Background to the reorganization (2012)

The new training regulation for process mechanics for plastic and rubber technology came into force on August 1st, 2012.
The most eye-catching feature is the new structure of the vocational training. It reflects the changes in the world of work in the industry. Instead of the previous breakdown into focus areas, there is a more pronounced differentiation into the following seven disciplines:
Molded parts
Semi-finished products
Multilayer rubber parts
Compound and masterbatch production
Components
Fiber composite technology
Plastic windows
Unlike the focus areas, the subject areas are part of the job title. They are shown separately in the classification of occupations and thus also recorded statistically.
In connection with the new structure, there was a redefinition of common and specific content, a change in the time structure of the training and the introduction of a new form of examination.
The vocational training is divided into common training content and - over a period of 52 weeks - training in one of the subject areas. The common training content shows the following major changes compared to the training ordinance from 2006:
Skills, knowledge and abilities with regard to dealing with polymers are given greater importance in terms of content and time.
Training content for production planning and control is already to be conveyed in the first training section - beginning before Part 1 of the final examination. As a result, the training can be better adapted to operational processes right from the start.
The mechanical processing of polymer materials as well as the production of components and assemblies is traced back in the joint qualifications in terms of content and time to the degree necessary for all disciplines; Above and beyond this, skills, knowledge and abilities are to be imparted, especially in the fields of components, fiber composite technology and plastic windows.
The extended final examination will be introduced with the reorganization. It consists of the two parts 1 and 2, which differ in time, with part 1 taking place at the end of the second year of training.
Part 1 of the final examination is designed uniformly for all disciplines, part 2 is subject-specific. For all disciplines, part 1 of the final examination is weighted with 25 percent and part 2 of the final examination with 75 percent when determining the overall result. The content of the first 18 months of training is relevant to the examination for Part 1.
