What are you learning?

In 3e grade Wood you will be trained to work independently and you will learn to use modern machines professionally and safely. The structures are getting bigger and more complex. CAD drawing and CNC machines are an important part of the training. In our workshop you learn to carry out all phases from 'assignment to realization': from planning, sketching, price calculation to measuring and making and finishing the product. Much attention also continues to be paid to observing safety regulations.

During you Internship you get an extensive chance of what you know and can apply in practice. You taste the real work situation in a woodworking company.
