Trainer: Professional aptitude Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Anyone who wants to hire / train trainees must prove their professional suitability.

The Vocational Education and Training Act distinguishes between the hiring of trainees and the training of trainees:

  • Trainees may only be hired by those who are personally suitable.
  • Apprentices may train those who are personally and professionally suitable.

Personal aptitude is lacking if there is a prohibition of employment against children and young people or if the Vocational Training Act or the provisions and provisions issued on the basis of this Act have been repeatedly or severely violated.

As a rule, it is technically suitable who

  • has successfully passed a final examination in a field of study corresponding to the training occupation, or
  • has a relevant university degree and relevant professional experience, or
  • the professional suitability has been revocably recognized and
  • has vocational and work pedagogical knowledge. These must be proven by means of a corresponding examination (trainer aptitude test).
