Have you finished school and are looking for technical or commercial training options or an exciting study course? Or perhaps you are still at school and want an insight into the world of work? We will be with you every step of the way and will give you plenty of varied opportunities to shape your professional future.

LÄPPLE AUSBILDUNGS GmbH takes care of all trainees across the LÄPPLE Group – and has done for more than 80 years. This tradition dates back to 1930, when the LÄPPLE training workshop was founded as a department in its own right. By 1986, this had developed into a separate training company.

This means that we can give you the support you need as you start your career. You will be introduced to the exciting tasks in the various occupational areas step by step and will have the opportunity to participate in your own small projects within the training company. The training has a forward-looking focus and is carried out on a modern machine fleet, where you can experience processes and programs that are used in real operations. You will be integrated into productive areas of the company at an early stage.

Vocational training at LÄPPLE AUSBILDUNGS GmbH boasts an outstanding reputation. The pass rate and the retention rate after training are both nearly 100%.

We believe it is important that you choose your profession or study course with your goals in mind and with a long-term focus – in line with your interests, inclinations and aptitudes. Do you have any questions about your options? We will be happy to offer support and advice.


Have you finished school and are now ready to take the next step towards the world of work? Are you motivated and can you work independently? If so, then vocational training at LÄPPLE could be an exciting opportunity for you.

During this training, you will attend intensive theory lessons, learn the ropes on real orders under competitive conditions and boost your personal skills. In the process, you will pick up in-depth specialist expertise and will be ideally prepared to embark on a career in your chosen field.


  • Tool engineers
  • Machining engineers (in Heilbronn only)

Have we won you over? Then apply for one of our vocational training options. You can find detailed information about all options on the LÄPPLE AUSBILDUNGS GmbH page.


Do you want to combine theory and practice? If you want to combine studies with practical experience, we have two options for you.



In collaboration with the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW), we offer study courses where you alternate between theoretical and practical phases. During these phases, you will either be in-house with us or at the university and will therefore have the opportunity to put the theory that you have learned into practice.

Have you successfully completed your university entrance exam and do you enjoy Maths, Physics, German and English? Can you work independently and do you have a sound technical understanding and team spirit? Then take a look at our current vacancies for dual study courses. We look forward to hearing from you!


Do you want something more than an apprenticeship or a theoretical degree? Then a cooperative study course is perhaps an alternative to a dual programme. With a cooperative study course, you do a condensed apprenticeship to start with, followed by a study course at the Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences. At the end, you’ll walk away with a qualification recognised across Germany, as well as an academic one.

Do you have a sound technical understanding and team spirit and enjoy working independently? If you have successfully completed your university entrance exam and enjoy Maths, Physics, German and English, then we will certainly be able to find the ideal study route for you.

Take a look now and secure your place! You can find all dual and cooperative study course places on the LÄPPLE AUSBILDUNGS GmbH page.


Are you interested in engineering and want to learn more about working with metal? Or are you more interested in the organisational activities in the office? If you apply for a work experience placement with us, you can gather varied experience in different areas and make your first contacts in the world of work.



We start our selection process and get our initial formal offers out early so we recommend submitting your application as early as possible before the start of your preferred internship, training or studies.

You need to send your application to LÄPPLE AUSBILDUNGS GmbH – they are responsible for training across the entire LÄPPLE Group.
