This is how apprenticeships work at Postbus

Apprentices create jewel on four wheels.

Since autumn last year, Postbus apprentices have been working under the expert guidance of their apprentice trainers on a historic Puch 500 vintage car built in 1971, screwing, welding, filling, painting and polishing. The cute oldie now shines in new splendour for a good cause.

In a first step, the vehicle was completely disassembled into its individual parts by the apprentices. The subsequent work processes and the refurbishment of the vehicle parts were divided among individual workshops according to a precisely devised plan. In spring, the apprentices then began to reassemble the restored parts in the Postbus workshop in Innsbruck. Today, the cute oldie shines in new splendour.

High level of training

The unique training programme clearly demonstrates how innovative apprenticeships can be. The apprentices, who are currently undergoing technical apprenticeship training at Postbus in the west of Austria, have been able to acquire in-depth expertise in recent months in relation to a complete vehicle disassembly with component repair, right up to the finished result in the form of a completely restored vehicle. The result is something to be proud of.
