Future opportunities

We train our future experts and offer former apprentices great opportunities as permanent employments or a course of study after their regular apprenticeship.

The apprentices already graduate from different subjects in college during their apprenticeship and can catch up on the missing ones after their training. For that, they not only bring theoretical knowledge, but also practical experience, which is increasingly in demand on the labor market. It is precisely this experience and understanding that apprentices can stand out from the crowd.

Our regular exchange

Discussions take place in order to coordinate and exchange information in the best possible way. Whenever questions show up, the head of vocational training and the vocational trainer are always ready to listen. We are a team. That is important to us!
