ODIN Engineering sends apprentices around the world

On a trip abroad, you are challenged. You therefore quickly learn to think creatively, work independently and take responsibility for the tasks, say our apprentices, Jonas and Kevin. They have just returned from assembling custom machinery in China and Italy.

The employees at ODIN Engineering are creative, flexible and willing to adapt. In short, our employees can think for themselves. They have learned this through our many different projects that often place high demands on the individual’s skills and competences.

We would like to pass this experience on to our apprentices. Therefore, we offer them a stay abroad on a regular basis to develop their skills and knowledge. 

Abroad, you take responsibility and think for yourself

Kevin Bøgh Larsen, who is apprentice metalworker has just returned from a three week stay in Italy, where he took part in the installation of a large production plant. He has been abroad several times and has always acquired a lot of new knowledge:

”As an apprentice, you learn a lot by being abroad on you own. You’re not in the same safe environment as at home, and you’re forced to take responsibility and think for yourself”, says Kevin, continuing:

”In Italy we were going to renovate and install some older machines. However, the dismounting had been done somewhat harshly, which meant that it was difficult to predict what the task was. We had to be creative when we encountered problems and solve them as they arise.”

The installation work gives new knowledge

Jonas Gram, apprentice automation technician had long been looking forward to getting the opportunity to mount ODIN’s machines abroad:

”I’d heard that you learn a lot about our machines when we assemble them with the customers. So, off course, I said yes, when I got the chance to go to China,” says Jonas, continuing:

”In China I learned a lot of things beyond the routines we have at ODIN. When we install, it is about much more than our profession, and it gives us a good understanding that we can take home.”

The challenges make our apprentices more skilled and competent

Both Jonas and Kevin are happy that they have had the opportunity to go abroad. They will not hesitate to say yes to a trip abroad another time:

”When ODIN gives us the opportunity to go abroad, they invest in the development of our competences. I’ve a lot of respect for this, and at the same time I feel that it works. I’m getting better and more competent when I get challenged,” explains Kevin.

Jonas adds:

”At ODIN, there is generally a great focus on being able to work independently. We are allowed to think for ourselves, and this makes us better – especially when we are abroad.”
