What tasks are there in the first year of training?

This varies for each profession, but we take great care to offer a range of tasks and thus broad-based training.

We make sure that we offer extremely practical training. That also includes theory, which is offered in vocational schools and on additional courses. It is important, however, to get to grips with the task at hand in order to learn the process in day-to-day operations.
