We train your employees on Engineering, Maintenance and Asset Management !

Skilled workforce is crucial for any organization

The demographic change due to the higher average age of employees and the threat of a shortage of skilled workers are current challenges for every maintenance organization . In the specialist discussions it is spoken of “war of the talents”.

In fact, these occupational fields were not always popular in the past due to the low development potential, despite the high importance for any manufacturing company. Organization, employees and knowledge management is therefore becoming more and more a strategic success factor in maintenance. Continuous opportunities in the development and further education of maintenance staff prevents an impending lack of skilled workers. The career opportunities within these technical business organizations create a more attractive work environment, reducing employee turnover. The knowledge management consists of strategies for personnel development as well as integrated training and qualification concepts for all specialists and executives.

Ultimately, the company and the success of the people lives!

Personal
Development
Programme

ICON Academy

In order to offer the maintenance specialists and managers an attractive workplace, companies rely on career models in their own organization. Provide employees of all hierarchies with a performance incentive through personnel development, support and performance-based incentive systems in a corresponding corporate culture.

Only motivated people, whose individual needs are fulfilled, provide extraordinary achievements to the increase of the availabilities of machines and plants as well as efficient use of resources. You benefit from this!

Personnel development means all measures of education, support and work structuring that are systematically planned, realized and evaluated by the employees of the (maintenance) organization in order to achieve maximum plant availability with the most economical expenditures.

Executive
Training
Programme

ICON Academy

Coaching is the joint development work of a manager and coach with the goal of optimal task fulfillment.

Executives in the asset management and maintenance system must be able to establish the necessary changes in the organization to ensure maximum asset effectiveness (eg, OEE or technical availability), while maximizing cost-effectiveness and resource deployment. This requires a wide range of additional skills, social skills and soft skills.

For young executives in the technical areas as well, professional support in all matters relating to asset management and maintenance is a key success factor. Especially as there are high age structures in this organizational unit.

Our Seminars

“Qualification enables the utilization of knowledge, skills and abilities”.
Increase the knowledge, skills and abilities of asset management professionals and executives through our seminars.

Individual in-house trainings and open seminars all over Germany, here are our special and practical seminars.

These courses provide you with a personal profile that allows you to master the necessary topics in asset management and maintenance as well as to profit from your experience.

The emphasis is on broadening the basic and core competences in maintenance management through our “basic courses”, the imparting of advanced application and strategy knowledge (for example RCM) through our “Expert Courses”. In addition, we offer special seminars in maintenance, such as “error and vulnerability management” or our “exchange of experience for management personnel”.
