Do you want to realise your full potential? Do you have ambitious career goals? Perfect. In the metal construction industry you have many opportunities to always move your career forward, even after you have completed your training.

The metal construction industry is continuously advancing. You can complete preparatory and advanced training courses so that you will continue to remain on the ball. You can get information about them at the Handwerkskammer (Chamber of Crafts) and in your company.

Connect your technical know-how with business skills. This is your opportunity to rise to the management level and work as an interface between management and production.

Are you interested in organising and controlling production processes? Then training as a Technische:r Betriebswirt:in (Master Professional) is surely right for you. You will then be a technically adept specialist in metal construction and you will also have other convincing skills as a technical business manager. Your professional future will then be primarily in the area of management or administration.

The Meister (qualification to train apprentices) is one of the most important training qualifications. Why? As a Meister:in (professional qualified to train apprentices) you have the ability to train new apprentices. You can pass on your knowledge. You will also meet the necessary conditions to work independently in the metal construction industry – with your own company.
