For the third consecutive year, and from its role as a leading company in the field of sustainable transport, Scania Argentina will carry out the program Conductive designed to professionally train women who wish to be part of the transportation industry. The launch will be on next Thursday, September 23 at 14.00:XNUMX p.m. through a virtual presentation.

They will be in total 12 women from all over the country who will receive the scholarship provided by the company, which includes the professional driver course dictated by the Professional Foundation for Transportation (FPT) and Scania Training Center in the country, lodging, transfers and meals.
The program will provide the necessary tools to be able to efficiently operate a cargo transport vehicle, as well as provide a quality service, becoming professional drivers. Its development will be focused on the driving of articulated vehicles, of which Scania is one of the main marketers of its own brand in the Argentine Republic.
