Intermediate examination (vocational training)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In Germany , at least one intermediate examination in accordance with the training regulations must be carried out during training in some recognized training occupations to determine the level of training ( Section 48 of the Vocational Training Act ). For professions with three or three and a half years of training, the intermediate examination should take place before the end of the second year of training; for two-year professions before the end of the first year of training.

The intermediate examinations , like the final examinations or journeyman's examinations , are to be carried out by the responsible bodies, e.g. B. from the chambers of trade and chambers of commerce to organize. They are approved by the ('appointed') examination boards set up by the chambers.

The result of the intermediate examination is not included in the final grade.

Extended final or journeyman's examination

With the enactment of new training regulations both in craft (since 2002) and in industry (since 2003), a new development is emerging:

The intermediate examination is omitted, instead an early first part of the final or journeyman's examination takes place at the time of the previous intermediate examination, the result of which is included in the final grade between 20% and 40% depending on the profession. In technical terminology , this procedure is referred to as a “stretched final examination” or as a “final examination in two parts that fall apart from one another” . The basis is Section 44 of the Vocational Training Act.
