Providing intensive training and apprenticeship courses is the best way to tackle the skills shortage. Which is why BUCHEN’s own training activities have been an integral part of the company’s strategy for a long while now to ensure it continues to have the staff it needs in the future. This is particularly true for the company’s in-house FRKI apprenticeship that is currently celebrating its 10-year anniversary.
FRKI stands for ‘Fachkraft für Rohr-, Kanal- und Industrieservice’ [Specialist for pipe, sewer & industrial services], a relatively new apprenticeship course among those available in the environmental sector. BUCHEN is one of the pioneers when it comes to offering FRKI apprenticeships. Around 200 young people have learned this profession at the company so far. It has also won a number of awards in recognition of the quality of the course and the excellent exam results achieved by the apprentices.

There is much demand for pipe, sewer & industrial service experts and this will only increase. With this in mind, BUCHEN decided to once again extend its 2018 apprenticeship programme and offer the courses in other regions as well. At the same time, the structure of the apprenticeships has been altered so that the apprentices get to learn the practical side of the profession even more quickly. The company’s goal is to take on 40 new apprentices every year. The figure is already well over 30.
