How long does an ausbildung take?

"Ausbildung" is a combination of training work in a company and classes at a vocational school ("Berufsschule"), usually one day per week. It usually takes three years, but this may differ in some cases.

Does it have tution?

In most cases, you earn some pocket money for the work done. Please note that this is not usually enough to survive on.

Which level of german language does it need?

Work and classes will be entirely in German, thus I'd think B2 level or better is required - but I don't know the formal requirements.

mahsahmd65 :

Can i change my visa and do an ausbildung?

You need to apply for a new visa.

Does it have age limitation? Because i am 30 years old.

As far as I know there are no age limitations.

Can i get a job after that easily?

This depends on the course you take - and whether the company that trains you is satisfied with your work and offers you a job.

Which fields there are for ausbildung?

Very many. Check https://www.ausbildung.de/berufe/glossar.

For acquisition of German citizenship, the same requirements would apply to you as to anyone else. In most cases, you'd have to stay in Germany (without needing government funding) for 7 or 8 years and show good language and integration skills before you can apply.
