At our location in Schachen, we have been offering apprenticeships for Swiss federal certification as a chemistry laboratory technician (EFZ, Eidgenössisches Fähigkeitszeugnis) since 1977, and as a biology laboratory technician since 2010. At our Lucerne location in the Citybay office, we have been offering apprenticeships for Swiss federal certification in business administration (EFZ, Eidgenössisches Fähigkeitszeugnis) in the area of service & administration since 2014.
