ARNOLD'S pounds 10MILLION FOR NEW TRAINERS; Car giant's motor school.
The structure on Glasgow's Clydeside will be split into two dedicated sections.
A transport division will cater for all aspects of automotive training, while an IT and business skills division will offer a broad range of training skills.
The centre will be run by training company GTG - who were bought by the Arnold Clark Group in 2003.
Scotland's knight of the road yesterday said the centre on South Street reflected the importance of training in business.
He said: "People are an organisation's best asset and it is important that they are given the opportunity to further their skills and advance their careers.
"Our aim with GTG was to create a progressive learning environment which can provide training for people at all levels of an organisation.
"With a bank of experienced trainers on hand, this is a winning combination."
GTG chief executive David Scott said: "This venue is a tremendous opportunity for GTG to showcase all it has to offer.
"We already have a well established presence within the industry and now, with the practical training zone, we have an exceptional facility which will appeal to a wide variety of users."
There are also 10 meeting rooms and a 150-seat lecture theatre.
