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.

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.
