Roche trained Germany’s best Biology Laboratory Technician in 2015
In 2015, approximately 60 apprentices successfully completed their apprenticeships at Roche in Penzberg; amongst them was Lara-Kristin Steinmetz. She started her apprenticeship as a Biology Laboratory Technician in 2012. In the course of her three-year apprenticeship, she has had the opportunity to learn the content of her profession in many different areas of the pharmaceutical and diagnostics world. This included a nine-week assignment abroad at the Roche site in Basel in the areas Pharmaceutical Sciences. In July 2015, she took her final examination – with an outstanding result. Lara-Kristin Steinmetz achieved an average grade of 1.1 and was, therewith, the best in the Chamber and in Bavaria, for which she was already honored at an event aboard the MS Starnberg in autumn 2015. But that’s not all. In December 2015, she also received the award for “Germany’s Best Biology Laboratory Technician” from DIHK (Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce) President Dr. Eric Schweitzer and Carola Schaar, President of the IHK (Chamber of Industry and Commerce) Halle-Dessau, at the tenth national tribute to the best graduates of the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Berlin. The festive evening was hosted by entertainer Barbara Schöneberger and the Federal Minister of Justice Heiko Maas delivered a speech in honor of the top graduates. She was accompanied by her trainer Roland Krammer as well as her parents.
We are very pleased with her extraordinary performance and congratulate Lara-Kristin Steinmetz, her trainer and all of the training officers involved in this great success.
