Electrician for specified activities (m/f)

Target group

Professionals in industry working in manufacturing, servicing or customer service but who cannot demonstrate any electronics training. Further, skilled worker from a metal-working or metal processing occupation, for example an industrial mechanic, who must also work with electrical resources, facilities and machinery.

Seminar aims

After completing the occupational training, participants will be able to carry out set activities, specific to the operation they work in, independently. They will be able, therefore, to be deployed as trained electricians in the sense of the aAcident Prevention Regulations BGV A3 within their field of operation, acting in accordance with the regulations and recognising possible hazards.

Basic concept and lecturer profile

The participants receive learning materials which cover the contents. The participants use these in the preparation for the actual teaching hours. The theory is considered more deeply in the seminars using hands-on exercises with appropriate instructions. There is a special laboratory with modern equipment for the practical experiments. The lecturers and trainers used in this course are experienced engineers and technicians with relevant occupational experience and substantial teaching experience in this area.
