  • Live Online Trainings: Webinars – commonly with one speaker – bring you up to date quickly and conveniently in about 2 hours. In live online seminars, on the other hand, you participate - almost like in a face-to-face event – right at your PC in a complete 1 or 2 days seminar and with several speakers - including the opportunity to discuss with speakers and participants. Here you will get to the currently offered Live Online Seminars and Webinars.

  • Recorded Online Seminars: If you don't have time to participate in a webinar or a live online seminar on the date it takes place, the recordings of webinars and complete seminars provide you with the opportunity to watch them at a later time - anytime and anywhere. These recordings are a 1:1 replay of the live webinars and seminars, including questions from attendees and answers from the speakers. Here you will get to the currently offered recorded online seminars and webinars.
