We have been training around 25 young people every year since 1992. This has made us a successful and experienced training company. We have already been able to congratulate the national best air traffic clerk twice as well as several chamber bests in our other apprenticeship professions. Our trainees can draw on the extensive and well-founded specialist knowledge they have acquired during their training with us. We also see our apprentices as the next generation of the company. It is therefore important to us that they pass through the various departments in order to get to know the many facets of an airport operation. This promotes company-wide or even cross-company networking as well as helpful contact and exchange opportunities. Particular additional highlights during training include the introductory course, the trainee trip and the trainee party, which is organized by the trainees themselves.

You have the opportunity to choose between a variety of commercial, industrial-technical or security-related training professions.

Depending on the type of training, you will gain an insight into tasks typical of the profession and gain exciting experience in a wide range of areas at the airport.
