Implementation of Training

The training is being carried out by German-trained Nigerian trainers in line with the special designed Curricula - both in theory and practice. The trainers were previously trained in a three weeklong Training of Trainers workshop by German short-term experts.

Duration of Training

The training lasts one year and is divided into three theoretical blocks of four weeks supported by practical training in the training companies.


Final examination is conducted by the German-Nigerian Examination Board. Each trainee receives a detailed certificate with detailed grades.

Benefits of Training

After a year the company gets well-trained staff - both trainer and trainees - who are familiar with basic and latest technology in the subject. The trainees are prepared in accordance with recognized and proven training methods in their professional lives. After training, the trainees will acquire extensive theoretical knowledge and practical skills for their future career.

The trainers and instructors receive extensive knowledge of training techniques and practical skills in the training.
