The cons of taking part in the apprenticeship program


© 2020, Tomas

I found out about the apprenticeship program at VJDRMC only after coming to the labour exchange, where I was recommended to join VJDRMC. My decision to study in the form of apprenticeships was related with a strong aim to upgrade my qualification. I lacked the most basic knowledge of an electrician. I have signed an apprenticeship agreement with the company “Itališka kava”, where I was practicing and where I am working successfully so far. I am also grateful to the teachers working at the VJDRMC. Thanks to the them, I can proudly call myself a specialist. Even during the theory lessons, I used to bring coffee machines and, together with the teachers, studied the defects. I was taught by responsible professionals. Despite the fact that the work of an electrician is classified as a dangerous job, I did not hesitate in the choice of my profession, however, I encourage future profesionals to look at it responsibly and take education seriously. Therefore, I am satisfied with the decision to choose the apprenticeship learning form at the VJDRMC. The experience I have gained allows me to work safely and compete in a competitive market.
