What you learn at Teufelberger as an apprentice electrical technician
You will accompany your colleagues in their everyday work activities and, in doing so, be learning on the job how to troubleshoot equipment issues. There is also a practice panel for various exercises related to electrical systems, and, if you get those right, you’ll soon be given the opportunity to test your skills on actual production facilities – with the support of a colleague, of course.
Your help will also be needed in projects, e.g., when installing a distribution cabinet for a winder that is being upgraded to a new version. If you prove yourself, you will also be assigned your own projects.
Your specific tasks include:
- Step-by-step familiarization with our (switching) systems and production facilities
- Planning, assembly, installation, and maintenance of electrical and electronic equipment and systems
- Rectifying of faults and malfunctions in electrical and electronic systems
- Preparation of technical documentation and circuit diagrams
- Making changes to automated systems
- Close cooperation with our production staff
Industrial electrician at Teufelberger – more than an apprenticeship
Time and again, Teufelberger apprentices are also assigned special projects such as charity campaigns or climate projects. Upskilling days on which you will travel to other places with your fellow apprentices also add variety.
Frequently asked questions
Will I be involved in everyday operations right from the start?
Yes – but in an observational role. At the beginning, you will be accompanying colleagues. You will watch, ask questions, and learn to understand the fundamental processes. Working as an electrical technican requires a great deal of logical thinking, a high level of precision in your actions, and special technical training which you will get in the course of your basic training at Teufelberger and at partner companies. Depending on your skills and abilities, you will gradually be assigned your own tasks in our day-to-day operations.
How large is the team?
Our (currently) four electricians are part of the Maintenance Team which includes 20 persons altogether.
Will some of my colleagues be apprentices?
No, not in the team of electricians. We only train one apprentice electrician every three years. On the upside, by pursuing this approach, the team has more time for you and your training. However, in the course of various projects and apprentice training modules, you will also get the chance to interact with our other apprentices.
Who are my trainers?
We have one training manager for all locations. In the team of electricians, one trainer serves as your go-to person.
Which vocational school will I be attending?
You will attend a vocational school in Gmunden for 3 10-week blocks and 1 5-week block.
What will my working hours be like?
From 7.00 a.m. to 3.45 p.m., including a half-hour break. Every second Friday, your work day will end at 12:00 p.m. (noon).
