As part of the global alliance WorldSkills International, one of the central tasks of WorldSkills Germany is to hold national professional competitions and to provide the best possible training for the winners for the “World Championships of Professions”. With this in mind, there are 20 state and federal performance centers for the different professional fields throughout Germany. The new center in Wiesloch-Walldorf is the only one in Germany for the field of print media technology. With its extensive machinery, the Print Media Center offers the best training opportunities for ambitious young printers up to the cut-off age of 22. The national championships for the profession of print media technologist with eight competitors traditionally take place at Heidelberg, the next one is in October. This year for the first time the German championships for digital and print media designers will also take place in Wiesloch-Walldorf.
