As an apprentice, KTM offers you the opportunity to complete your apprenticeship with Matura. Apprentices can prepare for the Berufsmatura free of charge parallel to their apprenticeship training. The Berufsmatura consists of four partial examinations. Three of the partial examinations can be taken before the apprenticeship-leave exam, the fourth after the apprenticeship-leave exam and completion of the 19th year of age. The courses take place in Mattighofen during working hours directly at KTM. Detailed information on apprenticeship with Matura is provided by the training workshop during the annual information evening for existing apprentices and their parents.
