The centre, run in conjunction with the Learning and Skills Council and Stephenson College in Coalville, will open within the next two months according to a spokesperson for the manufacturer.
Mercedes-Benz had outsourced much of its training to Carter and Carter until the company went into administration in March, but had begun setting up the new centre beforehand.
The new centre will take on all of the existing 532 apprentices, and between 90 and 150 new admissions each year.
On completion of the 40 month programme, apprentices will be given certificates by Mercedes-Benz, and all qualifications are recognised by the IMI.
