Combination of theory and practice for best learning results

The industrial trainees receive intensive theoretical and practical knowledge transfer in Roth Industries' in-house, central training workshop. Roth also uses the digital learning platform ROOMS, which it developed itself. The system includes a media library with individual learning tasks, links to technical literature, table books, drawings and tutorials. Many tasks in the learning platform lead the trainees directly into practice.

The commercial trainees go through the commercial departments on the basis of a company training plan. There, the focus is on practical knowledge. This is rounded off with company lessons in which vocational school topics are worked through and intermediate and final exams are prepared. Within the framework of the in-house Star Programme for stays abroad, a stay at one of the international Roth locations is also possible. The employment rate at Roth after the apprenticeship is currently over 90 percent.
