|English translation:electrical [engineering] occupations|
I've seen it as both "electrical occupations" and "electrical engineering occupations" - I don't think it matters too much as it's just a very broad category rather than a specific trade. Two fairly official sources:
CEDEFOP publication on the German training system [pdf, 1st link below]
"The recognised training occupations are allocated to the following occupational fields:
· business and administration
· electrical engineering
· textiles engineering and clothing
· chemistry, physics and biology
· colouring, dyeing and interior design
· personal hygiene
· nutrition and domestic science
Each training occupation within the dual system is assigned to one of these occupational
Federal Institute of Vocational Education and Training:
I looked on http://www.bibb.de/en/ to see if there's an official English translation, and found one solitary reference "electrical occupations" in one recent press release: http://www.bibb.de/en/17314.htm
The section on new training regulations for the Elektroberufe hasn't been translated into English yet: http://www.bibb.de/en/846.htm so it looks as though the choice is yours :-)
