Register for the examination to prove suitability as a trainer (trainer aptitude test)

Service Description

As a trainer, you must prove that you have the basic pedagogical, organizational and legal knowledge required for vocational training and that you are familiar with important training methods.

You demonstrate this aptitude in an examination. The examination consists of a written and a practical part.

In the written part of the examination, you must complete case-related tasks from all fields of activity. The written examination usually lasts three hours. One examination set consists of approx. 80 tasks. This part of the exam usually takes place as a PC exam.
