Leon Thanner

“What I particularly liked about my apprenticeship as a refrigeration system technician was that I was able to gain a lot of different experiences and impressions, as I worked in a wide variety of departments. Since I finished my apprenticeship, I have been working in the laboratory, where I also spent the last months of my apprenticeship. Together with my colleagues, I am responsible for measuring and optimising cooling units as well as for the new and further development of cooling units in the laboratory. The most exciting thing for me is to master different tasks every day and still gain new experiences. If employees want to continue their education, for example to become a master craftsman, engineer or graduate engineer, they are generously supported by AHT.”
