Half and Full-Day Training
We are offering training courses both in the classical full-day as well as in a half-day format.

This format allows students to attend and fully focus on the course for a couple of hours and then catch up with their day-to-day job.The training content of both schedule formats is exactly the same.

Consigas is running training courses in a half-day format for many years, and we have received very positive feedback from customers. Students tell us that besides being more flexible, it also enables them to learn more effectively as it gives them more time to process all information resulting in a better understanding.
