Electronics technician EFZ

Shape your future

Electronics technicians manufacture electronic devices or systems, carry out measuring and testing work, commissioning or maintenance work. As the global market leader in automated cable processing, we open up a fascinating world to you. With dedicated trainers and a good working atmosphere, we offer you the apprenticeship you are looking for.

As an electronics technician, you develop and implement electronic circuits and computer programs. You work in a team with other specialists. Processing orders and projects, monitoring manufacturing processes for electronic products, creating technical documents such as development reports - these are just some of your tasks.

Electronics technicians also manufacture electronic devices or systems, carry out measuring and testing work and are responsible for commissioning and maintenance.

The in-company training consists on the one hand of a basic training, which is broadly based, and on the other hand of an in-depth training in at least two fields of activity. The choice of the fields of activity depends on our possibilities and your inclinations and abilities.
