training centre of Arcos de Valdevez began its activity within
its own facilities in September, 2005, to meet the growing requirements
of the enterprises of the metal and electromechanical sector in the
region called Alto Minho. It should be noted that from 1992 to 2005
those needs were supplied by CENFIM´s training centre in Trofa.
As we understood that it would only be possible to have competitive
enterprises with the help of an efficient vocational training, a
training centre had to be built specifically designed to serve
enterprises (namely of equipment goods, electromechanical maintenance
and alike) that work in Arcos de Valdevez, Caminha, Monção, Paredes do
Coura, Valença do Minho, Viana do Castelo and Vila Nova de Cerveira.
