Established in partnership with Technical Training Inc. (TTI), the state - of - the - art technical training centre is spread over 18, 000 sq ft. in the industrial town of Manesar.
As part of the training programme, trainees will be inducted on Ford's current and forthcoming product portfolio to serve customer requirements.
The learning programmes and techniques will be conducted in digitally computerised classrooms.
Speaking on the occasion, Anurag Mehrotra, Ford India's executive director, marketing, sales and service, said: "This new state - of - the - art facility is a testimony to our commitment towards ensuring a skilled work force, qualified with the right certifications to deal with Ford products and more.
