What is the importance of technical training

Young technical talent

Do you like to hold the results of your work in your hands? In technical training, craftsmanship and brains come together. Get to know our different apprenticeships in the fields of metal, electrical and quartz glass.

Our young technicians start out in the training workshop. During the first 6 to 12 months, the most important technical basics are taught in core groups - these are permanent teams consisting of colleagues from your professional profile. Only then are you well prepared for your first assignment in a specialist department, where you work with precious metals such as gold, silver or platinum, but also with other materials such as high-purity quartz glass.

There you will learn the work steps in assembly, production, maintenance and quality assurance from scratch. There is also the theoretical basics in the professional or university. Until your final practical exam, you will meet regularly with your learning guides and colleagues from your core group in the learning workshop. Here you work together on exciting projects and prepare for exams together. At our location in Bitterfeld, the basics are taught in an external training center.
