Training at WEPA

As a responsible company, WEPA has always invested in the training of young people and thus its own new professional generation. In the scope of a dual training, partially in the scope of a work and study program, we offer our trainees the chance to obtain future-orientated professional qualifications. In addition, WEPA promotes the further development of personal competences amongst its trainees, such as cultivating their ability to act independently and with self-responsibility, as well as their willingness and ability to work in teams.

As a family-run company, we place great value on demand-orientated training with a high rate of trainees subsequently being taken on. Many former trainees have been with the company for years. 

WEPA values well-qualified young future employees. If you too would like to discover our world, submit your application now to ausbildung@wepa.de and design your future together with us! Your contact person for professional training is Ms Julia Schröder.
