How the apprenticeship is structured
You can complete your vocational training in four years. Designers are trained in the in-house training facility and attend vocational school for a maximum of two days a week. After the first two years, you will sit a 'partial exam' to complete your basic training. The second half of your training will consist of specialized training in your field of work.
Basic training (2 years):
- Four months external training (drawing / design technology)
- A nine-month 'workshop internship' in our own production facility (production technology).
- Drawing content
- Technical documentation
- Document management
- Analysis, planning
- Design recommendations
- Manufacturing technology
- Joining technology
- Assembly technology
Specialized training (2 years):
In this part of their training, apprentices deepen their knowledge and hone their skills by learning through example and working on productive jobs and projects.
The subjects include:
- General Education - Material and Manufacturing Technology - Mathematics
- Learning and Working Practices - Drawing and Machine Technology - Physics
- Technical English - Electrical and Control Engineering - IT
- PE and sports - Inter-professional projects
After four years of vocational training, the vocational school will assess the theoretical subjects through the qualification procedure.
