Print media technologist

Print media technologist (m/f/d)

Media technologists operate large, modern digital printing machines and are responsible for preparing the associated processes. This requires accuracy and a fine grasp of color. They test and check the print results for a smooth flow to ensure the quality of the end product. They are also responsible for commissioning and repairing the electronically controlled printing machines. With all this accuracy, there is one thing that should not be overlooked, and that is creativity.


Programme length: 3 years

Start date: 1 September

School-leaving qualification: intermediate school-leaving certificate (equivalent to GCSE)

The contents of the training

During the operational part, you will mainly be working in the production halls. You should therefore be someone who is enthusiastic about engineering and new technologies, has no problem with machine noise, and can tolerate the smell of chemicals, solutions and colors. Since you will be operating the digital printing machines under the guidance of experienced colleagues, you should have the ability to work in a team and concentrate for a long time. Apart from that, there is often high pressure to present the products to customers on time. 

In addition to the theory, you will get to experience the everyday working life in all departments, which is filled with tasks that have to be completed, challenges that arise, and you will get to see how great it feels when a project is successfully completed.

Mathematics will be a huge part of everyday life in school, since the calculations of areas, dimensions and weights are important. Plants and technology also play a major role; after all, that is where you will learn to deal with faults in the printing process.

During your training period, you will take an intermediate exam in the 2nd year of training and a final exam at the end of the training, for which, we will prepare you well.

Together through the apprenticeship

If you add up all apprenticeship years and training occupations, a total of 45 apprentices are learning at our site. This is a big team and in the truest sense of the word, too. In addition to joint activities and annual excursions, the individual trainees rely on each other every day in their various training occupations. The work processes run hand in hand, which is why it is all the more important to know and understand one another:
The red warning signal of the floor production plant lights up. Machine and system operator Elias detects a fault in the system – a sensor holder is defective He discusses the further course of action together with the industrial mechanic Lukas and the electronics technician for industrial engineering Leon.
Industrial mechanic Lukas takes the sensor holder to the workshop to repair it. He then attaches it to the system and hands it over to Leon. The electronics technician for industrial engineering now adjusts the sensor correctly using a laser. After the machine and system operator restarts production, industrial management assistant Luzie can be sure that the ordered laminate is produced as planned and loaded onto the truck. She transmits her goods transport to Lukas, specialist for warehouse logistics. He can load the order and send it on its way to the customer.
