About Facility Training

Facility training is conducted in Technical Training Center (TTC).

It was established in Takasaki City on April 24, 2012.

Technical Training Center is a training institute for education and training in order to improve the actual skills of inspection and maintenance.

"Facility Training" Improvement of the skills for facility equipment maintenance.

Approximately 970 of ETC lanes are managed and operated in the jurisdiction of NEXCO East. The ETC trouble with system suspension occurs about 510 cases a year, which affects about 0.36 million vehicles using the expressways. The second generation of ETC have been introduced for the ETC equipment renewal since 2010, but the new equipment needs to be tested before installation if the mutual communication between devices made by different manufacturer actually works. Because of the aging of experienced engineers and employment of inexperienced persons, OJT is not enough for improvement of the equipment maintenance skills, therefore we conduct the training using the real ETC equipment and power distribution apparatus in order to improve the skills to operate machines, inspect them and respond to troubles. We aim to train the facility maintenance engineers with reliable skills through a variety of trainings from maintenace duties to trouble response by professional instructors and practical lessons using actual equipment.
