Training

Employees and their know-how are the key resource when it comes to the success of a company. To broaden employees’ existing expertise, it is important to support and train them.

With our targeted training programs, tailored specifically to your areas of interest, we make sure that your staff are well prepared for upcoming projects and to cope with growing technical requirements. We offer a wide range of options, from open seminars for several participants and closed training courses and workshops through private one-on-one training.

To impart our specialists’ practice-based expertise to participants, we draw on methods such as experience reports, best practices, and case studies. Our training courses are held by German and/or English-speaking instructors.

In our head office in Chemnitz, we can host seminars for up to 50 participants. On request, we will also be more than happy to provide all training in your offices.
