Federally recognized

The high-quality apprenticeship training programme has a long tradition at KNAPP. The company has trained apprentices successfully for more than 25 years. Currently, about 60 young individuals are being trained in the fields of mechatronics, metalworking, information technology and application development. In addition to comprehensive specialist training, the programme also focuses on promoting team spirit, creativity and problem-solving skills. KNAPP also encourages the apprentices to acquire the Higher Vocational Diploma and gives them opportunities to gain professional experience abroad.

This individual and made-to-measure training programme ensures top qualifications and yields the company’s finest future specialists. More than two-thirds of all apprentices remain with the company after concluding their training, with some later entering executive positions. In appreciation for this commitment, KNAPP was awarded the title “Federally Recognized Exceptional Apprentice Training Company”. In international competitions, the KNAPP AG has already received several prizes, an impressive demonstration of its expertise in apprenticeship training.
