Journeyman test stretched

Vocational training in the craft sector is completed by a journeyman examination, in which the professional capacity is determined.

As an alternative to the conventional method with

  • Intermediate examination during the training period and
  • Journeyman examination at the end of the training period

in some training occupations, the stretched form of examination with

  • Part 1 of the journeyman examination during the training period and
  • Part 2 of the journeyman examination at the end of the training period

Applied. The journeyman examination thus consists of two parts that fall apart in time. Part 1 cannot be challenged independently and cannot be repeated independently before the deposit of Part 2. The classic intermediate examination is no longer applicable to this type of examination.

If the training is discontinued after taking Part 1, the result of the examination may be recognised in the event of a resumption, provided that the examination rules remain unchanged.

A separate application/approval is required for both parts of the examination (see performance "Journeyman examination Part I: Admission").
