22 youths start their new careers at Kathrein

From the classroom to the job: On 1st September2014, another 22 young people from the region started their training at the KATHREIN-Werke KG in Rosenheim. This year there are six electronics technicians, five industrial clerks, two technical product designers as well as nine industrial mechanics.

The first week’s program was full and varied. The newcomers were welcomed by Norbert Schindler, Member of the Board of Executives and Vanessa Hochrein, Director of Education and Training along with the training team. Afterwards there was time to get to know each other and also their workshops.
The highlight of the first day was a visit to the Herbstfest in the evening. The Herbstfest offered the perfect opportunity for the trainees in their second and third years, and some "old timers” to get to know the instructors in more detail.

The next morning the trainees met with the Red Cross in Rosenheim for the first of a two day first-aid course for first aiders within the company. After the course, the young trainees were given a presentation and important information about working for the company. The focus here was on safety at work and the presentation of the youth delegation (JAV) and the works council. When their staff ID cards had been issued they could then officially log in to their respective workshops and training departments and start on Friday.

The training team is pleased to have motivated and enthusiastic trainees once again and is also hoping for good candidates for next year’s training in 2015.From next year in addition to the dual system training, Kathrein will be providing mechanical engineering courses in cooperation with the College of Rosenheim. More technical and economic studies in the dual system are planned.
