These are some of the first questions that students looking for apprenticeships ask when they discover ept GmbH. At ept we manufacture electrical connectors for all types of industrial applications and the automotive industry. The letters ept stand for ‘electronic precision technology.’
But what exactly are connectors?
Connectors are components used to connect and disconnect electrical wires
We use many different types of connectors when we go about our daily routines, from connectors for wall plugs, connectors both outside and inside computers, and connectors for circuit boards. The latter is our specialty at ept. These connectors are often subject to specifications and standards, and many are custom made for specific clients. Connectors can be found in complex electronic controls, gaming consoles, and even cars. Today, one in every four cars worldwide contains an ept connector.
Of course, these products have to fulfill strict standards before they can be used in such sensitive industries. To make sure that we are able to produce high-quality parts, ept needs competent staff who are both experienced in their jobs and passionate about what they do. ept is particularly enthusiastic about training these employees at the company itself. “We offer our apprentices the best possible head start to their careers,” says HR Manager Joachim Ruber. “We do our best to support them as they learn and gain new experiences.” The apprentices spend their very first weekend together with their instructors, getting to know one another and having fun before they start their daily work routines. Apprentices engage in challenging work at ept and are thoroughly rewarded for their efforts with paid vacations and Christmas bonuses, a company vehicle for apprentices, and creative projects as well as support and encouragement as they prepare for their examinations. Apprentices studying for examinations are provided with opportunities to study during working hours, and ept covers the cost of test preparation courses.
At ept, candidates can choose between eight different vocations, from toolmakers and industrial management assistants to surface coaters. Naturally, both boys and girls are equally capable of pursuing any of these vocations, as we like to demonstrate at ept’s annual Girls’ Day. And if you are looking for an additional challenge, you can pursue a dual study program and combine a university degree with your apprenticeship. ept’s programs provide you with the best opportunities to develop your skills and build a career at the company.
