Plastics process technician apprenticeship

Your training as a plastics process technician is very similar to that of a plastics technician. Nevertheless, it differs in its duration, which is only 3 years instead of 4, and in the depth of the training content. In addition to the production of our sustainable reusable solutions, the focus of a plastics process technician apprenticeship is also on the processing and shaping of plastics. After production, you will inspect the products and, if necessary, correct production errors.
