KUALA LUMPUR: Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) felicitated 54 trainees from its Advanced Modern Apprenticeship Class of 2020 last week.

The apprentice programme, in its 36th year, aims to nurture local Malaysian talent to become world-class technicians and join the Mercedes Benz network to put their skills to the test.

MBM said as of August this year, over 900 graduates had entered the Mercedes-Benz network as advanced technicians after their successful completion from the programme.

Dr Claus Weidner, MBM president and chief executive officer, said it believed in the continuous development of an individual, training them to be self-reliant and driven for perfection.

“Over the years, we have seen many graduates join the programme and excel in their automotive career with us.

“The programme is designed to not only nurture young Malaysians by exposing them to advanced technical skills but also helps them future-proof their careers by learning from the finest in the industry,” he said in a statement.

Weidner said it was Mercedes-Benz’s goal to have a pool of well-trained, technically skilled workforce for its network across Malaysia to ensure that its customers get the best driving experience and uncompromising quality of their vehicle.

MBM vice-president for customer services Jeffrey Simon said it aimed to nurture its local talent, moulding them into the best version of themselves as they embark on their journey in the automotive industry.
