Young apprentices successfully complete training at MV WERFTEN

Twelve apprentices celebrated their last day of training today at a small ceremony held in Wismar.

Wismar, 31. January 2019 | Celebrations in Wismar: Twelve apprentices – six construction mechanics, four plant mechanics and two manufacturing mechanics – from Wismar, Rostock and Stralsund received their certificates of completion today. The young men have just completed three and a half years of vocational training.

The ceremony was attended by representatives of the MV WERFTEN management team, training supervisors from each of the three locations, the works councils as well as representatives of the vocational schools and chambers of industry and commerce in Schwerin and Rostock. Two apprentices from Stralsund provided special cause for celebration this year as they were able to complete their training in less time, in two and a half years, and with excellent results.

"We offer you our heartfelt congratulations. Today, you have reached the first milestone on your career path," announced Raimon Strunck, Chief Technology Officer and board member during the handover. "Highly qualified employees are the foundation of our company. We attach particular importance to the training of our junior staff."

The newly-qualified skilled workers will begin the next phase of their lives as early as 1 February. MV WERFTEN offered each apprentice a permanent employment contract. We are pleased that all of the trainees decided to continue their careers at MV WERFTEN where they can take an active role in the implementation of our unique shipbuilding projects," continued Strunck.

There are currently 220 apprentices and 33 dual-system students studying at the shipbuilding group's three locations. When the new training year begins on 2 September 2019, MV WERFTEN will employ 67 apprentices and six dual-system students.
