Reconhecimento de qualificações profissionais para efeitos de transferência no mercado de trabalho europeu


In Germany, certificates of vocational education can typically be acquired within the dual educational system.


General contents of dual vocational education:

  • 1) occupational safety regulations
  • 2) planning and conducting business activities
  • 3) occupational foreign language skills
  • 4) personal and social competencies

The framework curriculum for electronics technicians specialising as technicians for energy and building technology promotes some general aims of vocational education:

The candidates should be able to…

  • work and communicate with people in a professional context both internal and external.
  • work and communicate with people with different cultural backgrounds in a professional context.
  • assist and serve customers.
  • analyse customer requirements.
  • mount and install electric systems, devices and components.
  • design energy and building technology systems, install, parameterise, programme and test single components in the field of energy and building technology.
  • apply technical codes and regulations, data sheets and descriptions, manuals and any other typical source of information both in German and English.
  • apply current information and communication systems in order to get valuable information, process orders, record and present working results.
  • compute typical electrical systems, devices and components with the help of a computer and calculate costs.
  • observe ergonomic, economic, ecologic and social aspects while planning and performing work tasks. They are to reduce negative effects on the environment by chosing the proper material, acting consciously and observing rules and regulations.
  • install  and configure components of hardware and software
  • secure unobstructed operation of systems by meeting regulations concerning the installation, testing and maintenance.
  • develop reasonable procedures for the commissioning, for the testing of protective measurements, for troubleshooting and for repair.
  • derive implications from troubleshooting which can be used for repair.


The specific learning outcomes for electronics technicians specialising for energy and building technology can be found in the examination regulations which describe exactly which competencies the candidate has to prove. The regulations also define the content of the exams (part 1 and 2) which have to be passed by the candidate:


Electronics technician – specialising in energy and building technology


Part 1 (before the end of the second year of training)

The candidate has to demonstrate in producing a functional electric system part that he/she is able to:

  • analyse technical documents, determine technical parameters, plan and coordinate work processes and dispose tools and material
  • install, wire, connect and set plant components, comply with safety rules, accident prevention regulations and environmental requirements
  • assess of the safety of electrical systems and equipment and check electrical protections
  • analyse electrical systems, check their functions, identify and fix errors
  • put products into operation, hand over, explain and document the order execution
  • prepare technical documents including test reports


Part 2 (at the end of training):

In the four examination areas of part 2 the candidate has to demonstrate that he / she is able to:
