At the end of 2018, four CERN technical apprentices were awarded their certificat fédéral de capacité (CFC). After four years of training at CERN, two physics laboratory technicians, Lucile Pinard and Deborah Sala, and two electronics technicians, Yann Kandasamy and Vincent Peer, have left the Laboratory.
Lucile Pinard was also awarded the Union industrielle genevoise (UIG) prize for her excellent academic results. The certificates were presented on 4 December at the Office de promotion des industries et des technologies (OPI) in the presence of Pierre Maudet, Geneva state councillor in charge of the department of security and the economy.
This year, the apprentices were hosted by the TE-ABT, TE-MPE, TE-VSC, EN-MME, TE-MSC, TE-EPC, BE-RF, BE-BI, PH-DT and HSE-RP groups at CERN, as well as the Hôpitaux universitaires de Genève (HUG) and the Haute école du paysage, d'ingénierie et d'architecture de Genève (HEPIA).
Thanks go to these groups and the apprentices’ supervisors who provided high-quality training to these young people.
