About us - Portrait
Since 1992, we have been offering training at our technical school to prepare for the federal professional examination "Caretaker". Other courses are offered in the areas of NIV-15, equipment testing, plant protection and much more! Since, for example, a caretaker with a federal certificate of proficiency usually has a supervisory function, we also place great emphasis on acquiring skills in personnel management during the training.
For the participants who have successfully attended the school's internal preparatory examinations, the Pass rate at the federal vocational examination (over the years 1992-2019) 95 - 100% .
These exceptional exam successes confirm the practical relevance of our training and the high quality of the instructors. You can find more information on our further training courses here.
