Questions and answers about starting as a young professional
Can I shorten my training time?
Yes. We are happy to offer you the opportunity to do so. There are two ways to shorten the training period: You have obtained A-level equivalent or an advanced technical college certificate and have applied for commercial training. Then the training period is then shortened to 2.5 years.
You achieve a good average grade during training and show a high level of commitment. At the request of nox NachtExpress, the final examination can then be put forward by six months.
Both variants can be combined if this represents an advantage for your development.
I’m about to finish my training / school. When should I apply to you?
Our application process for all training posts starts every year on October 1 for the following year.
Will I get to know different departments during my training?
Yes, this forms a very important part of your training.
