Seriana Edilizia Academy, a successful debut edition
We have just wrapped up the first edition of Seriana Edilizia Academy, a training course that saw the eight attendees complete a theory and practical course on earthquake strengthening for buildings.
The course, which was held over two weeks, was put on in collaboration with Gi Group.
The feedback we got from the trainees was positive and they all came out of this experience feeling happy with the results, especially since many of them decided to go down this training path in order to improve their work profile and hence find employment.
What the trainees thought
The main strength of this Academy is the experience that this course allows you to gain in terms of personal and professional growth. “Step-by-step learning that has forged a close-knit group, immensely rewarding following the pandemic period and isolation of the last few years,” one attendee said.
Forming a team and creating a welcoming environment was one of the factors they appreciated most.
“When I came here, I found really friendly people, smiling people who fill you with enthusiasm.”
The young trainees retained their motivation levels over the whole course, driven by an eagerness to put themselves to the test. “It was a challenge for me, too. Bettering myself and learning new things so as to improve my work as well.”
“I’ve only just decided to venture into the world of work and this is the best opportunity to enter a world that’s entirely new to me.”
The course attendees were in different age brackets, ranging from 19 to 35 years of age.
They described the Academy as an experience that leads to a gradual introduction into the company, teaching the theory in the classroom and only then moving onto the practical part.
“The real strength, in addition to the fantastic people who took us on this journey and gave us all manner of information, is that you learn the job first so that you don’t end up in the field underprepared and get something wrong.”
“The Academy is a comprehensive, highly organized pathway that I’d have no problem recommending to others. It’s a complete experience that teaches you everything from A to Z, from information to manual work: it’s an all-round training programme.”
Seriana Edilizia is also really happy with the course that has just finished and, above all, with the people who took part, who are now new members of the site team.
In the future, we will be putting on the second edition of the Academy for Seriana Edilizia Fitters, aiming to produce an equally successful course.
