Your apprenticeship at WMV in Windeck

Did you know that technical innovations from your home country are used by major brands all over the world? That you can work with us on solutions that drive automation forward and make manufacturing technologies more environmentally friendly? And that you can work independently on selected projects during your apprenticeship and have a say at eye level?

With us, you will work in an appreciative and supportive team right from the start. We help each other, talk openly about what we like – and what’s not going so well at the moment. In this way, we get better and better together, learn to trust each other and ensure that the job is fun.

One apprenticeship programme – all possibilities

And discover further opportunities that your professional future holds for you. Inter-company training in the training workshops at GLW or Reifenhäuser will also give you an insight into other companies.

As a WMV trainee, you are automatically part of our “Tafel” social project. You will help people in need in your region by supporting the food bank in Windeck with deliveries and setting up the food supply. In this way, you will develop your social skills and do something good for your region.


What our trainees say


“I like the fact that we are allowed to work independently from an early stage and that our trainers give us confidence. The team spirit is great. I really like our cool break room. As a project, we were allowed to design it ourselves with pallets so that we feel comfortable in it.”

Steven, 17 years old, 2nd year industrial mechanic apprentice

Frequently asked questions

How does my apprenticeship at WMV work?

Depending on the training programme, the apprenticeship lasts 3 or 3.5 years. The apprenticeship is dual, which means that you are employed in our company and attend vocational school in Hennef, Troisdorf and Cologne 1-2 days a week. The framework plan for your training is based on the IHK plan. As part of our inter-company training programme, you will also get to know other companies. This part of the training takes place in blocks.

How much will I earn during my apprenticeship?

The apprenticeship allowance is based on the IG-Metall training tariff.
