Practical information

Safety in the workplace is also discussed. Everything is aimed at simplifying communication with other colleagues and making work processes run more smoothly.

The course is supplemented with what is important to you, for example company standards, specific terminology, work culture and / or safety instructions. The basis for these extra lessons is formed by video recordings in your company.
