Learning and working

Civil concrete works include large concrete structures such as bridges, viaducts, tunnels, wind farms, and locks. Few realize that these civil engineering masterpieces are crafted by skilled professionals. Behind every project are experts who construct these remarkable structures.

In this exciting sector, we are constantly seeking new employees, both skilled workers and supervisory staff.

With the shortened training programs from Civilion, you can become a skilled worker, foreman, or aspiring supervisor!

The shortened learning paths are suitable for candidates who have already completed MBO 3 or 4. Because you already have this prior education, you won't study subjects like mathematics and Dutch; instead, you'll focus solely on the knowledge needed in the practical field. In 1.5 years, you'll achieve your first sector diploma.


Your Workplace

Civilion ensures a workplace with one of the construction companies in your area. There, you'll be assigned a personal mentor to guide you in practice.

"I find the projects super exciting. You really see something come to life that you and your team have worked on, and it will still be there in 50 years!"

Bas (23), Dura Vermeer

"I already have a level 3 diploma in logistics but realized after my education that I prefer outdoor work. This program fits me very well, retraining in 1.5 years!"

Dirk-Jan Teeuw, Algemeen Directeur Gebr. De Koning

"Skilled professionals are the soul of our industry. Come work in civil engineering!"

What does your training look like?

The shortened concrete carpenter learning route takes 1.5 years. In this time, you'll come to the training institute in 's-Hertogenbosch six times. Each time, you'll undergo 3 days of training, covering both theory and practical lessons. If you want to continue, you can proceed with the advanced shortened learning route, which you'll complete in six months. If you're still enthusiastic afterward, you can take our courses that will make you a foreman/aspiring supervisor. If you don't live near 's-Hertogenbosch, no problem; we can arrange overnight stays in a nearby hotel during the training days. This way, you'll start each school day well-rested!
