What if I have to terminate the training at an early stage?
This is possible in principle, but depends on various conditions, so it is not possible to give a general answer to this question. As a rule, we always try to find a good solution.
Can I also work part-time at your house?
To work part-time is possible during a employment relationship, but not during a training.
Is it possible to take a look at the factory?
Of course. We repeatedly offer factory tours – for groups or school classes in most cases. Please contact Laura Wachalski, phone: +49 5121 505-274
Is it possible to complete a part of my training at your house abroad?
Unfortunately, this is not possible during training. The two-part training – thus vocational school attendance and the practical training in the company – is mandatory in Germany. Attending a German vocational school is compulsory.
What do I need to know about the training periods?
Our training courses take between two and three and a half years – depending on the training program.
A reduction of the training period is possible under certain conditions.
