Why training is important

Added value through skills development

Lifelong learning – why training is important

Modern technologies and machines are your key to success – especially when your employees have mastered them! Modern technology alone does not keep your production running. Employees are the deciding factor, even in highly automated environments. The rapid introduction of new technologies results in a need for constant training and continuous skills development. Thanks to our expertise in both industry and education, we have a special understanding of your challenges. That is why we are a valuable partner for qualification projects in industry.

For your company, productivity means always being up to date in terms of technology. Another important factor is the continuous optimisation of your processes. And of course the right employees must also be available for the right tasks.

In times of digitalisation and rapidly changing work environments, your employees have to keep up with the constant technological changes. This requires lifelong learning and continuous skills development.

Find out how we can support you in increasing your productivity and competitiveness thanks to qualified and motivated personnel.

Five good reasons for training your employees

Finding/retaining the right people

Qualified employees are scarce almost everywhere in the world. If there is a shortage of qualified workers, this can not only impair productivity and competitiveness, but also slow down the entire operating procedure.

By training your employees, you can avoid these problems.

Lifelong learning

Continuous technological advances mean that jobs are becoming more and more complex. Most employees are required to do more than they originally learned during their training. That is why they must continuously develop their skills and acquire special knowledge that fits their current job description.

Well-trained employees are happier and more productive!

Achievement = recognition + motivation

The opportunity for vocational qualification is a sign of recognition for your employees. Qualified employees feel valued and are therefore more loyal to their employers. They make fewer errors and increase their performance.

Megatrends and new technologies

Megatrends such as the digital transformation bring people and technology even closer. People need to play a key role as problem-solvers, decision-makers and innovators in order to be prepared for these challenges.

Training pays off

Investing in machinery is never an issue – this is often the case with training courses. Nevertheless, both are justified. There are tools and KPIs that can measure the individual learning success and prove that the investment in training is worthwhile.

Driving force in technical training

When we introduced pneumatics as a new technology in the late 1950s, it was unknown to many in Germany. But it was already clear that this could revolutionise automated production. Shortly afterwards, we were asked to give a presentation on the topic ‘Introduction to pneumatics’ to the Association of German Engineers (VDI). This event was followed by three hours of questions, which showed us that the best technology would not be successful if people did not master it! Demand for courses was growing, and in 1970 our first training department was established. This area has continued to develop and will continue to do so in the future. We are proud to be able to offer you comprehensive training solutions for production and automation-related topics. Of course, we still hold basic seminars on pneumatics, but we also prepare you for the challenges of digital transformation.


In our training and qualification programmes, you benefit from our experience gained in our own industrial practice. These practical experiences give us a deeper understanding of your challenges compared to other seminar providers. Our trainers also have industry experience and educational expertise.


Our training concept is skills-based and therefore geared towards industrial requirements and job roles. More precisely, training results are clearly visible to all stakeholders; an inventory of skills ‘before and after’ makes the return on training investment more transparent. Practical training with industrial components is part of our programme and promotes the transfer of new skills to everyday working life.


No matter where you need our qualification offerings – simply contact us and we will find the best solution. Our training courses are adapted to local language and cultural conditions and thus enable the implementation of cross-company training projects at all your locations.


We are proud of our certification to ISO 29990:2010, the standard for quality management in educational institutions. The certification focuses on the learner, the learning outcomes, the learning service and the competence of the training provider. For this reason, you can trust us to develop your most important asset – the expertise of your employees.
