Apprenticeship process

If you have taken a look around the Sysmex website, you will have noticed that we like to do things well. In fact, we like doing everything as well as we can. And that includes our apprenticeships. Our apprenticeships last  three or even three-and-a-half years. That’s a long time. But the great thing is – once you have finished here, you will really understand your new profession. And surely that is what it is all about?

It usually passes far more quickly that you might expect. Just after you start and have got to know the departments and colleagues, you’ll be getting to grips with the first projects with others in the trainee group. These projects are carried out in parallel with the training periods in the various departments. So there is always something to do.

First year

In the first year, you’ll get to know all the departments that are relevant to the apprenticeship. Of course, there is always a particular department in which most of your training takes place. But it is important that we create links to the other departments. This will provide you with a great understanding of how the company works as a whole. It works best if you understand the overall procedures and work processes. This is the aims of the first year of training in all apprenticeships and dual study courses.



Second year

In the second year, you get to know additional departments that may not be related directly to your own training, but are still important for the company. Of course, training continues in your “home” department, and you will already be able to perform tasks on your own and support your colleagues.



Third year

In the third year, you broaden your knowledge further in the relevant discipline of your training. You will acquire the specialist know-how and be able to handle your own topics and look after a specific area of responsibility. Of course, preparing for the final exam is already important during this time, too. We will support you as well as we can with the necessary preparatory classes or the appropriate study time.

And then...

So before you know it, the training is over. Now what?

Of course the decision to stay with us has always been in your hands, and it always remains so. Our goal throughout your training, however, will have been to train professionals for our company. If we are all happy with one another, we hope we will be able to continue our relationship, and that you, now as a trained specialists, will be looking to embark on a career with us. Of course, we cannot promise anything but we try to facilitate your goals and wishes as far as possible! In the end, it’s all about the chemistry between you and us as a company. Experience teaches us that the apprenticeships are popular. We suspect – once you have finished – you will want to stay. 
We look forward to it.
