Commercial Apprenticeship (M/F)

Commercial Apprenticeship (M/F)

Industrial products must not only be manufactured; they must also be sold. The manufacturing industry requires a wide range of materials, components, machinery and human resources. These need to be purchased, organized and administered.

On successful completion of their apprenticeship, trainees can pursue a career in nearly all areas of commercial activity. These include the planning and control of manufacturing, processing of customer orders, cost accounting, estimating, financial bookkeeping, invoicing and arrears management, sales, purchasing, logistics and shipping.

Depending on their particular responsibilities, the men and women who have successfully completed this apprenticeship will interface with customers, banks, representatives, regulatory authorities, wholesalers or retailers; in short, a profession with many opportunities and a variety of functions.
