Efficient and individual.
Good training and practical experience are the guarantees for optimal and trouble-free use of your test systems. POC imparts its know-how through specialist seminars and training courses. Good advice from the beginning.
For the best start with a new POC or AIP equipment we offer our customers’ test engineers a special course. This practical training enables the operators to acquire a quick and efficient familiarity with the new test technology in a short period of time. The length of the course is dependent on the complexity of the test system and the level of knowledge of the participants.
POC Qualified trainers with field experience make sure that the seminars run smoothly and are flexibly organized, and that your employees receive practical training. Training takes place in a pleasant atmosphere. Training is also conducted in our branch offices.
Typical training programs includes:
- Test equipment operation
- Power and control systems
- Measurement technology
- Automation and evaluation systems
- Applications knowledge
