Duration of training: 3.5 years
Metal workers are surrounded by metals and machinery. Tasks range from working and shaping metals into components and semi-finished and finished products to designing and fabricating machinery, assembling automated production facilities and assembling equipment. Metal workers use hand-held tools and computer-controlled facilities to work a variety of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and other materials, producing machines, machine components, structural steel components and furnace shells. They use skills such as forging, welding, soldering, bending, filing, bonding and machining.
"The basic training I received in the workshop during my first year as an apprentice was a great start to my career. I spent a year learning the basics and was then able to help my colleagues in the manufacturing process. After I finish my apprenticeship, I look forward to gaining international experience on job sites."
