Apprenticeship

Your apprenticeship at cms electronics

We are an international, innovative and successful company based in the Austrian region of Carinthia. From the outset we have offered training for young people as investment in both our and their future.

 

Every year highly skilled workers complete apprenticeships at our firm. You will learn the most through practical work every day directly 'on the job', while theory and in-depth general knowledge are taught at technical college. You'll round off your apprenticeship by additionally attending various courses outside the company.

At our firm you can train as a mechatronics technician. This course includes the planning, manufacture, assembly, maintenance, troubleshooting and repair of electromechanical and electronic devices, assemblies and systems and lasts 3½ years.

No good at electronics and mechanics? No problem! We also offer commercial traineeships.

You want to do more for your future? We additionally offer the option of an apprenticeship combined with the higher school-leaving examination (Matura).
