Operators work in clean and dry environments and through automation, industrial work is no longer as heavy as it used to be. The tasks involve monitoring high-tech manufacturing processes in a control room environment, interpreting events that occur in processes and deciding on the right actions to ensure the process/production.

We welcome both female and male applicants with education and/or experience in industry or engineering.

Course structure

The practical elements often take place in small groups and your schedule can be changed at short notice. You who take the course need to be available for full-time, daytime studies.

You will receive more information about premises, schedule and structure on the first day of the course.

Working in clean and dry environments

In the emerging industry, working in clean and dry rooms is common to prevent products from becoming contaminated.
In the dry room, the humidity is very low. This means that if you have problems with eczema, for example, you may have to work in other areas of the production.

For more information about these parts, we refer to the industry who can answer your questions in more detail. Contact details for the industry can be found below.
