Great importance of apprenticeships at Getzner Werkstoffe
In the current apprenticeship year, Getzner Werkstoffe is training 14 young people in 5 different directions: Electrical Engineering, Laboratory Technology, Metal Technology, IT Technology and in the administrative area to become an Industrial Clerk.
"Apprenticeship training for us means that we inspire apprentices, challenge them and lead them to independence - mistakes are also allowed. However, it is also important that the apprentices enjoy their work," knows Markus Starl, training officer for chemical laboratory technology.
In June, the company was awarded the title of "excellent training company" for the eighth time.
Learning according to the rotation principle
In order to give the young people a comprehensive insight into the different areas of work at Getzner, some of them - depending on the apprenticeship - complete their training on a rotation basis: This means that they work in different departments of the vibration control company for several months at a time, thus gaining an impression of which activities suit them and which tasks are of interest to them.
New apprenticeship officer at Getzner
As of September 1, the new apprenticeship officer Arne Rhomberg took over his duties. "I am very pleased to take on this task and to be able to support the young people in their training. Apprenticeships are very important at Getzner and offer young people the perfect introduction to the working world. In addition to the training to become a sought-after specialist, the interpersonal aspect is a top priority for us," says Arne Rhomberg.
