In recognition of our outstanding commitment to training, we received the Training Certificate from the Federal Agency for Employment in 2016. We are very proud of the quality of our training.


A "Made by HELLER" training programme puts you right at the front!

In addition to extensive practical experience at our modern workstations in our training workshop, your programme will be rounded out by sound theoretical knowledge. Throughout your training period, your trainers are your points of contact. They will provide you with one-to-one technical support and give you useful tips as well.


Joint actions strengthen team spirit.

To give you adequate opportunity to get to know one another, we have planned the following actions for the trainees:

  • familiarisation week (1st training year)

And of course there are plenty of other opportunities that will call on your team spirit. As part of the HELLER Apprentice Initiative (HAI), you will plan and devise your voluntary projects together, organise fund raising events and commit to integrating people with disabilities.

Teaching and learning factory & CNC ProfiTrainer

The key to qualified specialists

In the HELLER teaching and learning factory, the skills required to construct and manufacture a CNC machine tool can be learned and trained under real conditions. As a small equivalent of a large-scale machine tool, the HELLERCNC ProfiTrainer offers the same functionalities, acting as both the tool and the machine under construction at the same time. The much acclaimed HELLER teaching and learning factory and CNC ProfiTrainer concept is now successfully employed for educational and training purposes and is part and parcel of a "Made by HELLER" training programme.
