The trained warehousing and logistics specialists deal with the storage and shipping of goods. The logisticians use forklift trucks to stow the goods and products in the designated places in close consultation with the carriers. They also optimize storage systems and logistics processes.
Programme length: 3 years
Start date: 1 September
School-leaving qualification: Secondary school leaving certificate (equivalent to GCSE) with good grades
The foundation of a warehousing and logistics specialist includes comprehensive knowledge of the development of goods within the company. In other words, you will learn which path raw materials and products take with all stations from entrance to exit. You will acquire a driving license for industrial trucks, for example forklift trucks, in the very first year. In this way, you can already start accepting and loading goods directly as well. Then there is also the theme of work organization and transport security. The topics of loading, order picking and quality control will accompany you through the training right from the start.
In the second year, you will deepen your knowledge of loading, order picking and quality control. In addition, there are topics such as scheduling and delivery note creation. And by then, the intermediate examination will already be due.
The topic of scheduling will be continued in the third year of training. You will also deal with logistic processes and related quality measures. So that you are well prepared for the final examination.
As varied as our training programs are, the path between graduation and starting training is often just as varied. Some of them already know in their school days exactly which profession their heart beats for. It may so happen that during a study course or an apprenticeship, you find out that you are not on the right track and that you are reorienting yourself. Or you probably even have a degree in your pocket and feel like you haven't reached the end yet. Every path is the right one, if you follow your gut feeling. Here, you can see what experiences our apprentices have gathered:
First sports assistant, then event expert and now specialist for warehouse logistics at SWISS KRONO in Heiligengrabe Kevin Apitz has always liked to be on the move and has now, after only two years of training, arrived at his dream job. The training gave him a lot of joy and since his grades were so good, he was able to shorten it by a whole year. Kevin's conclusion: It is worthwhile to start over.
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.
