths in Auto-revamp Innovation Training Programme (AITP).

The training, organized in partnership with AutoEase Limited, aims to train the beneficiaries on how to repair damaged vehicles and build new ones from older models.

The Special Adviser to Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi on SMEs Development and Director-General, Enugu SMEs Centre, Hon. Arinze Chilo-Offiah, said the first batch of the beneficiaries, who participated in the eight-month training, have graduated and received their certificates.

Hon. Chilo-Offiah disclosed that the second and third batches of the beneficiaries were still undergoing training while the application for participation in the fourth batch is ongoing via: www.enugusmeautojobs.com .

The Special Adviser pointed out that the graduation ceremony of the first batch, which featured an opening remark by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of AutoEase Limited, Mrs Oby Okeke and words of admonition and encouragement from himself, was a huge success.

He revealed that the event also featured a practical demonstration of the three stages of auto-ramping by the first batch of beneficiaries, explaining that “each team was given damaged car bonnets and asked to revamp them under forty-five (45) minutes and the best team received a cash prize from AutoEase Limited.

“Just like the newly certified auto-experts, learning auto-repair skills and how to build new cars from old models is a hefty profitable investment in your life, and will set you up to work in big automobile companies like Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, Toyota, Honda and more”, the Special Adviser said.

Stressing Ugwuanyi’s sustained commitment to human capital development programmes for the empowerment of youths of Enugu State, Hon. Chilo-Offiah reiterated that the SMEs centre remains steadfast in ensuring that the governor’s vision is actualized in its fullness.
