At FFT Produktionssysteme GmbH & Co. KG, almost 70 young talents will start their vocational training (31) or dual studies (37) on 01 August 2019. The in-house training of young talents is an important factor for FFT in order to meet the high demand for qualified junior staff, to withstand the competition in the industry and to further develop the company and the technology for the future. FFT offers a modern learning environment and guarantees a high quality of training. Robotics, automation and production planning as well as modern information technologies, logistics and project management are part of the training.
The locations for vocational training are Fulda, Mücke and Schmalkalden. The new apprentices start in occupational fields such as technical product designer, production technologist, IT specialist, industrial mechanic, machining mechanic or mechatronics technician.
55 percent of the training places this year are in dual courses of study. Currently, BA studies are possible in the following areas: Mechanical Engineering (Design & Development, Virtual Engineering, Industrial Mechanics), Mechatronics and Automation, Industrial Engineering and Electrical Engineering. The dual studies take place at the Technical University Mittelhessen, the Dual University Baden-Württemberg, the Dual University Gera-Eisenach, the University of Applied Sciences Schmalkalden or the University of Applied Sciences Schweinfurt. An international employment during the study is possible depending upon operational area and is promoted by FFT.
The new "trainees and dualis" were welcomed as part of a two-day program in which they were able to get to know the company and important interfaces. In the first few days, we focused on team building. Together with the JAV and all "trainees and dualis" of the 2nd and 3rd year of apprenticeship, the inner city of Fulda was made unsafe in a Tablet Crime Rally. During the subsequent joint barbecue, everyone was able to get to know each other and to build first networks.
FFT is looking forward to the exciting time together with the motivated young employees.
