The training will be held at Malcolm Wilson’s M-Sport operation in Cumbria, where students will receive expert tuition across a number of disciplines including media awareness, first aid training and technical briefings.
Beyond the classroom, the WRC Academy drivers will also be able to get behind the wheel of the Ford Fiesta R2 at M-Sport’s testing ground where they will receive valuable tuition from an experienced driver.
Supplying the WRC Academy with control tyres again in 2012, Pirelli will also be on hand to brief competitors on the various compounds available throughout the season.
“The training days are a great opportunity for competitors to get to know each other and become integrated into the team," said WRC Academy chief Maciej Woda.
“Last year we were very proud of the atmosphere we created within the WRC Academy and this year will see another big emphasis on team building and sportsmanship. I am really looking forward to meeting everyone - old friends and new - next month.”
FIA WRC manager, Michele Mouton, commented: “Becoming an FIA world rally champion is about so much more than just driving fast. Training is so important and covers many different aspects.
“The WRC Academy has unrivalled access to some of the world’s most experienced people in the sport; the knowledge and experience they can pass on to our stars of the future is priceless.”
