Would you like to develop and expand your knowledge of computers, systems and software? Then vocational training as an IT specialist could be the right thing for you. During your training, you will learn how to work with IT systems, work on various IT projects and assist us in user support. In this way, you can build broad technical knowledge and at the same time get to know all business processes. You can specialize in one of two areas:

System Integration - You will primarily have a handle on hardware and you will learn to analyze customer requirements, then set up networks optimally i.e. set up computers, set up server access and install the necessary software.
