Getting your career off to a good start.

As a TSS trainee

By providing training, we meet our social obligations as a company while also ensuring an exceptionally qualified succession. We offer training in a number of future-oriented professions. The diversity of our fleet (silo, curtainsiders and opencast-mining vehicles, vans, heavy-duty and roll-off containers) is reflected in the diversity of our training.

Our experienced and competent training manager, Heiko Meyer, ensures an optimal combination of practical learning and working – in accordance with individual development opportunities. He places a great deal of trust in the trainees and has them take on responsibility at an early stage, such as in trainee trucks.

The success of our training speaks for itself! The certificate of honour awarded by the state of Brandenburg in 2011 is one form of recognition for the high level of professional training. More importantly, many trainees have already laid a solid foundation with us a successful career start.
