Implementation of FACT Centres

Setting up learning laboratories

FACT market analysis

Depending on your circumstances and ideas, we will work with you to develop a plan for designing complete learning labs or equipping existing labs with new learning equipment. The aim is to ensure that the layout, corporate design and concept of your learning laboratories reflect Festo’s high-quality learning environments. We provide you with professional advice and on-site support during the practical implementation of the plans.

Teacher training

FACT training the trainers

Once a FACT Centre has been furnished with learning equipment, we offer teachers and trainers concise training as standard to familiarise them with the new technology and use it correctly.

During this process, we not only focus on the transfer of technical knowledge, but also on transferring educational and instructional skills.

Marketing support

Marketing FACT Centres

If necessary, we can advise or support you in the development of training plans and marketing concepts.

When creating corporate brochures and promotional videos for your FACT Centre, we will work with you to find the best solutions. You will benefit from our in-depth marketing expertise throughout this process. In addition, you have the option of showcasing your FACT Centre on the Festo website using a written description and images.


The final step of setting up a FACT Centre is certification, the main component of which is an audit that guarantees compliance with the FACT standards of quality.
