Intensive study week in St. Gallen

10.02.2022Bouygues Energies & Services

From 6 to 10 December 2021, 12 trainees from the electrical field were able to put their skills to the test. 11 of these trainees are completing their apprenticeship in St. Gallen, and one in Buchs.

Objective of the intensive study week

The objective of the QP test run was to gauge the knowledge level of each individual as well as their individual strengths and weaknesses with regard to the qualification procedure and to see which areas would require more work for the QP. To prepare the simulation as close to examination conditions as possible, attention was paid to time and independent working.


The trainees were motivated and gave their best. However, already in the middle of the week, it appeared that working under time pressure represented a challenge for some.

During this intensive study week, the following topics were covered:

  • Control system technology
  • Light switching
  • Measurement technology
  • Troubleshooting
  • Wiring exercises
  • Multimedia


Using their own equipment, such as for measuring or drawing up diagrams, the trainees were also able to solve problems in installations independently. A further condition was the link between practice and theory. In this context, once again, the necessity of theoretical knowledge for completing the practical portion of the test with good marks was made clear.


We achieved the majority of our goals and the performance was a complete success. Based on positive feedback from our trainees, we will also organise the intensive study week in future.


At this point, we would like to thank the Electrical Technical College of St. Gallen for allowing us to use their premises and the vocational instructors for their work.
