Education & Training

Practice makes perfect – only trained and qualified employees are able to convert the introduction of an MES to a successful project.

By using our MES solution, the greatest possible increase in efficiency and productivity is to be achieved.

You ensure the success of your project in particular through well trained, qualified employees. For this purpose, we offer a variety of training models. These are planned individually, depending on the major occupation and previous knowledge of the attendees, and incorporate practical exercises on and with the system in order to offer the maximum benefit.

All trainings conducted by the iTAC Training Center are customer-tailored by practical experienced specialists to the needs and prior knowledge of companies and users.

Due to the current situation regarding COVID-19 we offer all our trainings for the protection of our customers and instructors as online trainings only. With this format you can participate live and interactively in our trainings from the comfort of your own home. 

Target group

All trainings are based on the modular system and consist of different qualification levels. The complexity enables newcomers as well as advanced learners to qualify themselves. iTAC’s training and coaching program has been developed for:

  • Users
  • Key Users
  • Administrators

Training models

From basic trainings to product and operational trainings, participants and interested people can change between the following models:

  • Company and group trainings
  • Individually customized trainings
  • Advanced trainings
  • Single trainings 

After successful completion of each training module, each participant receives a certificate of participation. Such a certificate is also necessary to attend the next training module.

Training location

The trainings can be carried out in our modern equipped workshop rooms with a next-door demonstration room in Montabaur, Germany, or directly at your location on site.

Terms of Participation & Fees

  • Minimum number of participants: 3

The organizer reserves the right to change the training personnel at short notice. The training course will only take place if the minimum number of participants (3 persons) are registered to attend.

Training Courses

The key lies in practice - mastering technology, means applying it in practice. This approach is also pursued for our MES solution. 

Our hands-on design training courses enable you to independently map manufacturing processes in the iTAC.MES.Suite. This enables you to apply the skills you have learned immediately to your installation of the iTAC.MES.Suite. 

For this purpose, we focus on an innovative approach to teaching the seminar content by independently mapping the manufacturing processes of an every-day product in the iTAC.MES.Suite.  An introductory session by the trainer will provide details and explanations of the available tools and practical tasks. During the training course, participants can ask a predefined number of questions to solve the tasks or benefit from the questions of other training participants. 

Our independent, practically designed Design Training courses guarantee you the greatest possible success in learning.
