What qualities should I have as a future apprentice?

In our training workshop, great value is placed on the ability to work in a team, independence, a high willingness to learn and precise work. In addition, you should not only have a technical and mathematical understanding, but also logical reasoning and spatial imagination.

Will I be taken on as an apprentice after my final apprenticeship examination?

It is important to us that the professional careers of our apprentices continue in the long term after their apprenticeship in our company.

Do I also have attractive additional and social benefits as an apprentice?

During the apprenticeship period, our apprentices can complete a welding course, the moving crane training, the forklift license, the company driving license as well as an English supplementary course.

Can I also go abroad as an apprentice?

Is there any way to supplement my apprentice pay?
