Good to know

Depending on your previous education, the duration of your training can be shortened. In addition, there is the colloquial "performance reduction" - or more correctly - "early admission to the final examination". This can be done on the basis of particularly good performance.

There are no fixed application deadlines for our apprenticeships. You can apply at any time. Even if we do not currently offer any apprenticeships, we are always pleased to receive unsolicited application.

After we have received your application, we will check it carefully and, in the best case, invite you to an interview or even to a trial working day. Please be patient, as the processing time can vary depending on the number of applications.

Our trainees attend a vocational school in Cologne either twice a week or in blocks, depending on their occupational field.
