Occupational German Courses

How can I improve my communication in the workplace?

If you would like to continue learning German after the integration course (or any other German course), you may be able to participate in and benefit from an occupational language course. These courses are known as "Deutsch für den Beruf" or "berufsbezogene Deutschsprachförderung". A work-related German course can provide you with the opportunity to gain a foothold in the German job market and improve your qualifications.

Important

If you would like to work as a doctor, pharmacist or therapist in Germany, but have obtained the relevant qualifications abroad, you have to pass a so-called specialist language exam ("Fachsprachprüfung"). It is only after succeeding this exam that you will be permitted to work as a doctor, pharmacist or therapist in Germany. To prepare for this exam, it is worth taking part in a specialist language course for physicians at the C1 level ("Deutschsprachkurs für Ärtze"). The staff member responsible for your case at the Jobcentre or the Federal Employment Agency can help you find such a course nearby.
