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

Our experts convey the theory comprehensibly, report on many practical examples and support you in the exercises. This is confirmed by our customers. Read 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.

Embedded Engineering

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.

Functional Safety (ISO 26262) & Cybersecurity (ISO 21434) in Automotive

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

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.
