In July, Rolls-Royce opened a Regional Training Centre (RTC) in Singapore – the group’s first training facility in Asia. RTC is to provide world-class, accredited training for customers and employees across Asia and will contribute to skills and talent development in the region.
Through the RTC, Rolls-Royce will help to develop the talent pool the company and its customers require, while promoting a culture of engineering excellence in Asia. The first technicians graduated in September, and are taking up new roles in the new Seletar Assembly and Test Unit (SATU).
The RTC combines the latest technology, equipment and facilities, and customers in the region will now be able to access world-class training right at their doorsteps.
This is a fast growing region, and customers and employees will no longer have to travel to Europe or the US for access to training. The training equipment at RTS is matched to the Rolls-Royce equipment operating in the region.
Making a first appearance in Asia are two simulator domes, configured for subsea, bridge, crane or winch operations. The domes will allow trainees to practice manoeuvring operations in realistic situations and various sea states, in a safe and controlled environment.
