Electronics Technician for Equipment and Systems
As an aspiring Electronics Engineer for Equipment and Systems, you will fit and remove electronic devices and modify these correctly. You will solder electronic components, working both with and without a microscope, and operate SMD automatic placement machines. During your apprenticeship, you will check PCBs and assemblies. You will also design PCBs and draft circuit diagrams. This will not only give you the opportunity to familiarize yourself with our products, but also to learn how the production workflows and manufacturing processes work.
You can find further information on the apprenticeship on the web pages of the Heilbronn-Franken Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
DURATION OF TRAINING / SCHEDULE
