"This is now my third year of apprenticeship at EBNER. I am about to be qualified as a universal welder and have not regretted my decision once. I have learned that welding is actually a quite complicated and difficult job, but at the same time very challenging and rewarding. In addition to the excellent professional education I have been offered here, great emphasis is placed on the personal and social development of the trainees, as well as their ability to work in a team. The trainees are also offered English and Math classes, so they can deepen their basic knowledge in these areas as well. I am especially impressed with the interesting job opportunities I will have here once I finish my apprenticeship program."
