Open Training

Our open training sessions have been appreciated by the industry for many years. We have created our own coursebooks, tailored to the needs of the Polish user, constantly updating the program and improving methods. We based the programs on our practical knowledge, gained through experience and daily work with GE Digital software. We have developed 11 own programs that complement each other. We also conduct training in English!

Dedicated training

Training sessions dedicated to those who expect an individual approach. These training sessions differ from open training in an individual selection of training topics (e.g. for a specific project). In this case, the date and duration of the training is determined individually. We can also add to the offer... a bit of entertainment after the training. Such training is an excellent opportunity for team integration. We have already conducted training courses with canoeing, off-road car and quad rides... and a bonfire. This type of training combines the pleasant with the useful and will be long remembered by the participants.

Online training

The 21st century is the age of remote working. You don't need to leave your office to take part in a training! You can do it online! In this case, the date and duration of the training is determined individually. You are welcome to familiarize yourself with the topics covered by the open training sessions. On their basis, we create training tailored to your needs! You can undergo a full training or a shortened version. Training sessions are conducted via the modern Clickmeeting platform (you will need a browser) and TeamViewer application. You can use two monitors for your convenience, but this is not necessary. Talk to our training specialist and find out more: 32 358 20 23 or write to us at szkolenia@vix.com.pl.
