At its 2019 national awards ceremony, it was the 14th time that DIHK honored the best trainees in the IHK training occupations. Martin Niedermeier was the best trainee electronics technician for information and system technology, achieving the maximum score of 100 points. Now a Rohde & Schwarz employee, he was very pleased about winning the award. "I could hardly believe it at first. I feel very honored and see the award as an incentive to continue doing my best."

The fact that Rohde & Schwarz trainees have been among the best in Germany for many years can also be attributed to their solid and individual training. The young employees are integrated into the regular working routine of the company at a very early stage and assume responsibility. Klaus Kempe, Director of Vocational Training and Dual Studies at Rohde & Schwarz, praised the award winner: "The award is a good basis for Martin Niedermeier's future life and career. We are very proud of him and are delighted to have been able to offer him an attractive position at Rohde & Schwarz." Holger Schötz, Executive Vice President Human Resources, also congratulated the top trainee: "This is a great achievement and also a confirmation of our ongoing work. We give young people the best possible start to their careers by providing them with solid professional training. They can and should build on their training and continue to develop at Rohde & Schwarz. Because lifelong learning is essential."

Every year, more than 300,000 trainees take their final exams at a chamber of commerce and industry. This year's around 200 top trainees received their awards at a ceremony held in Berlin on December 9, 2019. The keynote speaker was Federal Education Minister Anja Karliczek. In addition to the award winners, their relatives and representatives of the training companies, high-ranking representatives from politics, business and the media were present at the ceremony.
