For us, apprenticeship means investing in the future: in yours and ours. That's why we offer training in eight different professions at our Training & Education Center (TEC) in Rheinböllen every year. Each year, 15 new trainees start their career with us. We currently have around 60 young people in training.
We can offer future trainees the opportunity to choose one of seven different apprenticeships. Our Training & Education Center is located in Rheinböllen, Germany, at our headquarters. You can find more detailed information and training content for the respective professions here:
HAHN Automation offers you many possibilities: We have regional roots and are on the move worldwide - a young company with strong growth. Training is of particular importance to us, because we rely on our self-trained junior staff. The chance to be employed by us after the training is above average. We understand qualified professional training to be more than just teaching specialist knowledge. It is particularly important to us that our trainees can develop their personalities and are encouraged to fully develop their strengths.
After your apprenticeship at HAHN Automation all ways are open to you: no matter if you want to continue working in your learned profession and gain professional experience, or if you decide for further education in the form of studies, technician or similar - we are happy to support and accompany you in all steps. Even if you want to take a completely different path, we fully understand your decision and will support you in doing so.
Once a year, two of our technical commercial trainees from Germany are given the opportunity to get to know our subsidiary in the USA. They spend three full weeks on the other side of the Atlantic. In return, trainees from the USA also have the opportunity to come to Germany.
The exchange program enables the trainees to get to know our location in the USA, its working methods, technologies and production processes. They spend a wonderful and unforgettable time, which contributes to seeing HAHN as one company - and not as a union of regional locations. During this time, you will keep a diary of your time abroad, which allows us to share these exciting and enriching challenges.
Exchange as life experience - language and culture.
In addition to language and culture, trainees get to know many new people and impressions and learn to deal with difficulties and solve problems independently. This strengthens their self-confidence and enriches their personal life experience. You can read about what our trainees experienced during their exchange in the experience reports!

My tasks at HAHN Automation:
My daily tasks in the second year of my apprenticeship mainly include the machining and assembly of mechanical components, as well as the programming of mechanical systems. We learn and use a wide variety of techniques, which are also helpful in other areas, such as the installation of electrical assemblies and components. Finally, the previously installed electrical and pneumatic controls systems have to be tested. Thus, we are involved in the upcoming projects from the beginning to the end.
That' s why I like working at HAHN Automation:
I especially like the fact that you are always faced to new challenges due to the different systems that HAHN Automation manufactures. Also by using the latest and most modern technology, I get the opportunity to learn something new every day and to further expand my education.
Projects together with the other trainees provide a lot of fun and variety. You can laugh a lot together and at the same time, we have the opportunity to support each other. The trainers at HAHN Automation always have an open ear for us, whether it is about personal concerns or work-related questions.
My special moment at HAHN Automation:
For me it is always something special when I leave the training workshop. HAHN Automation has given me the opportunity to go on assembly trips during my apprenticeship and above all, to get a better insight into my future field of work as well as into the work of other companies.
I have also experienced many great moments at the various company events, such as the laser tag trip, where all trainees participated or the Wings for Life Run.
