We offer the next
apprenticeship place from summer 2023 onwards.
Draftsmen/women draw and
construct plans, sketches and models for building projects. They follow the
drafts of those skilled in the profession, e.g. architects, civil engineers or
interior designers. If necessary, they will first record and evaluate
parameters on-site. Based on this data, existing plans and technical drawings,
scale-based representations, and 3D views are created with the help of CAD
programs or hand drawings. In the planning process of construction projects,
mathematical calculations have to be made and natural science laws as well as
building regulations have to be taken into consideration.
Training lasts 4 years.
