To all parents

In the first year of their apprenticeship, our apprentices receive their basic training at one of the state-of-the-art training centres in Kaprun or Ybbs on the Danube. During this time, they are put up in our directly affiliated apprentice residences where they are not only supervised, but also participate in a varied recreational programme. This helps them to make friends quickly and strengthens the APG team spirit. 

The apprentices attend vocational school in Amstetten or Hallein in blocks of ten weeks per year of their apprenticeship. During this time, the apprentices can live in a boarding school free of charge.

State-awarded company for apprenticeship

Several years ago, Austrian Power Grid AG was awarded the national emblem "State-awarded company for apprenticeship" by the Ministry of Economics for the high quality of its apprenticeship training. This award is only given to training companies that have made a special contribution to the Austrian economy through exceptional achievements in the training of apprentices. Only a few Austrian companies have received this award so far.


Kronen Zeitung: Popular apprenticeship company 2022/2023

Austrian Power Grid AG was awarded the "Popular Apprenticeship Company" seal of quality. The basis for this was a multi-method study by the Institute for Management and Economic Research among the 2,000 largest Austrian companies, for which vocational school teachers were surveyed, company evaluations by apprentices on platforms and in social media were evaluated, the reputation of the companies as apprenticeship companies was surveyed in the media and the companies were questioned about apprenticeship training.
