Baku Metro (Azerbaijan) is in the process of creating a special training centre focused on employee development set to open later this year.
The new training centre will be equipped with specialised education simulators, thanks to which, according to a representative of the company, drivers, workers and specialists of Baku Metro will able be able to improve their skills.
The training centre will also serve as an HR service to employ and train graduates of higher and secondary special educational institutions. Baku Metro is trying to create all the necessary conditions for training highly qualified personnel. In particular, the Baku Metro depot has installed unique equipment for the training of drivers (before which such equipment could only be found in Minsk, Belarus).
The plans fit into wider expansion plans for the metro in Azerbaijan’s capital. In operation since 1967, Baku Metro currently has two lines with a total length of 34.6km including 23 stations. According to the 20-year development programme, the number of lines is set to grow to five, making for 119km in total length with 76 stations.
