During the final months of your apprenticeship, you'll be placed in your specialist department. This is where you’ll consolidate your knowledge, work independently on projects and thoroughly prepare for your final oral exam. In most cases, the specialist department is the department in which our apprentices would like to work after completing their apprenticeship. But we’ll work together with you in choosing the specialist department that’s right for you.
