Practical in-company training
Trainees learn the basic techniques of moulding, smelting and casting in our own foundry. They learn all about casting production processes, moulding and casting tools, moulding materials for moulds and cores and how to test these and about metallic materials, manufacturing and testing technologies, material technologies, machinery and equipment, control and information technology. The contents of the training course include aspects of electrical engineering, technical communication and maintenance as well as production control, transport and storage, quality assurance, chemical processes and environmental protection.
Theoretical vocational school training
The training course takes place in parallel in the company and in the vocational school. The specialist knowledge required is taught at the Regional Technological Vocational Training Centre in Kiel. Lessons take place in 10 three-week blocks. As a rule the training course lasts 3.5 years. This can be shortened for trainees who achieve good results.
