The training of young people and accompanying them on their way into professional life has been part of the corporate philosophy of Diesel Technic for many years. “Qualified trainees of today are the specialists and managers of tomorrow – Diesel Technic therefore attaches great importance to the takeover of the graduated after their training or dual training program”, declared Linda Witte, Training Officer at Diesel Technic AG. With professional perspectives and further training opportunities, the company group wishes to bind its own junior staff as a valuable asset in the long term.
In addition to passing their final examinations, all six clerks in wholesale and foreign trade are delighted about their respective acquired qualification as European Clerk. They attended a two-year further education course at the IHK (Chamber of Industry and Commerce) in addition to their vocational school classes. Within the framework of six-week internships abroad, they reinforced the teams at locations in France, Spain and the Netherlands.
During the preparation of their final projects, three of the graduates put what they had learned to the test in practice. The development of a test bench and programming of an application for the simplification and acceleration of user administration in the ERP system of Diesel Technic are two of the impressive projects. They are already being implemented and provide added value for the Company.
In addition to the official certificate presentation by the IHK, a graduation party organized by Diesel Technic will take place in February. In convivial company, the graduates will celebrate their success in the final examinations, together with parents, friends and or partners, trainers and colleagues.
