Apprenticeship at Kiefel

Know what to do when you leave school? An apprenticeship at Kiefel can open many doors for you. Because you learn not only about your desired profession; you can also apply your knowledge in different sectors. Above all, we attach great importance to you being able to put what you’ve learned into practice. This means that you also pitch in, taking responsibility for your tasks and contributing your ideas. Because we want you to be one of the best in your profession at the end of your apprenticeship!

The selection process for apprenticeships starting in September always begins in the spring of the year before (e.g. in spring 2019 for September 2020).

What you can expect from us

  • We do all we can to offer you the best conditions for a successful apprenticeship.
  • This includes giving you real tasks and responsibility from the outset.
  • In every apprenticeship, you are provided with insights into the whole company.

  • With the hybrid apprenticeship, you can follow two courses of training in parallel. See below for further information.
  • Maybe you combine theory and practice in the sandwich course – see below for further information again.
  • Our four divisions open up an array of possibilities for you – also beyond the apprenticeship.
  • It’s a labour of love for us to nurture young talents like you!

Apprenticeship trades

We offer apprenticeships in the following professions:

Apprenticeship as industrial technician

If you have a technical aptitude and an interest in machines, then this is the perfect place for you. In the industrial technician apprenticeship, you’ll learn the fundamental skills of metalworking, soldering, welding, milling, turning and drilling. Then from the small, you transfer to the large: Installing and commissioning complex machines and large systems will be no problem for you at the end of your apprenticeship. And you’ll be able to work so precisely that your manufacturing tolerances will be measured in thousandths of a millimetre.

Apprenticeship as electronics technician for automation technology

Everything begins with a solid grounding in basic mechanical and electronic principles. This is followed by control engineering, electrical and mechanical final assembly, commissioning and technical documentation. Ultimately, you’ll become a professional in assembling and testing measurement, control and regulation equipment. Handing over the finished system and instructing the future users round off your skill set perfectly.

Apprenticeship as technical product designer

Once you have a good command of the mechanical principles, you’ll learn 2D and 3D product design at the computer.
