Quality

It is our objective to deliver our training courses always at the best level of quality. By questioning participants about their impressions, we are always on the look out for our weaknesses and ways of improving.
 
On the one hand, there are questionnaires, which are statistically evaluated. In this way, we are able to establish the common weaknesses across all the courses and the importance the participants place on each weakness. This thus gives us a good indication how to prioritize the necessary improvements.
 
On the other hand, at the end of each course, we engage in discussions with our customers and discuss possibilities for improvement. The outcome of any improvements are confirmed by the changes seen on the questionnaires. In this way, we can monitor the effectiveness of our measures undertaken.
 
This all leads to a continual improvement of quality of our services on offer.
