Vocational training office
Pro Vestland opplæringskontor is a vocational training office recruiting apprentices to train into skilled workers in the following industries: process and mechanical industry, sales and media. We mainly work with companies in Sogn and Fjordane, however we have one company situated in Trøndelag and one in Oppland.
Pro was founded in 1997 and today we have 100-150 apprentices in different companies.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding our services.
In 2015 we started a new cooperation for student exchange with Vocational Education Competence Center «Riga State Technical School» in Riga, Latvia.
We offer a 4 week long exchange for our apprentices where the goal is for them to learn about a new culture and their field of work in another country.
For many years we have also been cooperating with BASF in Germany. Many apprentices have had practice in factories in Germany. All of them have come home with a fascinating experience for life. During the exchange you will get all expenses paid, plus some extra pocket money.
If you want to participate or know more about our exchange-program, send an e-mail to: email@example.com
