The programme is a 3-year NVTI certified programme which was officially introduced in Samartex in the year 2004.

THE PURPOSE FOR ITS INTRODUCTION: Before Samartex took over from At&P, the company was put under divestiture for 10 years, causing majority of skilled labour to leave the company. After several challenges in acquiring skilled personnel, the programme was initiated to train the youth in the familiar settings of Samartex at a point when unskilled labour greatly outnumbered the skilled.

The programme admits graduates of JHS and SHS between the ages of 17 to 22 into various fields such as engineering, transport, production, water treatment, building and civil works. Courses undertaken include; Auto-electrical, Welding, Heavy Duty Mechanic, Lathe Turning, Rewinding, Bench Fitting, Machining, General Electrical, Air Condition and Refrigeration, Panel Beating etc.

Since its introduction till date the programme has trained over 1,000 apprentices who enrolled into the programme from across the country especially from Wassa Amenfi and Aowin Districts. This has provided more skilled qualified labour not only for Samartex but society as a whole. Majority of apprentices who pass out are not retained since they are under no obligation to work for Samartex. They join other companies, workshops, businesses and setups across the country.
