What are the benefits of a traineeship?

Waldemar Link GmbH & Co. KG provides training in order to recruit new members to our team, and with great success. The company has its own training workshop, which is used to provide direct individual supervision for the duration of the traineeship.


What are the highlights?


Special mention should be given to the various projects in which our trainees fabricate, assemble, and adjust everything themselves, i.e. from reading the drawing and producing the basic dimensions through to tightening the last screw. In the process, they familiarize themselves with how components function. Opposite are two pictures from the Herkules Project.

Brief description of a traineeship


In the first year and a half, basic skills such as filing, drilling, turning, milling, and testing are taught. Projects give trainees the opportunity to learn how to assemble and adjust a component. Then trainees spend time in all the departments and learn how to operate state-of-the-art CNC machines.



Conclusion


I find the traineeship at LINK very interesting and varied. We all get on really well together here. Our instructors mentor us throughout our traineeship and make sure that the actual training is tailored to suit each individual person. If we have any issues, they are always there to help us. In the first eighteen months we mainly learn basic skills so that we can accumulate enough experience to be ready to sit the intermediate exam. We attend vocational school in blocks, so Mr. S. prepares us very thoroughly. Then we spend time working in the various departments, such as CNC, grinding shop, assembly, etc. I found it really interesting to see how the products gradually take shape, so when you see the finished item, you understand how it was produced.
 Then it is already time for the final exam, for which we are prepared very well by our instructors.
