In the forthcoming period, they will use acquired knowledge and experience and work on development of distributive network of the company MI Trivas.

Also, a training of two welders has begun in the Topling Company within the project. Interestingly, one of them is eighteen years old, so that he is the youngest participant of the training for work in industry within the project “Partnership for quality jobs and competitiveness” so far.
