Mikron Automation expands its apprenticeship program in the field of multi-skilled mechanics

Boudry, August 2017 – Dedicated to its educational responsibilities, Mikron Automation decided to expand its apprenticeship program by increasing the team from 16 to 40 apprentices.

For the second year at Mikron SA Boudry, ten young apprentices have started their four-year vocational training as multi-skilled mechanics, bringing the total to 34 apprentices. The training of multi-skilled mechanics is a tradition at Mikron. For more than 35 years, Mikron SA Boudry has had its own education center with an apprentice instructor. In 2014, the management decided that this education should be a strategic pillar at the company, and opted for an ambitious program to ramp up from 16 to 40 apprentices. Up to 2014, the center accommodated four apprentices per year, making a total of 16. To ensure the best environment, a second full-time instructor has been hired to mentor the apprentices.
