In order to be fit in your job, it makes sense to attend a seminar or course every now and then after completing your training. Because if you are familiar with new developments, you will also enjoy your job. As a roller shutter and sun protection mechatronics technician, for example, you can deepen your knowledge of electrical and electronic control technology. A computer course can also help in everyday work.

More responsibility, more money

An important prerequisite for your professional advancement is the willingness to take on more responsibility - as a technician, master craftsman, technical specialist or business economist. Such advanced training usually lasts at least one year - with part-time courses it can also be four years - and ends with an official qualification that opens up new career opportunities: Technicians specializing in electrical engineering, for example, are required to work on machines, plants and systems to plan, develop and construct. Most of the time, you will also take on employee management tasks. And you acquire knowledge that will help you to become self-employed.

Financial reasons can also speak in favor of further training. As a master craftsman or technician, you usually earn more.

Part time or full time?

Many further training courses are also offered part-time: So you still work in your job and continue to train yourself on the side. Acquiring new knowledge in addition to the job is often a challenge, however. Anyone who opts for full-time training will of course not earn anything during that time.

Many advanced training courses can be subsidized by the state.
