Have you ever wondered how a company's website is programmed? Are you interested in how a network in a large company works? Would you like to learn how to work with servers and PCs in a professional setting? Or get to tackle interesting programming work? Here at V-ZUG Ltd, we provide training that will take your career into the future, with a focus on applications development and systems technology.

Applications development
As an applications developer, you will programme software for internal processes within our organisation. Requirements will be defined in response to which you will formulate and programme concepts. The software does of course need to be tested and improved. You will need to be able to adapt to new tasks quickly and have a heightened awareness of quality. Proper documentation is important and good knowledge of German and English would be an advantage.

  • You have an interest in computers as well as how technology interacts with the running of a business
  • You are an analytical thinker
  • You enjoy a challenge
  • You are able to work as part of a team


The 4-year training programme is divided into a basic training stage and an advanced training stage with a focus on either applications development or systems technology. You will have the opportunity to consolidate what you have learned in 6 different departments. Throughout your apprenticeship, you will attend compulsory vocational school classes 1–2 days a week. You may also work towards your vocational school diploma (Berufsmatura) in parallel to your apprenticeship, after consulting V-ZUG Ltd.

Development opportunities

Many opportunities for personal development will open up to you once you have completed your apprenticeship. If you obtain your vocational school diploma, you may be able to move on to a University of Applied Sciences. If you do not have a vocational school diploma, you can continue your training in a specific profession by pursuing a vocational diploma (FA) or an advanced vocational diploma (HFP), or by attending an advanced vocational school (HF).
