Precision Mechanic (m-f-d)


PROFILE: Hard as steel!

Precision Mechanics are men of steel – still kind and sensitive. When I decided to apply for an apprenticeship at FOOKE, my skills matched the profile:

  • Interest in metalworking
  • Enthusiasm for precision
  • Technical understanding
  • Enjoy craft activities
  • Like working in a team
  • Good spatial perception


TASKS: High-precision!

I had no idea, how many parts an ENDURA® is built of. Today I know the answer – and I can even make some of them myself! That’s exactly what I do: As a precision mechanic, my job is to produce precise components. From the planning of the individual working steps, to the assembly of entire modules or a whole machine based on assembly drawings. But the coolest part is to build yourself the components on CNC machine tools – accurate to the micrometer!

My activities are diverse: e.g. machine bed welding, programming of CNC-controlled milling machines and component machining, turning, milling.

JOB: Quality craftsmanship!

The combination of manual tasks and modern technologies is what I like the most about the job as precision mechanic:

  • Programming CNC-controlled machine tools
  • Producing individual parts of steel and other metallic materials
  • Manufacturing plastic components
  • Turning, milling, drilling and grinding
  • Manual production of components and workpieces
  • Final function checks and optimizations


Do you want an interesting job? All we need is the basic school graduation with qualification (Hauptschulabschluss mit Qualifikation). After only 3,5 years of dual training at FOOKE and the professional school, you can proudly call yourself “Precision Mechanic”. You can even deepen the training in the field of mechanical engineering – and become a real specialist. After the apprenticeship continue your education to become mechanical engineering technician or mechanical engineering master.

Electronics Technician (m-f-d)


PROFILE: Powerful!

I’m always deeply relaxed when facing high tension. That’s why there was only this one profession for me: Electronics Technician in the field of automation technology. There were some basic requirements at the beginning – and pretty soon my dream job was within reach:

  • Interest in electronics, maths and physics
  • Open interaction with people
  • Enjoy technical works
  • Like drawing
  • Enjoy working on the PC


TASKS: Electrifying!

It’s fascinating! An electronics technician for automation technology is not a string-puller but a real specialist. Every day I emerge in a world of computer controlled automatic machining systems, machine tools and building technology installations.

Here at FOOKE I can contribute new ideas: starting with the first draft to the implementation. Electronics technicians build and optimize whole systems, machines and installations - from the first test run to the safe operation condition. Including error documentation, analysis procedure, and troubleshooting. Often in English.


JOB: Fascinating!

In these areas nobody can beat us, because this is what distinguishes electronic engineers:

  • Planning systems, installing, programming and testing
  • Analyzing functional correlations
  • Configuring sensors, electronical controls and machine components
  • Setup software, networks, bus systems and machine components
  • Troubleshooting and maintenance
  • Check electrical protection measures and safety equipment
  • Customer support including maintenance and repair of electronic devices



After only 3.5 years of dual vocational training at FOOKE, I could call myself an electronic technician – to a fair salary and other advantages.


Can’t wait for it? It would be great if you had an intermediate educational level (Fachhochschulreife). Are you in?

Industrial Clerk (m-f-d)


PROFILE: Allrounder!

Industrial clerks are beyond desk heroes. That’s why I choose this apprenticeship, where I can make a difference from my desk. These were the most important skills required:

  • Interest in numbers and trade
  • Enjoy working on the PC
  • Organizational talent
  • Enjoy teamwork
  • Passion for language


TASKS: Responsible!

No trace of boredom. As an apprentice to become an industrial clerk at FOOKE, I have turned in to a real allrounder. I got an unobstructed view of all tasks you need to deal with in an international company. In all areas: from commercial economic works to accounting, from purchase to sales and even marketing or human resources. I either perform the assignments or control the results.

JOB: Diversified!

As an industrial clerk you deal with something every day - and that’s what I love about it:

  • Contact with customers and suppliers
  • Compare product offerings
  • Compare product offerings
  • Purchase of raw materials
  • Operational scheduling
  • Negotiations of prices and delivery terms
  • Examination of products or services
  • Preparation of order papers for deliveries of goods


What’s good is that, due to the dual vocational training, the apprenticeship for industrial clerks can be reduced to two years.


You should have at least an advanced technical college certificate (Fachhochschulreife) – Then you can start of!
