    Some courses take place several times a year as classroom training sessions. Others are only offered as in-house training.

You will be sent all required information on course arrangements in advance. Fees include digital course materials, and, if you come to our sites, lunch and refreshments during breaks.

    Most of our courses can also be booked as in-house training sessions. Our instructors will be happy to travel directly to your place of work and train your teams on site. We can also mix and match the content of in-house courses and take a particular situation affecting your projects into account.

    These conditions do not apply to VDA examination fees for Automotive SPICE® assessor training sessions or the Scaled Agile, Inc. fee for SAFe training.

    We strongly recommend that you have the appropriate ISO standards at hand for and during the exam, and of course during your further work.

    For legal reasons, we are unfortunately not authorized to provide you with a copy of ISO standards. Please ask your employer if you can obtain the respective standard there.
