News from the apprenticeship container and apparatus builders:

A new training regulation came into force for the apprenticeship of container and apparatus builders.

The new training regulations for container and apparatus builders replace the predecessor ordinance of 1989, which came into force on 01.08.2018. In an amending ordinance of the year 1998, only one change of name from „Coppersmith“ to „Container and apparatus builders“ was carried out. After more than 27 years, there was a need for modernization. On October 19, 2016 began the reorganization process. After only eight months, the text of the regulation on the legal review drafted by the social partners was ready. On January 2, 2018, the ordinance was published in the Federal Law Gazette.

The modernization of the training regulations was necessary in order to adapt the in-company training with regard to the content and technical developments of the professional practice. For the modernization changed work and business processes as well as new materials, machine systems and production techniques were the decisive factors. In addition, customer orientation, digitization, English language, teamwork and lifelong learning were included in the qualifications to be taught.

The previous examination structure of the classical intermediate examination and journeyman’s examination was replaced by the extended journeyman’s examination. The journeyman’s exam is divided into parts 1 and 2 with the examination areas:

  • Part 1: Pipeline construction and
  • Part 2: Tank construction, plant engineering, maintenance as well as economics and social studies.

The examination areas are weighted differently:

  • Pipeline construction with 25%,
  • Tank construction with 35%,
  • Plant technology with 15%,
  • Maintenance with 15% as well
  • Economic and Social Studies 10%.
