Rapid track – VR3 – for specially talented apprentices

According to the Federal Act on Vocational and Professional Education and Training, article 18, as well as the Ordinance on Vocational and Professional Education and Training, article 8, individual needs are taken into account to accomodate specially talented learners.

The EMF organizes « in-school » courses during the first three years followed by the « in-company » phase in the fourth year. The specially talented apprentices who have already undergone relevant training may skip the « in-company » professional phase and accomplish a shortened VET program.

In this case, the apprentice is subjected to the VR3 (3 years rapid track) and will take all his qualification exams after the third year of studies. His contract is reduced from 4 to 3 years.


Selection criteria

At the end of the second year and after the fifth semester, the candidate is required to obtain grade 5.0 in both vocational and FVB1 parts. He/she must clearly declare his/her commitment to continue studies at the UAS on completion of the apprenticeship.
