Training Levels

Our trainings are target group oriented. We provide a modular training concept where we have defined three qualification levels and two learning paths for operators and technicians/maintenance personnel.

Basic Level

The Basic Level trainings familiarize operators and technicians/maintainers with the equipment and provide a technical overview of the product and its structure, e.g. for Project Managers. This level is comparable to Organizational Level Maintenance (OLM) or Level 1 Maintenance trainings.

Standard Level

To achieve the Standard Level, we enable participants to work without supervision in standard situations. We train technicians in maintenance tasks up to Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) replacement. This course is comparable to Intermediate Level Maintenance (ILM) or Level 2 Maintenance trainings.

Operators will learn to perform their standard assignments and to operate the product in full functional scope without higher-level assistance.

Advanced Level

At the Advanced Level courses participants are trained to perform as full experts in their operational or technical area. The combination of in-depth knowledge and hands on experience allows the participants to provide technical supervision of Standard Level tasks.

The Advanced Maintainer Training includes the managing of tasks beyond standard maintenance and may require the use of special tools and test equipment. This course is comparable to Depot Level Maintenance (DLM) or Level 3 Maintenance trainings.

The Advanced Operator Training is designed to provide capabilities in the area of system supervision as well as operational configuration and administration.

Training Portfolio

You can choose your desired training per category, skill level or product. Our trainings convey all important theoretical knowledge, but also include many practical exercises, increasingly within the more advanced courses. The standardized trainings shown in this overview can be adjusted to your needs on request.

For the best learning effect we generally suggest to perform the trainings at your facilities on your own equipment. Upon request we also offer trainings at our facilities or as a Live-Online Training e.g. in situations where travelling is not the best option.

Our courses are planned on a basis of 8 training units (of 45 minutes each) per day, but can be adapted to your requirements.

All training classes will be held in English. The training documentation will be provided in English only, unless requested otherwise. In case an interpretation from English to another language is needed, the training duration may have to be adapted accordingly.

Each participant receives a training certificate after completing the course.

Technology Trainings

Our Technology Trainings are intended to convey an introduction to technologies or standards without focus on specific products, e. g. for air traffic surveillance.

These classroom courses are designed for novices as well as for experienced staff, who wish to stay up-to-date on the latest developments in their areas of interest.

Product Trainings

Our Product Trainings provide the essential knowledge along defined skill levels related to your HENSOLDT products and systems.

We hereby differentiate three consecutive levels of knowledge for operators and technicians/maintainers.

In advance to each training, we assess the participants’ knowledge level based on the necessary preconditions for each skill level. Each training is followed by an assessment of the learning experience.
