All this confirms that:

1. the choice of this new profession in the region was correct;
2. the enterprises are interested in this type of specialists.

The teaching is organized in the following pattern: 5 weeks - the theoretical training, and starting with 6 week - 3 days per week for the theoretical training and 3 days for the production training at the enterprises of the town.

By the end of the academic year the students completed industrial practice at the workplace and passed exams. The results show that the students have been well acquainted with new classification of the output production, with the specifics of the technological processes and industrial equipment, with suppliers of raw materials and the end users of the finished products.

With that, the students have realistically evaluated the problems of the enterprises and have made some proposals towards the extension of the economic links, the search of new markets for sale of the production.
