Using capacities efficiently and flexibly

In everyday business life, it often happens that an employee spontaneously has free capacity. These idle times can now be used efficiently with the help of our online training, as the participant works through the training bit by bit.

This allows flexible integration into the daily work routine without any problems, which reduces the planning effort for managers to a minimum. Of course, it is also possible to complete the training in one day.

Individual learning at your own pace

In a training course, you will meet participants who already have experience with the subject matter as well as complete beginners. Doing justice to all participants is often a balancing act.

With our online training, participants can work through the learning material at their own pace and no longer have to adapt to the speed of other training participants. This means that content can be repeated as often as desired or worked on over several days.

Clever learning concept

No one is enthusiastic about dry, boring training. When we created our online training, we therefore made sure that it was as varied as possible.

Our speaker Wolfgang guides the participants through the training with a lot of humor and vivid examples. In addition, interactive diagrams, explanatory videos and quizzes are used to liven up the training.

Thanks to our final and lesson quizzes, it is also possible to guarantee that only participants who have understood the content of the training can take the on-site exam.

The time required to complete the online theory training depends primarily on the participant's prior knowledge and individual learning speed. On average, about 4 - 5 hours can be planned here. For the on-site training day, a time window of 2 hours can be planned, depending on the workload of the course.

Please note that you already book a fixed date and training location for the second part of the training when you register for our online training. On this day, you will take the theoretical and practical exam as well as the practical exercise. You should therefore plan enough time in advance to complete the online theory training.

One of the participants does not have his own e-mail address? No problem! It is possible to create several participants via a common e-mail address.
