The brand with the Four Rings has been training young people at the Ingolstadt location to become highly qualified specialists since 1949. A specially designed anniversary exhibition that includes a clear timeline guides one through historical highlights of the company’s training history. At the anniversary ceremony, trainees from various decades will provide an insight into their personal histories and experiences in a talk session. Dieter Omert, Head of Vocational Training and Technical Competence Development, and Dagmar Konrad, Head of the Audi Academy, will look back on how the range of training subjects has grown at the plant. Board of Management Member for Human Resources Wendelin Göbel, Chairman of the General Works Council Peter Mosch and guests of honor from the fields of business and politics in the region will also be present.
Anyone who would like to experience Audi’s working world interactively on this day can take part in special hands-on activities: Interested people can immerse themselves in virtual worlds with virtual-reality glasses, produce keyrings with 3D printers, explore the world of robotics or explore a mechatronics technician’s working environment in a 360-degree video. This short film will also be available online at www.audi.de/ausbildung starting today, Thursday.
The open day will take place between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Audi Training Center at Hindemithstraße 27 in Ingolstadt. Throughout the day, trainees and trainers from the company will provide advice on everything worth knowing about the innovative Audi professions.
