Lufthansa Technik is introducing a new category for its apprenticeship scheme – electronics technician for devices and systems. It will offer 12 such vacancies for the 2016 training year in Hamburg, Germany.
“While traditional avionic technicians are primarily deployed directly in aircraft maintenance and overhaul operations, the new profession is more geared toward the requirements of specialized workshops for maintaining the highest quality systems and components,” said Barbara Koerner, head of central training management at Lufthansa Technik.
“This profession is especially well suited to young people who enjoy working independently on complex tasks in addition to having a strong interest in mathematics and physics. Patience and a willingness to engage intensively with new topics are likewise important foundations, as well as team spirit,” said Joerg Niebuhr, shop manager, avionics for radar systems, Lufthansa Technik. His responsibilities also include maintenance of weather radar, the enhanced ground proximity warning system and TCAS.
