Why training is important
The working environment has changed considerably. Jobs for life are now almost unheard of and factors such as technological progress, globalization and demographic change have fundamentally altered the employment market. In many cases, the knowledge and training acquired through prior studies is no longer sufficient to adapt to these challenges. That’s why it is imperative to continuously expand your knowledge and keep learning. This makes you not just more qualified for the work that you do but also helps you progress further in your career and earnings.
Multidisciplinary qualifications are gaining importance
Multidisciplinary qualifications or so-called “soft skills”, such as initiative, the ability to work in a team and deal with conflict, are becoming crucially important. As opposed to “hard” expert knowledge acquired in vocational training or at university, employers increasingly demand “soft” skills. At the soft-skill seminars for engineers, you will learn the necessary leadership skills for managers or prospective managers. For specialists, extensive further training is available, specifically for engineers in the areas of law, management, business administration and self-organization.
