Your training will be split across several businesses in the region

Businesses in the Valbirse area pool their expertise in order to offer you first-rate, well-rounded training for your professional future as a polymechanic. The idea is to improve the apprenticeships on offer for a profession of strategic importance to the region.  The businesses running the training encourage apprentices to take the courses leading to a federal vocational baccalaureate in a technical subject “MPT”. This apprenticeship pathway is aimed at promoting excellence. And the value of a vocational baccalaureate is beyond dispute.
