It is impossible to imagine industrial businesses without machines. And it is just as impossible to imagine machines without industrial mechanics. Industrial mechanics make sure that machines and production facilities are always ready for use and are able to install the machines and even produce the machine parts needed by themselves. But this is just the start. You are, of course, responsible for operating, servicing and repairing the machines and facilities. Which is why you not only have the necessary technical skills but are also taught to program the machines yourself and by doing so sort out any errors.
During this 3½ year apprenticeship to become an industrial mechanic, you first learn about four main areas. You get to know how to make small individual parts in the department responsible for building precision equipment and how to make large components in the mechanical engineering and plant construction division. The production technology department teaches you about how new machines and parts are made and the maintenance division how to service, maintain and repair the machines at the company you are doing your apprenticeship in.
You must have a 'Hauptschulabschluss' [school leaving certificate (age 16)] with good grades in Maths, Physics and German and be interested in technology. It is easier to learn this profession if you have good sight and hearing and work in an attentive, reliable and careful manner. Manual dexterity, spatial awareness and a knowledge of IT complete your profile.
Do you want to make your way up the career ladder once you've completed your apprenticeship? No problem – you can make the most of our Group's excellent further training programme to do just that. As soon as you've gathered enough work experience, you can take part in a variety of courses – for example to become a specialist technician.
You get to see a whole range of different areas doing an apprenticeship at a large company such as REMONDIS and there are good opportunities to make a career for yourself here. I decided to join REMONDIS as the quality of the apprenticeship was so good. I was sent to various different industrial sites as soon as I had done a basic course in metals. I really like the fact that I get to work at so many different locations. People thinking of doing an apprenticeship to become an industrial mechanic should have a healthy dose of ambition, be interested in what's going on around them and be good at working with their hands.
