Vocational training with WIRTGEN

Learning in a powerful team

Vocational training plays a very important role in our company. There are currently 130 trainees at WIRTGEN GmbH, and around one third of our workforce was trained in recognized professions by our own company.

Our philosophy is to train the employees of tomorrow within our own company – this is a profitable investment in a safe future for both parties involved, as the consistent growth of the Group has meant that almost all trainees were taken on by the company after finishing their courses.
