What is it like to be a trainee at HLM?

The trainee course at HLM is divided into 5 overall phases.

Phase 1 You will receive in-depth training and knowledge in the use of the instruments that form the framework for your daily work in the field.

Phase 2 You get a unique opportunity to take responsibility for your own tasks, and you have the opportunity to work on projects for customers. With guidance from surveyors and managers, you will be responsible for projects as well as communication with customers. At this phase, you will be able to improve your skills as a professional surveyor. 

Phase 3 Working in-depth and learning is the main focus at this phase. You will be able to create a solid base of skills towards thesis writing.

Phase 4 Dedicated to thesis writing. You get the opportunity to have a supervisor to assist you with experience and knowledge.

Phase 5 Will primarily focus on ending the trainee course and the further opportunities.

In this phase, emphasis will also be placed on introducing and training the new generation of trainees to the company and HLM's work ethic. Interviews are held throughout the course, so we ensure the best possible course for the individual.
