“Work experience at ERCO as a pupil enabled me to learn more about a variety of skilled occupations in the technical field. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to train as a machine and system operator at ERCO. When I had my qualification, I was keen to keep going and add further skills. So ERCO offered me a second training post – this time as a tool mechanic. I think it’s great to be given this further opportunity!”

Lampros Ioannou – Tool Mechanic, 2 year of training

Training with ERCO - Experiences

“The option of dual studies at ERCO is fantastic. Combining my training and studies with daily work gives what I learn strong practical relevance. When I need to prepare for specific exams at university I am given valuable help by ERCO’s various teams. It may be more time-consuming and the learning curve is steeper than in school – but successes in your studies will pay off later in your job!”

Dennis Kotzian - Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronics), 3rd year of studies

“For me it was important to work a variety of different and interesting jobs early in my training. ERCO made this possible, placing considerable trust in me. In each department I was fully integrated in day-to-day operations. This allowed me to be actively involved in projects, meetings and events, and afforded me opportunities such as going along to see suppliers.”

Patrick Sapel - Bachelor of Science (Industrial Engineering and Management), 4th year of study

“I had so many questions at the start of my training – finishing school to take up training is, after all, a big step. Colleagues at ERCO showed me though how easy it is to make this change and to feel “at home”. The good working environment in the various departments and having specific points of contact helped me to accept each change as a new challenge and to enjoy facing it.”

“ERCO actively encourages the participation in a variety of programming and digital technology seminars. As part of my training they taught me a great deal about relevant aspects which I can now readily apply in practice. My first year of training, which I spent at the Technical Institute in Lüdenscheid, set me up well for my training.”

Thorben Renfordt – Electronics Engineer, 4th year of study

“Training at ERCO gives me the opportunity to gain international job experience early on. I work in Marketing, which means I am in regular contact with our customers, service providers and sales staff worldwide. It was quite a challenge for me at first, but now I really enjoy it. And as a bonus I get to improve my English!”

Trainees cook with ERCO chef
The trainee cooking sessions with ERCO’s chef never fail to disappoint. The three-course meal prepared is served up and enjoyed together with ERCO’s management team, giving the trainees opportunity to address the top level with a diversity of interesting questions.

ERCO – more than just training

Trainee trip
Good cooperation in the team often is the prerequisite for one’s own job satisfaction and the quality of work with other employees and customers. But satisfactory teamwork doesn’t just happen! Teamwork is a complex process which needs to be driven and sustained continuously. Focus at the annual trainee trips therefore is given to “team building”.
