Countryside & Technology

Would you like to learn a second profession, in addition to that of a skilled agricultural worker? Thanks to the well-rounded training provided at an agricultural college (such as LFS Otterbach, Burgkirchen), we can offer the opportunity to learn the profession of "Metalworking Technician in Machine Engineering" over a shorter period.

In the third year of your college course, you will have already attended the first year's classes of vocational college, so you can start our apprenticeship in the second year – with the first year credited.
