Buers, Austria. In September 2017, four young people will start their apprenticeships at Getzner Werkstoffe. This will the number of apprentices employed at the company to twelve, in roles ranging from laboratory technician, metal technician, industrial management assistant and IT technician. Some of the apprenticeships will be carried out on a rotational basis.
On 1 September 2017, four new apprentices will start their training at Getzner in Buers. Emma Ratt and Tamara Baumgartner are being trained as laboratory technicians by the vibration protection expert in Buers, while Miriam Sparr will train to become an industrial management assistant and Jakob Wischenbart an IT engineer. In addition to the four new apprentices, Getzner is currently training eight other young people as skilled laboratory technicians, metal technicians, industrial management assistants and IT technicians. "We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new apprentices," says Apprenticeship Officer Reinhard Gantner. "An apprenticeship at Getzner will not just be good fun, but will also set the trainees up for their careers as highly sought-after skilled workers."
Learning in different departments
Depending on the apprenticeship, some apprentices will be completing a rotation course to ensure that they gain a comprehensive insight into the various fields of work at Getzner. This means that the apprentices will spend several months at a time working in different departments at the vibration protection company, allowing them to form an impression of which areas best fit with their talents and which tasks interest them the most. "As part of our rotations, we gain experience in new departments, so it's a good way to get to know the company as a whole. Each rotation makes an apprentice a little more independent and flexible. After three years, the training comes to an end. By this time, the apprentice has gained a sufficient level of knowledge and an understanding of how the departments work together," explains Anna Riemer, who started as an apprentice industrial management assistant at Getzner in 2015. "Rotating between departments is fun, varied and a great way to learn."
