On Monday 1 September 2014, 23 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 88 apprentices at its premises in Wolfurt, offering specific programmes for metal engineering (mechanical engineering, steel construction engineering and machining engineering), design engineering, electrical engineering (systems and industrial engineering) and for information technology.

Doppelmayr's apprenticeship programmes trace back to the origins of the company in 1892. This year marks the 35-year anniversary of the specially set-up training workshop. Many years of experience combined with state-of-the art technology and a highly skilled team of mentors and coaches pave the way for excellent job opportunities and a promising future with a renowned international company.

Ever since the award 'Distinguished training company' ('Ausgezeichneter Lehrbetrieb') has been established in 1997, Doppelmayr bears this title. This also reflects in the apprentices' performances. Every year they achieve excellent results in the Apprentices' Skills Competition ('Lehrlingsleistungswettbewerb'). In the last 10 years, the Doppelmayr apprentices have won the first prize for mechanical engineering, steel construction engineering, electrical engineering (systems and industrial engineering) 18 of 26 times in this competition of the electrical and metal industry of Vorarlberg.

Doppelmayr will again take on apprentices in the next year and will offer apprenticeship taster days between mid January and late March 2015. Those interested in participating may contact Mrs Renate Prinz from Apprentice Training.
