Training & Studying

Take your chance

KOB has an excellent training model and has won the TOP JOB award multiple times. We offer the best conditions for your career to reach its full potential!

Our strategy of investing in highly competent new talent pays off in the long term – and not just for KOB as a company.

Our career starters – who arrive at KOB with a variety of prerequisites and ideas for the future – can use our training programmes to unlock promising prospects. So you don't necessarily have to be "fresh" out of school, but you can also apply if you've already started training or studying and realized that you'd rather do something else after all. 

What distinguishes the apprenticeship at KOB?

  • Award-winning training concept that promotes professional, personal, methodical and social skills
  • Individual support, both professional and personal
  • Mentoring system
  • Into-the-job programme with an introductory week and experiential education days as well as numerous workshops and training courses for interdisciplinary competence development, such as a one-week theatre workshop
  • Apprenticeship also possible on a part-time basis
  • The KOB community with nice instructors and fellow trainees!


We still have vacant apprenticeships for
technical-industrial professions, commercial professions and dual study programmes. Our application process continues even during Corona times.

Trainees: ‘We report on our training!’

Even before training begins, the new recruits join the KOB training team: through the trainee mentor scheme, every new KOB trainee has a point of contact as soon as they are accepted onto the programme, and they have an opportunity to get a taste of the company in advance. It’s our way of saying ‘Welcome!’

To make the first days at KOB a little easier, all new trainees take part in a one-week orientation seminar. They get to know their fellow trainees and the instructors in a somewhat different atmosphere outside of the company.

KOB thinks it’s important to learn in different environments. You can find out more on this page.

‘When it comes to implementing process-oriented training models, KOB is a pioneer: its methodological, science-based training model, which was developed in collaboration with the University of Kaiserslautern, has proven to be useful and effective for the company and will now be implemented throughout Germany.’
