Competence only comes from learning
Due to rapid market developments, both techniques and rules and regulations are changing rapidly.
Stay competent by paying attention to your continuous learning.
Learning from the experiences of others is the most effective way of learning
Our in-house and our public training sessions cover technical and management topics including Automotive SPICE®, Agile, Management, Engineering, Safety and Security, etc.
Change requires the competence to apply theory in practice
We strive to make our training sessions more practical than theoretical; we limit the number of participants to maximize learning and encourage participation.
In-house trainings offer many advantages
Financially, in-house trainings are worthwhile for 4 or 5 persons or more, at least if you consider the expenses for travel. However, the more important advantages are that the training content can be better adapted to the needs.
The training times and duration of the learning units can also be adjusted, for example to leave a little more room for individual discussion topics. Experience has shown that participants also exchange ideas more openly and work together to develop more concrete and appropriate solutions. We experience this frequently and it is also shown in the customer satisfaction.
Advantages of in-house trainings
- Adaptation of content and times according to requirements
- Open exchange of experience leads to concrete and tailored solutions
- Often cheaper for 5 persons or more

Agile leadership and successful outsourcing
We show you how to effectively coordinate tasks. Only with sufficient transparency can the work be actively controlled so that the chronic reaction to disturbances is reduced.
We focus on transparent and cooperative coordination of work processes and support independent and disciplined teamwork.
The methods and emphases vary between classic and agile project management, the management culture and the taxation of suppliers. The crucial factors are acceptance and effectiveness.
We illustrate the solutions with examples from OEM and Tier 1 projects, scalable to medium and large projects or programs, with national and global teams using methods that recognize and use cultural strengths.
Learn how to create a good development foundation with effective requirements management.
Learn to apply the new trends to efficiently organize real-time architectures.
Work with us to see how productive the development and qualification of software components can be organized.
Expect good solutions from us for integrating and qualifying your products.
Early and effective testing leads to timely error correction.
Deliver quality on time.
While the concepts for ensuring and demonstrating functional safety and cybersecurity are similar, the necessary technical activities are completely different.
Get to know the concepts and necessary methods and apply them to your environment.
Learn how to effectively design functional safety and cybersecurity proof, integrate the activities into the project work, and continuously collect evidence and visualize progress.
All training courses are offered ONLINE
Due to Corona, training and examinations are also offered ONLINE until at least the end of June 2021.
We make ONLINE trainings effective and use our experience with proven design tools. We structure the training day in 3 blocks of 90 minutes each plus homework of 2 hours. Each morning starts with an optional and relaxed 20 minute welcome session (see times in brackets). For trainings lasting several days we are happy to divide the days into 2 consecutive weeks.
In anticipation of the release for online training by Intacs, we will offer the course “intacs™ Certified Competent Assessor (Automotive SPICE® v3.1)” in future also as online training.

The training material for ONLINE seminars is provided as PDF with a special watermark for your own personal use and may not be passed on.
Some participants prefer the material in paper form. Therefore, the PDF files are sent out a few days before the seminar starts so that the participants can print the desired parts.
If requested in time, the printed material can be sent by mail.
Each participant who has participated fully and actively in the seminar will receive a certificate of attendance.
For assessor courses, participants can optionally take an ONLINE exam in the last session. The examination is conducted by VDA ONLINE. For the other participants, the course ends before the exam.

Which ASPICE® training is right for you?
Question: Do you want to have a basic understanding of Automotive SPICE®, discuss some concrete implementation examples and learn how managers can motivate the experts for Automotive SPICE®?
- Our two-day seminar “Introduction to Automotive SPICE® for Managers” is the perfect introduction.
- Alternatively, we offer to participate in the first three days of the “intacs™ Certified Provisional Assessor (Automotive SPICE®)“. This training is more detailed and more exercises are integrated. You will get a stronger insight into how assessors evaluate the implementation of practices, even if you do not want to participate fully in the assessor training.
Question: Do you want to become an Automotive SPICE® Assessor?
The training consists of several parts. Among other things, you need the following trainings and have to pass the corresponding exams (Note: Further criteria have to be fulfilled, details here):
- “intacs™ Certified Provisional Assessor (Automotive SPICE®)” is the introductory course. Once you have passed the exam, you may become a member of the assessment team, but you may not yet lead any assessments.
- For a deeper understanding of the dependencies within the model, you also need the course “Introduction to the VDA Automotive SPICE® Guidelines“.
- To conduct an assessment, you also need the course “intacs™ Certified Competent Assessor (Automotive SPICE®)“
Question: As an Automotive SPICE® Assessor, do you gain experience in assessment?
- As an assessor with us, you can become a member of the assessment team – provided the assessed organizational unit agrees. Register early or be placed on the list of interested persons: Automotive SPICE® Assessment Participation
