Training (Kenshu) Centers

Roles of Training Centers - Home Away from Home -

AOTS Training (Kenshu*) Centers are located in two places: Tokyo (Adachi ward) and Kansai (Sumiyoshi ward, Osaka City). The training centers provide training facilities and accommodations for trainees who are away from their countries to participate in training courses at AOTS and specialized technical training at host companies. Each training center has a role to be a "Home Away from Home" for the trainees during their stay in Japan, in order to reduce the cultural gap and provide comfortable circumstances.

For example, at the training center canteens, menu for vegetarians and Muslims are available every day. Various menu of trainees' home countries are also prepared. The reception desks deal with inquiries from trainees for 24 hours. The training centers support welfare of trainees by providing regular health consultations as well.

“Kenshu” means ‘training’ in Japanese.

Starting Point for Social Exchange and Human Network

AOTS training centers where trainees from various nations gather all the time are important international communication places by themselves. The trainees enjoy communication at canteens and in the lobbies. The training centers organize various activities such as sports events and "Bon-odori" dance festivals, in order to help trainees to deepen their knowledge toward Japan, and also give opportunities for both trainees and neighbors to get to know each other.
