Trainings

We have decided to intensify our training activities. The focus is on the optimization of the infrastructure as well as the best possible location. Our business partners thankfully support this concept, now we are proud to say that from the year 2015 our lessons will take place in these locations:

Training center – Wegberg


In 2014 we have celebrated our 10 year anniversary, coupled with 30 years of professional experience for the preparation. For six years we have been working in the area of sample preparation and the joint training together with Micro Kern. Joint Projects like for example the thin cut technique will follow.

Lette Verein – Department Metallography and material-physical analysis


The “lette verein” will celebrate its 150th anniversary in the year 2016 as a job training center. The department metallography has been training  nationally sought technical assistants from metallography for 110 years. Tradition is combined with modern technology and current course content.

University of technology – Berlin - Field of polymer engineering / Polymer physics


Here we will carry out together with Micro Kern events surrounding microtome and microscopy. The students from the “lette verein” have also had excursions to the institute to learn about the area of processing and examination of plastic.

We also offer in-house training which has following benefits:

  • no lack of staff
  • no expenses for traveling
  • training with your equipment
  • there are no extra costs after the amount of payment is set
  • direct advice and problem-solving on site

Your workers receive extensive training tools and a certificate about the participation. All of the training content can be fitted to your individual needs. For Job experience on site we would require information about present equipment, materials and knowledge about the co-workers etc. 

We can offer you following trainings:
