PIA trains top-performing apprentices

Published on Apr 1, 2021


The effort and hard work put into training pays off. Once again, this year's apprentices achieved outstanding results in their final exams.

The trainees Verena Schlosser, Nico Kohl, Tim Kleindienst, Tobias Gnan and Georg Böhm completed their training very successfully. It is absolutely gratifying that Verena Schlosser achieved an average of 1.1 in her final vocational school certificate and 1.6 in her skilled worker certificate, and Tobias Gnan achieved an average of 1.5 in his final vocational school certificate and 1.4 in his skilled worker certificate, for which he was honored by the Upper Palatinate government.

The entire PIA Automation Amberg is proud of this "success story" of a special kind. Once again, two of the site's trainees passed their final exams with very good grades. In addition, all five trainees have “straight A’s” in their skilled worker certificates.

"This is the confirmation of the good training that all trainees have received for years," says PIA’s Managing Director Armin Schalk.

According to Armin Schalk, the head of training Stephan Schmalzl also played a significant role in the success, and he attests to his good hand in dealing with the trainees in addition to a high level of technical qualification.

On average, PIA Amberg trains 28 apprentices (mechatronics engineers, cutting machine operators, technical product designers, IT specialists and dual students). The offer for further training possibilities is aligned by PIA according to the company’s needs like this year’s training as "specialist for warehouse logistics".

We are very proud of you and wish you all the best and an exciting start into your professional future.  We are looking forward to a continued good cooperation!
