Apprenticeship in Surveying Technology

You're interested in an apprenticeship that could take you all over Austria? Even into the high mountains and to rivers, dams and reservoirs?

With an apprenticeship in Surveying Technology, you're up close and personal with our country's energy supply. In the areas surrounding our power plant facilities, you will carry out various kinds of complicated measurements. Movements of the structures and changes in the riverbeds are recorded, evaluated and graphically portrayed as part of surveying technology. To do this, we use surveying instruments such as a tachymeter, surveyor's level and echo sounder. Care, maintenance and calibration of the respective tools are also some of your responsibilities.

VERBUND apprentice in Lab Technology

Dual apprenticeship in Lab Technology (Chemistry) and Chemical Engineering

With this dual apprenticeship you will learn two professions at once within four years.

Your entrance into the working world will start like this: You work in a modernly equipped test laboratory which specialises in monitoring and maintaining high voltage technology facilities. Here you will learn chemical-physical analysis and will learn to interpret measurement results and to derive solutions from them.

In Lab Technology (Chemistry) we will train you to examine the chemical and physical properties of various materials with modern analytical instruments. We do this partly with classic laboratory processes and partly with computerised devices and automated analysis systems.

In Chemical Engineering you will learn to understand chemical processes in industrial plants, to monitor them and to take appropriate measures for safe operation. You will take samples for monitoring intermediate and final products and pass them on to company chemical laboratories for evaluation. You will carry out simple chemical or physicochemical analyses and calculations yourself.

Zur Job-Benachrichtigung

You want to learn two apprenticeship professions at one go?

At VERBUND, that's possible. Every year we train apprentices in a variety of professions. You will complete the practical training at one of our apprenticeship workshops, either in Ybbs-Persenbeug, in Kaprun or in Toeging am Inn, Germany.

You'll garner work experience for the apprenticeship at one of our power plants.
At the apprenticeship workshop, you will receive your additional module training. Your times at the apprenticeship workshop and at the power plant are kept in balance, so that you can learn both theory and practice.

Which vocational school you will attend depends on your training location.
In Austria you would attend the vocational school in Amstetten, Salzburg or Stockerau; in Germany the one in Altötting.
