Career in the TSL industry is at your fingertips. Especially for young people who are committed to exploring their passions. Omega Academy invites young people to visit the company and recently we have had a representation of the Vocational School No 1 in Debica. The meeting was very practical and educational and was led by Omega Pilzno experts.
The “automotive technician” profile class – for the purpose of the meeting – was divided into smaller groups, where students learned about various aspects of the work of a truck driver, a freight forwarder and a mechanic.
The subject of the meeting was adjusted to the profile of the class, so one of its most important points was a visit to the garage/service. We gave the students basic knowledge about diagnostics and organization of the service. Students enjoyed interesting tricks used in the garage very much. In practical terms, students could see different ways of exchanging truck tires, which might be useful when they start working as mechanics. Apart from practice, students could also learn some theory, for instance various types of semitrailer tractors were discussed.
Regular meetings with students is a part of the Omega Academy program, which, in collaboration with schools and higher education institutions in the TSL industry, aims to promote knowledge about the industry and support the development of passion, interests and practical skills among young people.
It is particularly important to show young people the benefits of developing useful skills in areas of their interest. This will give them a remarkable advantage on the job market – especially in the TSL industry, where specific competences are critical.
By implementing the idea of learning through play, during the meeting at the headquarters of Omega Pilzno, students from the Dębica University of Agriculture competed in lacing up the tarpaulin in a curtain trailer. The fastest students were given small gifts.
Omega Academy it’s not just meetings with students. We offer young people specific solutions, such as internships and trainings, and even the possibility of permanent employment. The Academy cooperates among others with the University of Technology in Rzeszów, the University of Information Technology and Management in Rzeszów and schools from Pilzno and Dębica.
One year has just passed since we launched the initiative helping young people to choose the right path of their career development through organizing various lectures and workshops led by Omega Pilzno specialists. Now, there is the time to summarize outcomes of the 12 months of OMEGA Academy project!
What is OMEGA Academy?
The last meeting of “OMEGA Academy” before holiday is over! On May 18, the students of the Rzeszow University of Technology visited our shipping office and a warehouse in Mokrzec.
The topics covered during the workshops included transport in a broad sense, shipping and logistics – the key aspects of our business. Thanks to that all students, despite their different career plans in the TSL sector, learned more about the jobs they were interested in.
The group leader was Ewa Ptaszek, the Head of the Customer Service Department. In the beginning the students visited our machine park. Thanks to the conversation with Grzegorz Domanski, the Technical Administrator of the Delivery Department, they enriched their theoretical knowledge with practical information concerning the use of machines and equipment.
The next point on the agenda was a visit to the Shipping Department. Under the supervision of Mateusz Wojtula, acting Head of Transport in the Slovakia Department, our guests could see how the daily work of a shipper looks like. Ewa Ptaszek talked about good practices of establishing and developing stable relationships with customers. Moreover, thanks to Jacek Szumowicz, the VOLVO Service Manager, the students visited the service facilities and got familiar with the full range of the services provided.

During the trip, the students also visited the high storage warehouse in Mokrzec which is a part of the Podkarpackie Logistics Park of OMEGA Pilzno. In this way they could see how the key logistics processes are planned and implemented. At the end of the all-day trip, all participants received a brochure about the “OMEGA Academy” program, including information about internships and on-the-job trainings in our company.
The 1st series of meetings organized as part of “OMEGA Academy” is over. Now we are working on a program of the next edition. The great interest in our meetings is the best motivation for us to do more. We would like to thank all of you for your participation in the meetings and hope to see more of you in the next semester!
