On Monday 3 September 2012, 22 new apprentices started their training with Doppelmayr Seilbahnen in Wolfurt, choosing a highly promising career path which will enhance their future prospects. Doppelmayr now trains a total of 76 apprentices at its premises in Wolfurt, offering specific programmes for metal engineering (mechanical engineering or steel construction engineering) design engineering, electrical engineering (systems and industrial engineering) and for information technology.

Our apprentices' top results at the 2012 Apprentices' Skills Competition ("Lehrlingsleistungswettbewerb") once again underline the excellent quality of Doppelmayr's apprenticeship programmes.


In their trades, our apprentices were able to bring home 50% of the recognition awards of the Vorarlberg Chamber of Commerce: While Stefan Umjenovic won first price ('Landessieger') in mechanical engineering, Marcel Gasser, Marc Baldauf and Maximilian Pasi each secured second places.

Doppelmayr has been training apprentices ever since the company was founded. In order to guarantee first-quality training for its apprentices, the company set up its own training workshop in 1979. Doppelmayr's apprenticeship scheme combines many years of experience with state-of-the-art technology and a highly skilled team of mentors and coaches, thus paving the way for excellent job opportunities and a promising future with a renowned international company.

Doppelmayr will again take on apprentices in the next year and will offer apprenticeship taster days between mid January and late March 2013. Those interested in participating may contact Mrs Simone Sinz from Human Resources.
