Lloyd Werft, the German shiprepair and refurbishment specialist, has invested €400,000 in training centre that will cater not just for the yard’s own apprentices, but also for engineering students in educational institutions in the Bremerhaven region.
In October last year a new training workshop was inaugurated. It serves as the training centre for the shipyard’s 44 apprentices, who learn their trades here, in parallel with time spent at the local careers college, as fitters, industrial and constructional mechanics or as cutting machine operators under the eyes of four trainers,” the company said in a statement.
“Alongside them are always two to three students gaining practical experience as part of their university courses. Not only Lloyd Werft benefits from this centre. Under a new training alliance agreement, trainees from other companies in Bremerhaven and Bremen also learn basic, professional skills here. The shipyard has invested €400,000 in this exemplary and future-oriented new centre,” lloyd Werft continued.
“Working at Lloyds is very special”, says training chief Bernd Woltmann. Apprentices have to be really smart, he adds, because work in a repair company demands a lot of creativity and flexibility, the company concluded.
