Marvin Lange, who completed his training at AGRAVIS Technik Raiffeisen GmbH in Bockenem, received two awards: best trainee in year and best vocational college student. He was followed in second place by Marvin Wolter, who trained at AGRAVIS Technik Weser-Allee GmbH in Göxe. Good results were also achieved by Timo Washausen, AGRAVIS Technik Raiffeisen AG in Northeim, and Fabian Klages, AGRAVIS Technik Heide-Altmark GmbH in Hoheneggelsen, who also qualified in farm and construction machinery mechatronics.
“A great success story for the four trainees and of course for the AGRAVIS Technik group,” is the response of the three managing directors, Andreas Meister of AGRAVIS Technik Raiffeisen GmbH, Holger Popillas of AGRAVIS Technik Weser-Aller GmbH, and Wolfgang Diedrich of AGRAVIS Technik Heide-Altmark GmbH. The technophile trainees threw themselves into their course from day one, showing initiative and ambition. With good manual skills, previous knowledge gained through a background in agriculture or technology and excellent grades from school, they had all the requirements to do really well in the final exams, say the managing directors. “From the start of the course they worked independently and produced high quality work. Their commitment has been well rewarded with these excellent results.”
