On 4 June, our Branch Manager Rudolf Žák was invited, as the only representative of all staffing agencies in the Czech Republic, to the opening ceremony of the school’s training vessel. For 17 long years, the students at the inland shipping school have waited to make full use of the training vessel moored in the winter harbour. It was only this year that they were able to do so, and now they can learn the secrets of inland shipping on all the floors of the ship. Until now, they could only practice on the upper deck. The DL2 boat (Dílenská loď 2 / workshop vessel) is unique in the Czech Republic, as no other boat is on any domestic rivers.
TRAINING VESSEL: NAUTICAL WORKSHOP
Instead of only learning in school workshops, apprenticeship students regularly go out on the boat, learning everything they need to know after graduation in a realistic environment. The vessel has a nautical workshop, a forge, an engine room and welding facilities. It also has classrooms where students can prepare for the practical part of the course. The ceremony was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Transport, regional and municipal authorities, inland shipping authorities, the mayor of the city, representatives of shipyards, and directors of the two largest inland shipping companies. Most of the regional and state media were also present.
TOS RECEIVED AN AWARD!
Rudolf: ‘I joined an organised guided tour of the vessel and of course, the opening ceremony. TOS was also awarded. 😊 We were thanked for our 16 years of support and cooperation with the school. We received a life ring made by the school pupils and a book about the city of Děčín with a personal dedication from the headmistress. We wish all the students good luck and a great time in the workshops on their training vessel.’
