Herrenknecht hosted a Training Day in July at its Schwanau, Germany, state-of-the-art plant, to attract smart, young men and women as applicants for the 2021 training year. 

About 100 visitors attended and showed strong interest in an apprenticeship at Herrenknecht, reported Klaus Himmelsbach, head of training. 

Planning the event, of course, required great attention to Coronavirus-related guidelines and requirements throughout the day-long event, such as online (contact-free) pre-registration for fixed appointments, distance markings, availability and use of disinfectants, and wearing face coverings.  

Other details ensured it was an informative, cohesive and varied experience. Small groups started the day observing the live presentation of two, 10-meter-diameter boring machines for a railway tunnel project in the United Kingdom. 

In the training workshop, 10 practically designed stations reflected the wide range of possibilities: 12 different occupations in the industrial, technical, commercial and IT areas, as well as two options for joining the company while studying. 

Current Herrenknecht apprentices and trainees, as well as training staff and supervisors, responded to attendees’ questions about the application process, theoretical and practical content of the apprenticeships and degree internship programs, training schedules, and many other topics.
