APPRENTICESHIP & TRAINING

We train: material tester (m/f) with the discipline metal technology

Since several years already has Werkstoffprüfung Kunze been given young people the chance to take an apprenticeship. Even though not all of them can be employed, the apprentices learn everything about material testing so that they can work in all areas of the steel- and material industry (for example car industry, naval architecture, off-shore-technique, etc.).
