Twelve trainees from the Heinsberg district were pleased with top grade of "very good". 

In Erkelenz, 1491 trainees have now passed their examination with the Aachen Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) – 125 of them with the top grades. This included twelve trainees from the district of Heinsberg.

It was now time for this next generation of young workers to enjoy a special ceremony at which they were congratulated by IHK President Gisela Kohl-Vogel. "We are delighted, together with each one of you, about your outstanding results," said Kohl-Vogel thanking all trainers, examiners and vocational school teachers. "Our globally respected dual training system would not be possible without your voluntary commitment."

Kohl-Vogel also made the graduates aware of the continuing education and training scholarship from the German foundation for the promotion of talent in VET [Stiftung Begabtenförderung berufliche Bildung, SBB]. Following their outstanding final examinations, they can receive support of up to €8,100 for specialist and cross-specialism continuing education and training.
