Our training offer is modular. This means that each course unit consists of a half-day module (except Module 12 and 14, which last a full day). These can easily be combined with other modules on the same or another day. In this way, you can choose which modules you wish to follow and which dates suit you best.

Our Webinar: Less Water, More Beer 

In addition to our extensive range of open training courses that are accessible to everyone, EPAS also offers the possibility of organising specific training courses on site. These training courses are 100% tailor-made, adapted to the wishes of our customers.

Together with the customer, the specific training needs are determined. EPAS can even make an evaluation of these needs in a TNA (Training Need Analysis) on behalf of the client. For this purpose, the existing skills of the persons involved are checked with the client and where additional competence is required. Based on this, an optimal training schedule is designed.

Company-specific training courses have a number of additional possibilities:

  • Tailor-made training can be provided in function of the target audience. These can be operators, lab technicians, process technologists or decision makers.
  • Specific training can be given in function of the process or certain techniques. For this purpose, the training can be fully customized.
  • On-job training is possible. This also offers the possibility to take into account the working hours of the operators (shifts).

The training can be given in Dutch, English or French.
