DMG receives Staff Development Innovation Award 2004 ​​​​​​​

Bielefeld. DMG Trainings-Akademie GmbH, a GILDEMEISTER group company, has been awarded the Staff Development Innovation Award 2004 by the German state North Rhine-Westphalia. The Federal Institute for Vocational Training (Bundesinstitut für Berufsbildung) honours training initiatives for an innovative approach in vocational training.

Harald Schartau, North Rhine-Westphalia's Minister for Economic Affairs and Employment, has presented this year's innovation award to Peter Bole, manager of the DMG Trainings-Akademie. A total of 101 ideas were submitted to the competition, five of which were honoured by the jury as being especially innovative and future-orientated. The DMG Trainings-Akademie stands out because of its CNC training initiative for unemployed skilled workers in the CNC field. The object of this project is to find employment for skilled workers who have been specifically trained to work with modern CNC turning and milling machines. With the aid of market analyses, the DMG Trainings-Akademie attempts to find companies in the mechanical engineering industry, who invest in high-tech machines and therefore in the skilled manpower required. Thanks to its decentralised training centres, the DMG Trainings-Akademie is able to carry out its training on a large scale and across all areas. In a 4 to 6 months' training course, participants learn the complex programming and operation of various CNC controls and their application. Already, 20 of 28 participants who have so far completed their course of training were taken on.
