Training concept

At Helsana, the largest Swiss health insurer, an exciting training programme involving a great deal of customer contact awaits you. During your apprenticeship you will gain an insight into different departments and organisational units on a rotational basis. Thus you will receive a step-by-step introduction to healthcare and the world of insurance.

The training is based upon the guidelines of the commercial basic training or the model training course for the selected industry area (discipline).

On-the-job training

On-the-job training takes place within the different organisational units at head office or in the regional locations. This training is supplemented by internal industry-specific training. To meet the increasing demands of the working world, you will complete between 20 and 45 additional training days throughout your apprenticeship period. These courses take place at head office in Dübendorf and – for apprentices specialising in private insurance – at the offices of our cooperation partner in the Zurich area.

Vocational training

As part of your vocational training you will attend vocational school (for E-profile apprentices, two days a week during the first and second years of your apprenticeship and one day a week during your third year). If you have very good high school grades, we offer you the opportunity to complete the training with a Federal Vocational Baccalaureate.

This will involve you attending vocational school on two days a week.

Industry training

As part of your industry training, you will take part in four intercompany courses. These are held regionally.


Orientation days

To enable you to find out more about the apprenticeship programme, Helsana as an apprenticeship training unit and the different areas of specialism available, we hold regional orientation days.

At the moment it is not possible to enroll.
