Training at PILLER:

In order to understand the specific features of a metal-processing company, the future IT specialists spend the introductory phase together with all first-year trainees in the PILLER training center. After this, you’ll be able to roll up your sleeves directly in our IT department.


There, you will gain experience of the Infrastructure Services and Application Services specialist areas. You will learn about and deepen your understanding of aspects such as programming languages and databases, and you will be introduced to various IT systems, in particular our SAP software. Later, you’ll also be given the opportunity to work in the Purchasing or Sales departments to gain further business skills. The training program also prepares the trainees intensively for the interim and final examinations.


The final examination is divided into two parts. Part one of the examination takes place after 18 months and is counted as 40% of the overall assessment. The second part of the exam at the end of the training counts 60%. In addition to a written part, the examination involves a project thesis.
