My first CNC operator course

This is my first post here.

I am Croatian and I don't have any experience with CNC until now. I was interested in it and now I have opportunity to start a course and learn to be machine operator.

The course is 3 months long with 90 hours of practical work. We will work on mill HAAS VF2SS and lathe HAAS ST20.

Since we have very bad economic situation here, I have a plan to move to Germany and look for work. I thought this course would increase my chances to get a good job.

I speak German and English, so that wouldn't be a problem. I believe I can do the course well and I am ready to work very hard. The course is very expensive for our standard and I am trying to get every information I can before I sign up.

The reason I wrote this post is I wanted to ask you:

Do you think this course is long enough to actually learn enough to work independently? If performed well, off course.

Do you know if those 2 machines are common in production in Germany?

Is it hard to adjust to different machines later?

Thanks in advance for your answers.
