Training

that lives up to its name

Are you looking for a vocational training position? And not just any, but one with prospects for the future? Then you’re in the right place, because at GfE, training is a TOP priority. That starts with the training pay and doesn’t stop even with the recognition of your efforts. Does that sound good to you? Then read on.

“Dear trainees, we would like to make your beginning as interesting as possible,” said the instructor for training and development at GfE, welcoming the “newbies”. She also did her training at GfE. Like many before her, she was hired directly following her training.

First, get to know everyone and everything

And how does the training go? The first training day is a “getting-to-know-you” day with lots of new impressions. 

You will be introduced to your new workplace and your new tasks. During this, the accident prevention regulations, for example, and all relevant rules, procedures, and processes at GfE will be specified and very precisely explained. Company parking, canteen, work hours, breaks, vacation, everything you want to know, you will learn pretty much on the first day.

In the course of the week, you will be introduced to all the people in the company who are important for you: among others, your trainer or foreman in production and the employees you will be working with.

We will discuss with you the procedures in the company and what jobs you should first take on as a trainee.

You can start your training at GfE in these fields!

Production and technology

Do you prefer to be hands on and want to know what it’s like to operate and maintain our systems together in the team? You will learn how our products are manufactured in your training.

A responsible job: controlling and monitoring chemical processes and automated production systems. As a chemical technician, you help the mostly automated apparatuses and systems to function optimally and ensure the quality of the products. You control and maintain production systems and collect and log operational data. Basic products are prepared, samples taken, simple chemical and physical product analyses performed.

Requirements:

Milling, grinding, and lathing. With the help of computer-controlled milling machines, grinders, or lathes, called CNC machines, specialists in metal technology in the field of machining create components or assemblies for machines. For this, you set the machine so that the end product has the right form and size and monitor the control components during production. Once a component is complete, you check the quality of the end product.

Requirements:

Min. qualifying lower secondary school certificate, technical aptitude, technical understanding, and basic spatial understanding

Length of training:

2 years

Foundry mechanics smelt the casting metal and add alloy components. You learn the foundations of smelting technology while you process, run, and monitor the molten metal. Recognizing problems in the production run and taking suitable measures to eliminate them are as much a part of your job as collecting operating data and presenting the process control and its evaluation.

Requirements:

Good qualifying school certificate from lower secondary or secondary school

You are interested in mathematics and technology. You enjoy careful work and have an inclination for handling machinery, devices, and systems.

Machines make work easier - that makes you indispensable. As an industrial mechanic, you are an expert in machines. You build, monitor, and maintain individual components and whole devices. The care and reliability you show in doing so keeps production going.

Industrial mechanics play a leading role in the machine-based production process. In your training, you will learn how to set up, retool, and operate production systems. So that all machines operate independently and perfectly, you check them for malfunctions and eliminate problems. Before starting repairs, you deal with materials and replacement parts or make them yourself.

Requirements:

Good qualifying school certificate from lower secondary school, secondary school, or university entrance/vocational diploma;

Good knowledge of mathematics, physics, and technology. You like to work carefully and have good spatial sense.

Length of training:

3.5 years

As a machine and plant operator, you are, as the name implies, primarily responsible for machines and plants. That means you equip, retool, and operate machinery – frequently several at once. For that, you also prepare operating procedures, check machine functions, and put machines into operation. And of course so that everything runs smoothly and the machine doesn’t give up after the first run, you must also constantly monitor the (production) process.

Requirements:

Min. qualifying secondary school certificate, good basic understanding of mathematics, independence, great commitment, inclination for handling technical devices, machines, and systems

Length of training:

2 years

As a future mechatronics technician, you build systems that consist of both mechanical and electronic or information technology components.

Chemistry is part of everyday life. In your varied training, you will get to know the basics of the process and systems technology you will use in the creation of a variety of products. As a chemical production specialist, you operate and monitor systems for the manufacturing and processing of chemical materials according to work schedules. You fill chemicals into vats and containers and control temperature, pressure, amounts, and flow rates. You ensure a smooth process. Your monitoring of the production process ensures the quality of innovative products.

Requirements:

Min. qualifying secondary school certificate, independence, interest in technology

2 years

Metal process technologists use mills, thermoforming machines, presses, and forging lines to process metal into sheets, beams, plates, moldings, wire, or forgings. You set up the production systems, install rollers and other forming tools, heat induction and forging furnaces. If necessary, you trim the primary material, feed the manufacturing systems, monitor and control the forming processes. You test the dimensional tolerance, shape, and surface of your products. You then treat the products, finish the surfaces of workpieces, or cut sheets, steel bars, or pipes.

Requirements:

A good qualifying lower secondary or secondary school certificate. Interest in science, especially in the areas of mathematics and physics, technical aptitude and technical understanding
