02/02/2021 | E-learning and webinars still high on the agenda in 2021
"The development will continue in this direction," Dr. Thomas Finsterbusch, head of the MTM Academy, is certain. The pandemic-related pressure on training providers, too, has naturally accelerated the expansion of online offerings. In discussions with member companies and customers, however, it is becoming apparent that digitization will also play a greater role in employee qualification and that the effects – e.g., saving on travel costs or more flexibility in personnel planning – will come more clearly into focus. "For us as an organization, in turn, the digitization of training is a crucial prerequisite for the uniform and appropriate dissemination of MTM worldwide," emphasizes Finsterbusch, who took over the chairmanship of the MTM ASSOCIATION e. V. examination board at the beginning of this year.
More than 1,000 participants via webinar
MTM-Institut and MTM-Akademie already laid the foundation stone with the development of MTM-1 Base as e-learning. In the meantime, training to become an MTM and EAWS practitioner as well as further training to become an MTM and EAWS instructor is possible completely digitally via webinar. Already in the pandemic year 2020, more than 1,000 participants took advantage of this offer.
Digital training courses are also very popular at the beginning of this year. "However, we expect to be able to offer face-to-face training dates again by summer at the latest," Finsterbusch said. Additional online offerings include the MTM Lounge for practitioners and instructors (every 3rd Tuesday of the month, registration HERE) and training to become an online trainer, which many in-house instructors also use to get fit in this area.
You can find an overview of the online offer in the booking portal of the MTM Academy at training.mtm.org and right HERE.
New recertification offer
For participants of an MTM training who want to refresh their knowledge exclusively in one of the MTM process module systems, the MTM Academy is planning a completely new way of recertification.
