KWS – Knowledge Workmanship Safety

2019 Training Courses

The team at KWS PowerTech Training Center (KRAFTWERKSSCHULE E.V. – KWS) is looking forward to welcoming you and your colleagues in our training facility in Essen, Germany for one or all of our 2019 English language training courses!

Constant changes in technological development require of power plant personnel to stay up to date. Our courses offerings and diverse trainingmethods address this problem fundamentally and comprehensively. We never lose sight of adapting skills to needs. Keeping up professional knowledge and adapting that knowledge as necessary are of fundamental importance in all fields of expertise. This applies to conventionalpower plant personnel as well as to the personnel of smaller and industrial facilities for power and heat generation from multiple fuel sources.

A modular Power Plant Technology Training will be organized in 2019, covering the aspects and methods of thermal power and heat generation,developing the skills of the participants. Each module includes a detailed examination at the end with a certificate issued to the successfulparticipants.
