One great advantage of the vocational training system in Germany is its closeness to the employment market. The aim is to train qualified skilled workers who bring with them the necessary competences and qualifications for a changing world of employment. The high proportion of practical training ensures that the acquired skills are actually in demand in the world of work.

For many, vocational training pay plays an important role, because the thought of being financially independent of parents - at least partially - is appealing. However, the training or the completion of the training has further advantages: it serves as a direct stepping stone into professional life.

With regard to the training performance in the company's history, it is also important that MMM not only trains many young people in technical and commercial professions for their future careers. After graduation, they will often be taken over by MMM and contribute to the success of the company.
