    The most noticeable thing about the training was the competence of the trainer, who didn’t avoid a single question but gave us clear explanations – so we understood everything clearly. By the end you felt like you’d learnt a huge amount of things and you understood it.

    Organisational & legal information

    Information on the training programme

    Some courses take place several times a year as classroom training sessions. Others are only offered as in-house training.

    To make a binding reservation, book directly through the website or send us an order. We will confirm course dates as soon as we have received a minimum number of reservations. You will be sent all required information on course arrangements in advance. Fees include digital course materials, and, if you come to our sites, lunch and refreshments during breaks.

    Most of our courses can also be booked as in-house training sessions. Our instructors will be happy to travel directly to your place of work and train your teams on site. We can also mix and match the content of in-house courses and take a particular situation affecting your projects into account. We will be happy to write a concept proposal for your specific training requirements.

    All courses outlined in our training programme can be held in German or English. Our training materials are written in English.

    You will receive the training documents as a PDF. We recommend that you have your notebook or tablet with you during the course.

    Training package: Seminar skills and attractive discounts

    • 10% early-bird booking discount if you register six or more weeks before a training session.
    • 10% group discount if you register more than one participant from your company for the same course.

    Want to save even more? Discounts can be combined for the same course.

    These conditions do not apply to VDA examination fees for Automotive SPICE® assessor training sessions or the Scaled Agile, Inc. fee for SAFe training.

    We strongly recommend that you have the appropriate ISO standards at hand for and during the exam, and of course during your further work.

    For the Cybersecurity Engineer training (TÜV Nord) this concerns ISO/SAE 21434, for the Functional Safety Engineer course (TÜV Rheinland) the safety standard ISO 26262. For Automotive SPICE® training, however, you will receive the model in the form of our original pocket guide.

    For legal reasons, we are unfortunately not authorized to provide you with a copy of ISO standards. Please ask your employer if you can obtain the respective standard there.

    For courses in our seminar rooms, the fees include digital course materials, lunch and refreshments during breaks per person.

    Our services will be invoiced before beginning of training course.

    Terms of payment: 10 days net. In case of late payment late interest will be charged in accordance with current BGB regulations, in particular §288 BGB (German Civil Code).

    This offer is only open to companies or registered tradespersons. All fees are subject to current sales tax and must be paid on receipt of invoice. Early-bird and group discounts will be subtracted as necessary from invoices.

    We will confirm receipt of your registration. Registrations can be cancelled without penalty up to 6 weeks before each individual event; after that the following rules apply:

    • 6 weeks to 4 weeks before the start of the event = 10%.

    All courses may be subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances.

    We charge the examination fees of third parties (such as VDC QMC and Scaled Agile Inc. as well as TÜV Rheinland and TÜV Nord) on their behalf. Such fees are not eligible for a discount.

    Your personal information will be stored by KUGLER MAAG CIE GmbH in order to organise the event. By registering for a course you also agree to us contacting you by fax, email or telephone. If you do not wish to consent to us using your information in this way, please send us a message or get in touch. You have the right to withdraw your consent to this arrangement at any time.

    If you take part in an examination with a third-party provider such as the VDA QMC and Scaled Agile Inc. as well as TÜV Rheinland and TÜV Nord, we will pass on the necessary data to the respective provider.
