Cerbios apprentice wins the Farma Industria Award as best student of the year.
The management of Cerbios-Pharma SA congratulates its two apprentices for successfully concluding their three-year study.
In particular, we are proud to congratulate Christian Losavio who has won the Farma Industria Ticino and Credit Suisse Award for the best student in the profession of biology laboratory technician.
“I am very proud of this great achievement of Christian”, confirms Gabriel Haering, CEO. “Also Marina had the same excellent results reaching second in the faculty and missing first place by only a few points. The fact that both will continue their studies is confirmation of their passion for what they have learned in our company. Perhaps they will come back in some years to reinforce our staff with new ideas and energy. I wish them all the best for their future”.
Cerbios-Pharma SA has long been investing in the training of young people and is recognized in southern Switzerland for the high theoretical quality and practical working ability of its apprentices.
In the past, the majority of apprentices trained by our company were hired at the end of their apprenticeship and continued on working with us. Today young people often decide to continue their studies.
The high degree of success reflects the great effort made by their instructors (trainers) who, on top of their daily work activities, put a lot of personal engagement into supporting their apprentices.
This year Cerbios-Pharma SA has nine apprentices in seven different departments on its staff.
