IQ – Industry Qualification

Your training program

HOERBIGER qualification program enables you to strengthen your IQ as well as to become an expert in your daily work and especially in your industry. Follow your individual qualification path for even more success through professional development.

Our training courses are divided into three levels – from introductory level to expert certification, as we want to ensure that the right training is available for you and your level of knowledge. However, it is also possible to start at the desired level at any time, whereby many training courses also build on each other in terms of content.

For that reason, we offer you a completely modular training catalog, therewith you can successively build up your knowledge and continue educate further to the desired level of qualification. In our “menu”, you will find 25 different training modules that you can attend online, as they only take 1.5 hours each. In our “Knowledge Sessions”, that take place in person, we have already compiled a comprehensive 2-day seminar for you. Here, you can choose whether you want to start with the basics or directly acquire expert knowledge. But that's not all: In our “Overhaul School”, consisting of theory and practice, you implement your received theoretical knowledge directly into practice on our training compressor. The HOERBIGER “Training Academy” offers you the complete package: Starting with the theoretical introductory through to practical exercises, you will become an industry expert in 10 days with a technical diploma.

Advanced level

If you already have good knowledge and experience in a subject area, our training offering on an advanced level is exactly what you need. In these trainings you can deepen your knowledge about compressors and expand your professional skills in key areas on a system level. To participate in trainings on this level, you can attend courses from the introductory level in advance.

Expert level

For the step to be an absolute expert in a specialist area, we recommend this highest qualification level. With the relevant professional experience or participation in training courses of the two previous levels, you will receive comprehensive specialist knowledge at expert level. At the end, a short test is conducted to check your level of knowledge. This will be noted on the certificate, of course.
