FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, GERMANY – At the end of summer 2017, 109 trainees and students on courses of dual study started out on their professional careers with Rolls-Royce Power Systems and its subsidiaries in Germany and abroad. “For 98 years now, we have been providing young people with training of a very high standard and simultaneously securing our contact with the qualified specialists of the future,” said Marcus A.

Training and dual study courses in Friedrichshafen
A total of 54 apprentices and 16 students of technology from the Cooperative State University began courses of training at the Friedrichshafen location. Among them are two refugees who gained their initial professional entry qualifications at the MTU Friedrichshafen subsidiary before being accepted for traineeships in metalcrafts technology. Consisting of 20 new apprentices, the largest group is made up of industrial mechanics. “Our apprentices and students have chosen a first-rate employer. Rolls-Royce Power Systems is an international company that can offer young people a wide range of career opportunities,” said Patrick Müller, who heads HR International and Shared Services Germany at Rolls-Royce Power Systems. “Our Works Council commits itself to getting training placements for as many young people as possible every year. We are really pleased that Rolls-Royce Power Systems takes the same line. Every company needs a mixture of young and old,” added Alexandra Klatt, member of the Works Council at MTU Friedrichshafen.

Training at other locations in Germany
At the L`Orange subsidiary in Glatten (Black Forest), ten industrial mechanics and four students on dual courses embarked on four different study programs. MTU Onsite Energy Systems in Ruhstorf (Lower Bavaria) is running courses for one specialist in warehouse logistics and one industrial management assistant whilst two industrial management assistants and one electronics technician for industrial systems began training in Augsburg. And at MTU Reman Technologies in Magdeburg, courses are underway for two cutting machine operators and four industrial mechanics.

Courses at international locations
The Bergen Engines subsidiary in Norway is running courses for twelve apprentices in seven skill areas. Two are undertaking a four-year study program similar to the dual study courses in Germany – they spend three days a week at college and two at the company. Two production specialists are also undergoing training at MTU Onsite Energy in Mankato (USA).
