Please contact us by e-mail or phone. Lets talk about it!

Public courses:

Anyone can apply for our publicly announced courses. The courses are held between the middle of September and the beginning of December, and in the spring, from the beginning of March to the end of May. We will publish the dates, topics, participation fees and other information on our website in time. It is possible to apply online as well as by e-mail, fax or post.

External courses:

We also hold our courses at the premises of our customers, if they so wish. For outsourced training, we provide a unique price offer for the given course. Generally, if a company already has approx. There would be 6 applicants for one course, outsourced management is more expedient and economical.

The outsourced courses are based on the themes of the public courses, but since they are held only for one customer, it is possible to change the theme, to adapt it to local needs and used technologies. We are completely flexible in this matter. If requested, we are happy to suggest the most appropriate training based on your operational and production conditions and the goals you want to achieve.
Outsourced courses can also be ordered across national borders. We have held courses in Serbia, Macedonia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Romania, Ukraine, among others, mostly in English.

Examination and certification:

In our courses, we assess the adequacy of the level of theoretical knowledge achieved with tests. The quality of the implementation of the practical tasks is judged by the instructor. In our IPC courses, students take an online test according to the IPC regulations. We provide a written certificate for each successfully completed course. IPC certificates are internationally valid.

Courses in a foreign language:

There are more and more Ukrainian workers in our factories, mainly doing trained work. Therefore, for the time being, two of our courses for them are also available in Ukrainian. The screened/printed presentation and exam questions are also in Ukrainian. The instructor’s explanation is given in Hungarian, for which the customer must provide an interpreter.
