Over the past three years 50 people passed the program of professional retraining and 204 people improved their skills. Specialists of Smolenskenergo are involved in teaching at training courses of power engineers.

The cooperation is not limited to training activities. Smolenskenergo contributed significantly to the erection of the monument to the students of the Moscow Power Engineering Institute, who died in World War II: power engineers actively participated in the construction of the memorial stele, completed lighting of the monument, moved poles and cut down trees and took over most of the construction activities on erection of the monument and landscaping. Power engineers keep the monument in good condition and help a scouting force to identify the names of unknown heroes of power engineers of the Great Patriotic War.

In 2011 within the target program of IDGC Holding “Electricity Distribution Complex — for the Environment Protection”, aimed at restoring the balance of nature that is infringed as a result of abnormal natural phenomena, the division’s staff have planted over 560 seedlings, including the created “Walk of Power Engineers” from 20 chestnut trees near the building of the Smolensk Branch of Moscow Power Engineering Institute.

“Moscow Power Engineering Institute and its Smolensk branch were not accidentally chosen as one of the basic institutions for the training of the division. Over the years of its existence the institute has trained thousands of engineers who are the foundation of human resource potential of Power Industry of Russia, — said Deputy General Director of IDGC of Center — Smolenskenergo division director Sabir Agamaliyev in his congratulatory speech. — We express our gratitude to the university teaching staff for the excellent training of young specialists, as well as retraining and skills improvement of our employees.
