As an electronics technician, it is your job to ensure all the electrical installations at our facilities work properly. This means servicing and repairing the technology at our existing facilities as well as planning new installations and any changes that need to be made to the plants. The planning process, however, not only involves procuring the equipment but also a whole range of other tasks - from setting up the circuits all the way through to selecting suitable safeguards. What's more, you install the different measuring and control systems (plus the hardware and software). Put in a nutshell, you are one of the main reasons why everything runs so smoothly.
You are given extensive practical training during this 3½ year apprenticeship to become an electronics technician. You play an active role in the business right from the very start and are given tasks in the areas of maintaining and monitoring facilities. You learn how to detect and assess malfunctions and to plan and implement measures to remedy them and, where possible, to prevent them happening again. Another key area of expertise is knowing how to read circuit diagrams – this is another skill that you are taught during your apprenticeship. This programme, of course, also takes a detailed look at the safety measures that need to be taken into account when working with electricity as these are essential to keep you and your colleagues safe.
If you are thinking of doing an apprenticeship to become an electronics technician, then you must have a 'Hauptschulabschluss' [school leaving certificate (age 16)] with very good grades in Maths and Physics. You should have a logical mind and be good at working with your hands. As you work as part of a team, it is certainly an advantage if you have a team spirit and are a communicative and reliable person. Electronics technicians regularly have to work high above the ground or in tight spaces and so it is important that you feel comfortable working in such environments.
There is a good chance that you will be taken on by our company once you have successfully completed your apprenticeship. Having gathered some experience in the job, you may also be able to take part in further training courses to become, for example, a trainer yourself.
My apprenticeship at XERVON Instandhaltung GmbH involved a whole variety of tasks and enabled me to get to see many different areas of the business. I particularly liked the measuring and control systems. People thinking of doing this job must have a sense of responsibility, be able to work as part of a team and think logically. I decided to do my apprenticeship at XERVON Instandhaltung GmbH because it's close to where I live and had many positive reviews. I enjoy working in a company that carries out maintenance work as it's always throwing up new challenges and there are always new things to learn. I would certainly recommend that people get some work experience, especially in a field that has to do with electronics, before applying to do an apprenticeship.
