Laboratory Chemist (m/f/d)
Do you enjoy chemistry and are curious about nature’s secrets? Do you have a good grasp of mathematics and natural sciences and are skilled in experimenting? Then you might be interested in training to become a chemical laboratory assistant.
Chemical laboratory assistants will independently perform analyses and quality controls, syntheses and metrological tasks, while planning the process sequences which occur in laboratories, documenting the tasks and evaluating the work results. In their work they bear great responsibility and must observe in particular the rules and regulations concerning occupational health and safety, environmental protection and quality assurance. As a rule, they work in a team together with scientists and engineers.
A broad scientific education awaits you. During the last third of your training you will acquire special skills and knowledge in the field of pectin and food analysis which will enable you to work in various fields on a team and a project basis.
The two-year basic training includes, amongst others, analytical chemistry, the performance of procedural tasks as well as the application and taking samples of the manufactured products. Once you have passed your interim examination your training will primarily be company-related.
Duration of training
3 or 3 1/2 years
You must have passed your A-levels or must have a good general secondary school qualification. You must have a good working knowledge of chemistry, mathematics and physics and good computer skills. In addition you should be reliable and motivated, keen to learn, and should be able to work in a team and communicate well with others.
