Do you ever realize how often you see print in your daily experience? It’s everywhere. Walk into a grocery store and every item has some sort of printed packaging. The box of cookies on the shelf or the poster in the window advertising a sale. Both printed and finished on machines that you could be working on.

Benefits and

Compensation.

Compensation: After every 12 months, Heidelberg offers salary increases based on the successful completion of the Fundamentals class.

About the Apprenticeship Program

Technical Training: The program begins with a comprehensive two month introduction at Heidelberg’ USA headquarters in Kennesaw, GA (outside of Atlanta). During this time, the apprentices will be introduced to the basics of every operating, electrical and mechanical function on a Heidelberg press. In addition, apprentices are acquainted with other equipment and a history of the company.

Work-Based Training: After the introductory course, the apprentices will return to their base region and work with an experienced journeyman Mentor for two to three years. Through this on-the-job training, the apprentices will gain valuable experience and develop skills in the field. Periodically, the apprentices will return to Kennesaw, GA for further testing in an effort to gauge their progress. After passing a Final Exam, the apprentices will be offered competitive pay, benefits and a chance to have a lifelong career with Heidelberg.

The Heidelberg Apprenticeship is fortifying our success as a service agency through education and mentorship of those who desire a career in print technology.

My favorite part when working out in the field is the smile I see on the customer’s face after installing a machine or trouble shooting and fixing an issue the customer encounters. Heidelberg is a great company I am proud to be a part of.
