125 top apprentices in the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) region Schwarzwald-Baar-Heuberg completed their examinations with a grade point average of 1.4 or better (with 1.0 being the best possible result).
Wjatscheslaw Peters, an apprentice machine and plant operator at MS-Schramberg, concluded his training as the best apprentice in his profession in the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg.
The corresponding ceremony was held in front of approx. 500 guests in the Dr.-Ernst-Hohner concert hall in Trossingen. In addition to the apprentices and their parents, the instructors and examiners, representatives of the companies training the apprentices, public officials as well as members of the IHK plenary assembly and the IHK vocational education committee were also present.
Initially, Wjatscheslaw Peters had worked for a few years in the MS-Schramberg production department. After his supervisor had alerted him to the opportunity of completing an apprenticeship, Peters made the decision to give it a try even though that meant he would incur a financial loss initially. In any case, Peters said, he really gave it his all and was able to convince the examination board this past July with his performance.
Alexander Fritz, educational adviser of the IHK Schwarzwald-Baar-Heuberg, was full of praise. Currently, MS-Schramberg has 600 employees and 30 apprentices – most of which will stay at the company after completing their training. "The quality of the training and the professional environment are just right here," Fritz lauded.
