Apprentice first to finish Endress+Hauser program 12 months early

Endress+Hauser has announced that its first apprentice has finished the company’s internal training program — and has graduated 12 months earlier than expected.

Mathew Kiem joined Endress+Hauser in October 2006 while enrolled fulltime at Ultimo TAFE. Kiem has now finished his training and is excited to start his career with Endress+Hauser, according to the company’s December Newsletter.

Kiem switched to a part-time program at Petersham TAFE, which allowed him to apply his theoretical training to practical applications through the company’s internal apprenticeship program, the Newsletter said.

“The more I’ve learnt at E+H the more I’ve come to recognise how much there is to know about the industry. I’m really looking forward to the challenges of full employment at E+H next year and the opportunity to learn more about the industrial communication protocols like Profibus and Foundation Fieldbus, which is another area of specialised knowledge altogether,” Keim said.

Endress+Hauser’s service manager, Oliver Cechini, who has been working closely with Kiem, said: “Matt has proven himself to be a fast learner and a valuable asset to our service team. Now that he has successfully applied for an early completion to his apprenticeship program, he will become a fully fledged member of our service team, under the supervision of our more experienced technicians”.

The program is aimed at resolving the critical shortage of skilled technicians in the instrumentation sector. Over the last six years, Endress+Hauser has taken a proactive role in addressing the growing shortage problem, the Newsletter said.
