Interesting apprenticeships with career opportunities and a promising future are highly sought after. For companies, it is important that the selected student is right for the job.
To better assess applicants, many companies require students to take an aptitude test (Multicheck, Basic Check, Stellwerk or company tests).
These tests give companies the opportunity to compare candidates' performance, identify capabilities and "verify" school transcripts.
We offer prep courses specifically for these professional aptitude tests. In our courses, we review basic math and language skills as well as interview skills. These tests are not supposed to be affected by training, but experience shows that our courses help students achieve better test results.

Are you trying to decide on a career and looking for an apprenticeship?
Nearly all small and large firms require an aptitude test along with candidates’ application documents. The best known tests are the Basic Check and the Multicheck. There are other job-specific tests as well.
The Basic Check offers an objective basis for the assessment of skills and talents so that graduates can make an informed career choice. The evaluation is computer-based.

Preparation Multicheck® / Basic Check®
When companies look for apprenticeship candidates, they require applicants to take either the Multicheck or Basic Check.
These tests offer insights into academic and cognitive performance. The exam procedure enables companies to compare students’ potential independently of their school transcripts. This is why most companies require future apprentices to submit the results of these tests in addition to their grades.
Course Objectives for the Multicheck and Basic Check
We find that the two test methods differ considerably.
The Multicheck tests students’ ability to concentrate, networked thinking skills and intellectual (cognitive) abilities to assess overall potential. Questions must be answered under time pressure, which is a challenge for many candidates.
The Basic Check assesses the basic skills in math, German, French and English that students have learned at school. Attentive and hard-working students have an advantage on this test.
- Math: calculating percentages, proportions, units, volume, circumference
- French: conjugation in the présent and passé composé
- English: basic vocabulary and phrases
- German: tenses and idioms
- New: physics and chemistry
