Technology Training

HENSOLDT´s technology training is intended to convey an introduction to technologies or standards without focus on specific products, e.g. for air traffic surveillance.

Web Based Training

Our web based training provides flexible learning possibilities. This allows each learner to complete a course independent of other participants or a trainer. Mainly theoretical basics are imparted in this kind of training.

Training Levels

Our training courses 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

Basic level training familiarises operators and technicians/maintenance staff with equipment and provides a technical overview of the respective products and their structure. This is useful for project managers, for example. This level is comparable to organisational-level maintenance (OLM) or level 1 maintenance training.

Standard Level

To achieve the standard level, we enable participants to work without supervision in standard situations. We train technicians on maintenance tasks up to line replaceable unit (LRU) replacement. Courses at this level are comparable to intermediate-level maintenance (ILM) or level 2 maintenance training.

Operators learn to perform their standard assignments and to use the full functional scope of the respective products without higher-level assistance.

Advanced Level

At the advanced level, participants are trained to become full experts in their operational or technical area. Through the combination of in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience, the participants are able to provide technical supervision of Standard Level tasks.

The Advanced Maintainer Training includes the management of tasks beyond standard maintenance and may require the use of special tools and test equipment. Such courses are comparable to depot-level maintenance (DLM) or level 3 maintenance training.

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