SEAT has introduced a training programme centred on the future challenges facing Industry 4.0. Aimed at all the 14,000 employees, the company has designed a programme to make workers aware of the real meaning of the Industry 4.0 concept in an entertaining, interactive way, as well as the importance of people and their continuous training at the core of what is known as the fourth industrial revolution.

The participants interact with some of the tools and technology that will be widely used in all production processes a few years from now and which are already being implemented, such as virtual reality, collaborative robots, 3D printing and augmented reality, among others. The training consists in a session taught the CFPA’s Industry 4.0 module, where the participants are given insights into the different production transformations until arriving at the aforementioned fourth industrial revolution.

The session, which has been conceived through experimentation and a museum-based perspective, invites the participants to interact with the contents and explanations, which describe the processes of the new industry and the technologies which will be at the forefront in the near future and how SEAT is introducing them in its industrial activity. Among these, the company is already applying some, such as smartglasses and autonomous, collaborative robots, in its commitment to making Martorell a benchmark smart factory.

So far, out of the 2,000 employees who have registered for training, already over 1,200 have participated. Once they have completed the course, they can attend roundtable debates to discuss their findings and viewpoints about the industrial paradigm shift.

With this project, SEAT highlights its dedication in the field of training, where the company invests four times more per employee than the national average, reaching 16 million euros annually. The company’s role as a reference in the area of training and in preparing its professionals is reflected in the Apprentice School, a centre of excellence in Professional Training that recently celebrated its 60th anniversary, which has been attended by more than 2,600 students.
