For over twenty years, AUMA has supported engineer development through apprenticeship schemes. Since 1989, the manufacturer and global supplier of electric actuators has trained over one hundred apprentices. A recent success is Tom Gibbs’ graduation from a scheme at Auma Actuators Ltd.
Following a three year on-site education programme encompassing a wide variety of functions of AUMA’s business, Tom excelled in his understanding of the company‘s products and their ability to support wide ranging process control applications. Having completed an additional course in CAD training to enhance his skills, Tom is now employed in the company’s after-sales and customer support department.
AUMA UK’s investment in training sits within a wider international group commitment to provide on-the-job development to engineers of the future. At AUMA’s main manufacturing campus in Muellheim, Germany the company employs an average of five apprentices each year and has a dedicated workshop to support this programme.
