Why did you select Manz when looking for a suitable company to complete a vocational training program?
During school, I completed a one-week internship at Manz AG and was allowed to work on various tasks, such as soldering grids or circuits on circuit boards. The highlight of my internship was a reversing contactor circuit which I was allowed to wire. This is used to operate a motor in clockwise and anticlockwise rotation. I really enjoyed everything and at the end of the week I was even offered an apprenticeship at Manz AG.
Are you happy with the training program? What is special about completing a vocational training program at Manz?
I am very satisfied with my apprenticeship at Manz. Already in the first year of my apprenticeship I can work independently and I am regarded as a fully-integrated employee of the company. In the beginning there are two basic trainings: on the one hand the basics of mechanical and on the other hand the basics of electrical skills. In the mechanical field, for example, filing, drilling, turning or milling are learned. In the electrical field we learn among other things to calculate voltages, currents, resistances or powers and we also learn to understand the connections between them. Furthermore, we are taught how electrical circuits are wired or how a switch cabinet of a machine is constructed. After the basic training you have the possibility to work in different departments to get an insight into which stations a product goes through before it is delivered to the customer.
What part of the training program do you have particularly fond memories of?
I remember very well that I was allowed to work on tasks I developed myself and that I always received really good support from the trainers. I was also very pleased that my own ideas were encouraged. And I learned that you can find the best solutions together in a team.
