MPIA is proud to offer several apprenticeship programs. The precision mechanics workshop offers an apprenticeship program, and the MPIA administration regularly trains aspiring office clerks.
The precision mechanics apprenticeship lasts 3.5 years, the office clerk apprenticeship 3 years.
In Germany, apprenticeship is a joint course of professional training that combines a practical part and theoretical foundations. The practical part takes place in a company or institute, while basic theoretical training is provided by state-run schools ("Berufsschule").
A completed apprenticeship qualifies a person to work in their chosen profession.
Applicants for an apprenticeship at MPIA should be fluent in German. Further information can be found on our German webpages under Ausbildungsplätze.
