Do you enjoy drawing? Do you like working with professional software? Then why not turn your hobby into a job?! As a draughtsman, you get to compile drawings and construction documents for industrial facilities and plant components. This primarily involves you working on a computer with CAD programs. Besides putting together the technical drawings, you also do the necessary calculations – working out what and how many materials are needed, compiling the relevant lists and drawing up the measurements. As a draughtsman, you spend a certain amount of your time at the construction sites to measure the facilities and plant parts as well as to make sketches.
You get to learn a wide range of tasks over your 3-year apprenticeship. Both your vocational college and your employer teach you all about the relevant technical rules and regulations so you get to see the theory being put into practice. Besides learning the theory at the college, you also get to take part in practical training courses, such as a TD course, to hone your skills in this area. You can expect to be able to work with a number of CAD programs on your own before your apprenticeship is over.
You either have a 'Mittlere Reife' [school leaving certificate (age 16)] or a ('Fach)Abitur' [high school leaving certificate (age 18)]. You have a fundamental understanding of technology and strong spatial awareness. You should be both good at and interested in Maths, Physics and Chemistry. It is certainly an advantage for the work you have to carry out on the computer if you already have experience of data processing.
There is a whole range of options open to you once you have successfully completed your apprenticeship. There is a very good chance that you will be taken on by our family-run company as a skilled worker. What's more, there are plenty of opportunities for you to take part in special further training courses to grow and enhance your knowledge and skills. One option is to qualify to become a certified technician specialising in structural engineering. Or you can study a related course at university (part-time parallel to your job). There is also the possibility to take on positions with more responsibility at the company, for example in the area of project management.
I've always known REMONDIS as one of the leading recycling companies in Germany. The whole subject of recycling is one that is close to my heart and one that has come up again and again at SCHLÜSSLER Feuerungsbau as it is part of the REMONDIS Group. We plan the work to be carried out on waste-to-energy plants for example. During my apprenticeship, I have learned all about a number of CAD programs and have taken part in several different courses. I'm already able to work with them on my own. I particularly like creating 3D models of breeze blocks using special, parametric CAD software. People thinking of applying for this apprenticeship should have good spatial awareness, be motivated and be prepared to work hard.
