Master craftsman's examination: Exemption from parts of the examination
Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)
In the case of a master craftsman's examination or a craft-like trade, you are exempt from taking individual parts of the master craftsman's examination if you have successfully passed an examination comparable to the respective part of the master craftsman's examination before a public or state-recognised educational institution or before a state examination board.
You are exempt from taking Parts III and IV if you have passed the master craftsman's examination in another craft subject to or unlicensed approval or in a craft-like trade.
If you have successfully passed other German state or state-recognised examinations, you will be exempted from individual parts of the master craftsman's examination upon request if at least the same requirements are placed on these examinations as in the master craftsman's examination. Foreign diplomas are equivalent to the final examination at a German university in accordance with § 7 (2) sentence 4 HwO. On request, the Master Craftsman's Examination Board decides on exemptions on the basis of other foreign educational qualifications.
The recognition of each individual part of the examination will be confirmed to you with a transcript by the examination board.
