In the fall of 2008 the first apprentices started their training at the Møller Bil School. This year 71 students will receive their certificate. The best are offered permanent jobs at Møller Bil after passing the qualifying examination.
Today, the normal course for vocational training is two years of high school, VG1 and VG2. The final year, VG3, is completed at a company over a two-year period (apprenticeship).
What is the Møller Bil School?
An apprentice contract is normally for 24 months. During this time, the apprentice will combine the theory he or she learned during the two years of high school with practical knowledge in order to pass the qualifying examination and thereby become a tradesman. In our experience, most need to repeat and learn some of the information in the theory lectures. As a result, we have set up a teaching curriculum throughout the VG3 period (apprenticeship) that includes both class lectures and online courses. This allows apprentices at Møller Bil to get a thorough repetition of VG2 information combined with relevant theory for the specialization the apprentice has chosen.
Why choose us?
We are seeing that Møller Bil's systems and process are becoming so complex that we wanted to set up the apprenticeship program to take into consideration our procedures and values. In our program you are guaranteed to work with the newest technology and equipment that are used on maintenance and diagnosis for cars that are technological leaders in areas such as safety and the environment.
What is our main focus?
Our main focus is keeping the apprenticeship at Møller Bil is just that - a time when the focus is on learning in organized forms. Normally, most apprentices will receive an offer for a permanent position after finishing their apprenticeship and receiving their certification. Therefore, it is in our best interest that when you have finished your apprenticeship you have been given a good platform for learning and a good basis on which to develop as a tradesman at Norway's largest car chain.
