Training paths

Dual-curriculum apprenticeships

The company, vocational college and the association partners cooperate closely
Are you interested in high-tech products, computer technology and state-of-the-art machinery. Are you good with your hands and have an aptitude for precision and exact work?

As a machining mechanic, you will build precision parts made of metal through the use of cutting procedures like turning, milling or grinding. You will work independently using CNC-controlled tool machines and are an essential part of the manufacturing. Not only will you learn how to operate the machine hardware and software, but also the application of cutting-edge testing technology. You can look forward to a fascinating profession with many different aspects. Moreover, you will have the opportunity to complete qualifications in addition to the regular in-house training.

Apprenticeships to become a machining mechanic last 3.5 years. Among other things, the first year explains the theory of the working processes and mechanical cutting (filing, sawing, chiselling, drilling, milling, turning). These basic skills are then solidified in the practical part, especially manual and mechanical cutting.

The second year focuses on machine cutting (turning, milling, grinding). The syllabus also features the theoretical and practical basics of working with CNC technology.
Training then proceeds to the CNC machine in the third year, which also involves practical application of the basic theoretical CNC skills. Among others, the final six months of the course is used to prepare for the final examinations and complete the practical coursework.
