From online courses to face-to-face classroom training
We offer three types of training: Free online courses cover the majority of our portfolio. They are available around the clock and can be done at your own speed. Virtual classroom courses also take place online, but on pre-defined dates. They are held in small groups, supported by a trainer, and consequently offer a high level of interaction. Our face-to-face classroom courses take place in one of our 165 training centers located worldwide. You can take a look at one of our training rooms .
It is also possible to hold private face-to-face courses on-site at your premises to accommodate any specific needs.
