Service description

As a trainer, you must prove that you have the basic pedagogical, organizational and legal knowledge required for vocational training and that you are familiar with the important training methods.
In company training and further education, the suitability of a trainer is indispensable, and in many areas of the company it is an important additional qualification. It is part of numerous advanced training degrees.
You can prove this suitability in an examination. This exam consists of a written and a practical part.
In the written part of the exam you have to work on case-related tasks from all fields of activity. The written exam usually lasts three hours. A test set consists of about 70 tasks. This part of the exam usually takes place as a PC exam.
In the practical part of the exam, you have to work through a typical training situation in a role play or a presentation and then explain your approach in a technical discussion.
The exam is passed if each part of the exam is rated at least "sufficient". Within an examination procedure, a failed examination can be repeated twice. A passed part of the exam can be credited.
You should prepare well for the exam. There are numerous private providers who, for example, offer preparatory courses. However, this is not a legal requirement for registering for the exam. The exams take place on fixed dates.
