BestPractice 29 The company’s programme and products are increasingly de- signed for an international market and are available in various languages. The international business turnover increases each year and by now accounts for about ten per cent of the company’s total turnover. Today, Christiani employs about 150 people and also provides vocational training for its own apprentices (training rate of ten per cents). From March 17th to March 21th 2014, Christiani held a train- the-trainer seminar at the local facilities of TECSUP, a well- known technical training institute in Lima, Peru. This is part of Christiani´s increasing activities in Latin America where Peru is one of the key markets for technical education and another example for the need of technical training skills requested by local industries. The course training in Lima focused on diagnostics and electri- cal systems for diesel and gasoline engines. These topics are part of the automotive product portfolio that Christiani offers. In fact, TECSUP acquired a full training vehicle of the Volkswagen Tiguan line with a 2.0 TFSI gasoline engine. This vehicle comes out of the original VW assembly line and is undergoing a reconstruction process to become a special- ised training vehicle with integrated error circuits to simulate real life situations in diagnostics and repair. Christiani is one of the most important providers of teaching equipment and teaching materials in the field of technical training systems. Moreover, Christiani equipped TECSUP’s facilities with a 2.0 TDI diesel engine training stand with state of the art common-rail injection technology. This training stand makes it possible to show the full injection process with original components from industry suppliers. Christiani implemented this project together with its local cooperation partner Autorex Peruana S.A. (also local repre- sentative for Bosch). Several TECSUP teachers from the area of “heavy equipment” attended the training held by one of Christiani´s automotive experts. As a result, TECSUP announced being able to extend its course training framework for automotive mechatronics engineers in the future.
