Trainer – Food Technology/Mechanical

In the classroom and on the shopfloor

Swiss VET is based on a dual-track apprenticeship system — practical training at a company’s premises is supplemented by vocational and general educational subjects at a VET institute.

SkillSonics can set up training workshops for a client’s employed and contracted technicians, as well as for its vendors’ employees. An entry-level technician gets practical shop-floor training and theoretical instruction. The trainee learns the company’s work processes and its cultural norms. Most importantly, the technician is ready to perform independently at international skill levels after completing the program. Existing technicians can take accelerated courses to upgrade their skills in areas where the company has identified skill gaps or wants to reskill its workforce.
