Two trainees at LIS Logistische Informationssysteme AG (LIS) passed their final examinations with the grade “very good”. They are thus among the best graduates from the Münsterland region and the northern Ruhr area. For this, the newly qualified IT specialists received special recognition from the North Westphalia Chamber of Industry and Commerce. LIS was also honoured for its successful training work and, despite the corona crisis, plans to start training in 2020 in August.
“Today’s trainees are tomorrow’s experts. First-class vocational training for our junior staff is therefore of central importance for us and the entire industry,” explains Christopher Essing, trainer at LIS Logistische Informationssysteme AG. At the Greven site, two trainees have passed their final examinations as IT specialists with top marks. The IHK Nord Westfalen awarded them their recognition for this. “We congratulate Céline Middendorf and Stefan Arnold on the excellent results. This is an award for them and our company at the same time”, says Essing.
By completing their vocational training, both junior employees have reached the first milestone of their dual studies at Münster University of Applied Sciences. In the coming months, the focus will be on their studies and working in the company. “We are pleased to be able to continue to accompany them in the future and to benefit from their progress during their work phases in the company,” explains Essing. He himself was one of the first dual students at LIS a few years ago and was also awarded a prize by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce in 2015. At the beginning of the year, he took over the position of trainer from his colleague Mirko Venker, who, as head of the software development department, remains in close contact with the trainees and is very pleased about the good grades of the young people.
In the meantime, however, the company is already focusing its attention on the upcoming start of training in August. “Despite the Corona crisis, we will continue to train as planned this year,” Essing emphasizes. A large number of the apprenticeship positions for 2020 have already been filled. However, LIS still has one training place to offer in the field of IT for application development (quality management department).
