Qualification path

Level: Entry level

Level: Introduction

You can attend the trainings on this level without special prior knowledge in the respective subject area. You receive an introduction to the topic, then you have a good overview and you can specialise further after then and participate in training courses of the following levels. On the entry level we also offer Web-based training for self-study.

Level: Basics

Level: Fundamental

On this level we provide all the relevant basics to achieve a good technical understanding. This is not just the pure basics, but on this level we also offer less complex topics. They are dealt with in self-contained subjects and they serve as a basis for further qualification on the "Advanced" level.

Level: Advanced

Level: Advanced

If you already have good knowledge and experience in a subject area, our offer on an Advanced level is exactly what you need. To achieve the qualification for trainings on this level, you can attend courses from the Entry or Basics level in advance. Here you can deepen your knowledge and expand your professional skills in key areas.

Level: Expert

For the step to the absolute expert in a subject area we recommend this highest qualification step.

Additionally, all the qualifications are always confirmed and certified by an acknowledged test organisation.
