2 VOCATIONS IN 4 YEARS – A “high voltage” dual apprenticeship

Apprenticeship training at APG gives you a unique chance to become part of our successful team. Not only that, but you’ll be trained in two separate vocations in just four years: 


What We Offer

• a high-quality training programme in two vocations at once
• the chance to train in state-of-the-art training centres
• promising job prospects
• attractive advanced training options
• above-average pay during your training programme
• bonuses for special trade school achievements
• modern accommodation options

Year one

The first year consists of practical training at one of our state-of-the-art training centres in Ybbs-Persenbeug or Kaprun.

This gives you a sound practical base right from the second year onward.

Years two to four

You will spend the next three years working directly at one of our substations, in addition to a part-time training module at your original training centre in Ybbs-Persenbeug or Kaprun.

Once you’ve successfully passed the final apprenticeship examination, we offer you excellent career development possibilities and prospects for the future.

With the right know-how and skills, you will quickly find your place at our company as a skilled worker, master technician, or team or project leader.

Once I’ve applied, what happens next?
As soon as you’ve submitted your application, you will receive an email notification from us. We will carefully review your application documents (CV, cover letter, school certificates, etc.) to see whether your qualifications match the requirements for the apprenticeship position. After we’ve received all of your documents and determined that your qualifications meet our requirements, we will invite you to take an entrance exam. You will receive an email from us containing all relevant information.

How does the entrance exam work?

The entrance exam is usually held at the location at which you’ve applied. Before the test starts, we give you and your parents an introduction to apprenticeship training at APG. Then you’re all set to take the test!

The entrance exam consists of a theoretical part and a practical part. After you’ve completed both parts of the exam, we make a pre-selection and invite the best candidates to an approximately 30-minute interview. After the interviews, we announce our selection immediately.
