Apprenticeship

Pupils at CLAAS.

Do you want to start work in a practical role straight away? And create a solid foundation for the start of your career with first-class training? Then an exciting apprenticeship at CLAAS is the right choice for you.

Metalworking Expert

Drilling, filing, milling or sawing - your manual skills will be put to the test during your training as a metalworking expert at CLAAS! You will become an expert in manufacturing high-tech machines at Europe's leading manufacturer of harvesting machinery.

As a member of our team, you will work on various manufacturing processes and discover your new and exciting role which extends from preassembly through to final assembly of our products. As a metalworking expert, you will be responsible for producing assemblies and individual components. Your role will also involve assembling combine harvesters, forage harvesters and system vehicles.

Did you know?

A LEXION 780 combine harvester consists of 53,896 separate parts.
By way of comparison: A car consists of only around 10,000 separate parts

But that's not all: You will also monitor and optimise assembly processes and carry out very important quality assurance measures - these are essential points in the success of our products. Using master drawings to weld complex assemblies by hand is also no problem for you as a Metalworking expert. Working within our high quality standards, you will thus lay the foundation for the safety and longevity of our vehicles.

Do you have any questions about the apprenticeship or would you like to apply directly? Your contacts will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
