IT specialists who specialize in application development are heading for a professional life without routine. Each day, each task is different. Again and again, new solution approaches have to be found. To tackle that they are confident handling different programming languages and databases, and have a deep understanding of operating systems.
As both the programming languages and operating systems in use constantly change, they must always be abreast the technical developments. That's the only way to be creative and conceive new ideas in a team. After all, qualified IT specialists are not lone wolves, but team players who discuss possible solutions with their colleagues before successfully implementing them.
The apprenticeship has a regular duration of three years. The theoretical training takes place in the ATIW ("Ausbildungszentrum für Technik, Informationsverarbeitung und Wirtschaft") in Paderborn. Additional training content is imparted in the form of seminars in cooperation with Siemens AG in Paderborn.
