Heidelberg training program kicks off 

Heidelberg has confirmed that 150 young apprentices will start their training or dual study program at the beginning of September. 

The experience of recent years also shows that 98 per cent of apprentices remain with the company after completing their training, and some receive an award for their training achievements. 

Heidelberg CEO Dr Ludwin Monz said, “In times when many companies are struggling with a shortage of skilled workers, we at Heidelberg focus on good training, which is often the starting point for a career in the company.”

The company offers training in fourteen occupational profiles at four locations in Germany: from electronics and industrial mechanics to the highly sought-after specialist IT and warehouse logistics to the broad field of mechatronics, media technology and materials testing. 

Additionally, there are many dual courses of study in business administration, technology and IT.

The stories of many long-standing employees show that apprentices make their way into the company. 

Achim Mergenthaler started an apprenticeship as a toolmaker in 1982 and is now head of the company’s global manufacturing network. 

To ensure such steps are possible, Heidelberg adapts its internal training courses to changing requirements. 

“We make an attractive and high-quality training offer to young people interested in future topics. We offer junior staff a long-term perspective at Heidelberg and in an exciting industry,” added Monz.

Training courses include a wide range of topics. All participants will learn about sustainability, which is part of the company’s Sustainability Navi initiative of the employers’ association. One of the aims of this initiative is to firmly anchor the topics of environmental protection and sustainability in the occupational profiles on offer.

Courses also touch on energy scouts. Heidelberg uses apprentices to detect hidden efficiency potential, develop measures and implement them.
