Apprenticeship FAQs

We currently offer training in the following professions:

  • Apprenticeship as an industrial clerk (male/female/diverse)
  • IT specialist for system integration (male/female/diverse)
  • Electronics engineer for automation technology (male/female/diverse)
  • Electrical system fitter (male/female/diverse)
  • Dual study program in electrical engineering and information technology
    Electronics engineer for automation technology (male/female/diverse)

The application phase begins approximately one year before the apprenticeship starts. So you should apply about 12 months before the start of your apprenticeship.

We welcome our new apprentices on 1 August each year.

A secondary school leaving certificate or Mittlere Reife school-leaving certificate is preferred for an apprenticeship as an electrical system fitter (male/female/diverse).

A Mittlere Reife school-leaving certificate is the minimum requirement for all other apprenticeships.
We are also happy to offer apprenticeships to candidates who have passed their Abitur or Fachabitur school-leaving examinations.

The dual study program requires an Abitur or Fachabitur (ideally of a technical nature).

IT specialists, industrial clerks and electrical system fitters study for 3 years.
The apprenticeship for electronics engineers in automation technology lasts for 3.5 years.

We send confirmation of receipt as soon as we receive your application. Out of all the applications we receive, we invite a selection of candidates to an afternoon event for applicants. This is your chance to join us for the afternoon to impress us.

We would like to get to know you in person at our afternoon events for applicants. We welcome you and introduce everyone before setting a group task. This is followed by a test involving general knowledge questions, and then you can tell us all about yourself in a one-on-one interview. The day concludes with a guided tour of our premises. The event usually lasts around 4 hours.

No. Our apprentices learn through their daily work and, depending on the apprenticeship, rotate around technical departments during their training. We have a total of 40 trainers and supervisors who provide a good mix of theory and practice. On-the-job training such as first aid courses and annual training in accident prevention regulations is provided through set courses for each topic.

They are very good as our long-term average recruitment rate is currently over 85%.

In principle, further training opportunities are available for all professions. In terms of technical professions, we offer training courses for the roles of supervisor and/or engineer. In the commercial division, you have the option of training as an industrial clerk and/or a business administrator.
