The journey is the reward
How exactly does our academY work?
Everything starts with an introductory week, of course, followed by individual discussions in which we work out your current level of knowledge, your goals and wishes in order to be able to support you in achieving them in the end.
Then the weeks of theory start. Here you will learn everything you need to know in both areas by means of presentations and finally work on problem scenarios in groups, which you can then present with your team for the whole course. You learn about the most important documents of the known standards, how they are structured, what they contain and how to use them. You will learn the basic management of both areas so that you can later manage projects independently and professionally.
These theory weeks end with a small intermediate exam to consolidate your gained knowledge.
Before we move on to the practical phase, individual discussions are held with you again to see how close you have already come to achieving your goals and what we can do to help you reach them by the time you graduate.
Now it’s time to specialize – do you want to dive down into functional safety or cybersecurity? You have now learned the basic theory in both areas. Which area do you want to focus on and apply your knowledge practically? There will still be points of contact with the other area, but you experience those with a different viewpoint.
At this point – but also at any time during the entire academY – you have the opportunity to give your personal feedback. What was done well and where do you see room for improvement? What can we do in order to achieve the best possible result and prepare you in the best possible way? We can only develop ourselves and the academY together with you.
Now comes the practical phase. How do they work once you decided on an area to focus on?
The theoretical aspects of the first phase are applied using real project situations. You will use what you have learned in the group and will be prepared to face the challenges of the industry. Of course, we will always be there to advise you, but with an emphasis on you working autonomously.
Each group will work on a topic in their area and then present it to the whole course – the other group will either review the results and give you feedback or represent the client in project simulations. This ensures that you will still be involved in both areas and experience real project situations outside of your focus with a different point of view.
After you have mastered these practical phases, we conclude the academY with an examination and soon you will hold your certificate of participation in your hands, which will be your first step on your road to success in the area you selected.
At the end of the training, we will go into retrospective again and determine whether you have reached your personal goals and what possibilities exist for your professional future. Naturally, you we’ll give our best to support you to get a direct job entry.
