Medium-sized companies rely on good training

[Translate to English:] In Freiburg nahm Timo Burgert die Ehrung zum 1. Kammersieger entgegen

Timo Burgert honored after apprenticeship at J. Schneider as regional winner

For the fourth time in a series, J. Schneider Elektrotechnik was educating a regional winner in the profession of "Elektroniker für Maschinen und Antriebstechnik".

After his graduation in 2013 at the Oken-Gymnasium Offenburg Timo Burgert had decided to start an apprenticeship in the company of J. Schneider  because of his technical and craft interests. The fact that this was the right decision for both sides has clearly shown in the course of the apprenticeship. In the practical part of the apprenticeship he got to know all areas from transformer construction to electronics up to the service center for electrical drives. Not least because of the training at the Offenburg medium-sized company is not only comprehensive but also interesting and varied. The theoretical part of the training was completed in the first year in the Gewerbeschule Offenburg, from the 2nd to 4th year of apprenticeship at the trade school in Kirchheim / Teck. In spring, Timo Burgert first passed the final exam with flying colors and was first awarded the Kammersieger by the Freiburg Chamber of Crafts. In the meantime, the honor for the Landessieger in Heidenheim has also been given. Thus, the young craftsman has automatically achieved the qualification to participate in the national competition in Oldenburg. There he will compete with the other national winners from all over Germany from 16 to 19 November. His future career is also firmly established: The J. Schneider company always likes to offer good young craftsmen an internal career path. Timo Burgert, for example, after completing a one-year trainee program in the company, will be trained as a master electrical engineering and business economist in Oldenburg, before continuing his career with J. Schneider. His three predecessors as state and chamber winner Johannes Eckert, Dennis Ehret and Tom Ostermann have remained loyal to their training company J. Schneider Elektrotechnik.
