Sacmi recently announced it has partnered with other companies to establish the Tonito Emiliani Higher Technical Training Institute. The educational program, which will last for two years, will have 25 places available to Italians and foreigners who have a high school diploma. More than 30% of the total number of course hours will be set aside for in-company work experience “with the extraordinary opportunity to gain experience at Sacmi’s pilot plants,” said Giovanni Savorani, president of Gigacer and a board member of Confindustria Ceramica.

The vocational courses are sponsored by the Region of Emilia-Romagna. This is reportedly the first time in Italy that a free higher education course for the ceramic sector has been made available. The town’s vice-mayor, Massimo Isola, said he thinks it could provide “a welcome boost to the ceramic system.” The Tonito Emiliani Higher Training Institute is expected to open for the academic year 2013-2014. Students must apply by October 7.
