The Scania Ukraine company has joined the Reskilling Ukraine initiative from the Swedish charitable foundation Beredskapslyftet to train women in Ukraine to become truck drivers.
The OnTrack course consists of theoretical and practical parts, as well as a subsequent exam to obtain a category C driving license.
The theoretical part consists of 10 online classes, each lasting 3 hours with a break. At the end of the theoretical course, participants take a theoretical test.
The practical part takes 2 weeks and is carried out at the Scania training center in the Kyiv region. Truck driving practice takes 20 hours. During training, future drivers are provided with hotel accommodation, three meals a day and transfers to the locations provided for by the program.
The first group of participants is already mastering Scania's safe and economical driving training program. Practical classes are conducted on the territory of the Scania dealership in the Kyiv region, which is part of the On Track course program.
Registration for the second stream of the OnTrack course from Reskilling Ukraine is already open. The training will take place in April-May 2024. The priority categories for OnTrack course participants are defenders, women from military families, internally displaced people and other vulnerable groups.
