SQM Training / SQM Certificates
The SQM system allows for many different, sometimes complex applications. In
order to make full use of the potential of SQM and to use the more complex tools
properly, some training is needed. SQM-praxis offers different kinds of training
courses and releases certificates for reliable SQM experts.
SQM Training courses
SQM-praxis offers training courses concerning the concepts and
the use of the SQM system
- for different purposes and tools
- for different target groups
SQM training courses are composed of training modules which can be combined
in different ways. The table of SQM training modules is intended to give
you a general outline, actual training courses may be composed differently.
SQM training courses are offered as:
- in-house courses for institutions and companies
- public courses directly offered by SQM-praxis

experienced consultant with no prior experience with SQM, acquiring one of these
certificates will require about eight days of training course, eight weeks of
practice in an own project combined with four days of coaching. The costs of
