Technical apprenticeship

Your technical apprenticeship - IT systems engineering apprenticeship

After a "get-to-know-you" week, during which introductory events are held on the topics of sources of danger, safety, first aid and accident prevention, you will be familiarized with apprenticeship content during your training period.

In the first two apprenticeship years, training takes place in the training workshop equipped for this purpose. At the location Johann Hoffmann Platz 9, 1120 Vienna, a total of 24 training and technical rooms and a mechanical workshop are available. 

Mathematical basics and spatial representations of objects are repeated and consolidated. Getting to know the various tools and machines is one of the prerequisites for then dedicating yourself to the basics of mechatronics, electronics, digital and communications engineering and, furthermore, in the course of the apprenticeship, dealing in depth with IT technology with networks, special server services and further focal points. 

The last two years of your apprenticeship (3rd and 4th) are spent in your team in the specialist department. Here you can prove your acquired knowledge of the first two apprenticeship years and deepen and apply the job-related skills according to the job description and the requirements.

You will also be offered the following activities:

Company excursions (e.g. Technical Museum, Kapsch Museum, Kapsch etc.), Christmas and summer projects (where you can apply your knowledge to implementation), participation in information events at educational institutions.

Commercial apprenticeship

At Kapsch TrafficCom, as a commercial apprentice, you start your training directly in the relevant department after the "get-to-know-you week".The departments are changed every six months to give you an overview of which departments are necessary in a company, how tasks overlap and how important communication and teamwork are in the daily work routine. As an apprentice, you will find support from your colleagues, who are always there for you with support and advice. 

You will go through some of these departments during your commercial training: Procurement, Sales, Customers Support, Marketing, Finance, Controlling, Human Resources, Departement Assistent, Project Management etc. 

During the training period in the company, you will have to attend the particular professional school to deepen your theoretical and practical knowledge and take examinations according to the training period.

In addition, for all apprentices with excellent performance, there is the possibility to deepen professional knowledge and skills in a foreign language with an internship abroad.

After your three-year apprenticeship, you complete your final apprenticeship examination (LAP) and can be taken over by a department.

Various courses are offered in addition to the apprenticeship: 

First Aid Course, Social Competence, Reading Training, Intensive English Course, Telephone and Communication Training, etc.
