Students and graduates of Veracruz’s Training Center for Industrial Work (CECATI) No. 42 already work in Canada through agreements that the institute makes with a company based in Quebec, placing Veracruz employees in that country.
The director of CECATI, Francisco Hernández, explained that the main interest is for welding posts and paleria and, due to the demand for other trades, has entered other workshops.
The selection of training offered in the various courses on campus is recruited from time to time and so far there are 45 students who have crossed the border to be employed in Canada.
“Visits to Veracruz, for CECATI 42, are becoming more frequent to conduct these kinds of tests and take human resources.

He indicated that the agreement was for 9 years, but the demand for vacancies has been increasing in recent years.
