A beautiful Christmas gift for the CNFPC
It was with great joy that Jos Schwind, a teacher of automobile mechanics at the CNFPC, welcomed the news. Indeed, the center seeks to put the students in conditions to work in a car garage, which is why making them work on vehicles which are fairly damaged and which have experienced problems relating to their daily use is an opportunity for them.
« An all-terrain vehicle is different from a city car, their components are completely different. My students will be able to know its particularities thanks to practice, which is much more interesting than when we learn it in books.» Jos Schwind, mechanical teacher at CNFPC.
"We hope that this gift from SOTEL motivates many Luxembourg companies to think of us when their vehicles are ready for scrap and it is not always profitable to resell them. We depend on these donations to bring our students closer to reality. » explained Jos Schwind
