Training

We offer our apprentices a first-rate training program, supervised by experienced instructors.

Apprenticeship as a chemical technician

We have been training young employees to qualify as chemical technicians for many decades, supervising an average of 18 apprentices per year.
Thanks to this extensive training experience, we can offer trainees personalised and direct attention.
 
In 2019, we successfully modernised our training lab. We can now offer first-rate training by experienced instructors in a state-of-the-art facility. Our instructor, who has many years’ experience and has successfully trained countless young chemical technicians, is also actively committed to the IHK (German Chamber of Industry and Commerce) training program. The high quality of his training is also reflected in his nomination for “Trainer of the Year 2015 in the Cologne district of IHK Cologne”. Mr. Kober was shortlisted for the award.

INTERNSHIPS

In addition to our training program, we also offer internships for secondary students in our training fields.

TRIAL DAY

We also maintain a cooperative project with a local school, which allows selected students who display above-average aptitude in the natural sciences to spend a trial day in our training workshop. The trial day roughly follows the current training curriculum and takes place in small groups on different days.

Boys and Girls Day

Moreover, we take part in the Boys and Girls Day program. It lets students take a peek at jobs that are not typically associated with their own gender and experience part of a regular work day in that job.
