New recruits to be trained by the vibration protection expert from September
home•Press•Three new apprentices join Getzner Werkstoffe
Buers, Austria. In September 2018, three young people will start their apprenticeships at Getzner Werkstoffe. This will bring the number of apprentices employed at the company to fourteen, in roles ranging from laboratory technician to metal technician and industrial management assistant. Some of the apprenticeships will be carried out on a rotational basis.
On 3 September 2018, three new apprentices will arrive for their first day at Getzner in Buers. Manuel Panhofer will be trained as a laboratory technician, Leonie Bitschnau is learning the trade of an industrial management assistant and David Weinzerl that of a metal technician. In addition to the three new apprentices, Getzner is currently training eleven other young people as skilled laboratory technicians, metal technicians, industrial management assistants and IT technicians. “We would like to say a warm welcome to our new apprentices. Getzner offers a versatile and fascinating training period to its young recruits. Once they have completed the programme, they will be highly sought-after specialists,” explains apprenticeship officer Reinhard Gantner.
Learning through rotations
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, you 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," explains Anna Riemer, who just completed her training as an industrial management assistant this summer.
