Refresher courses

The Training Center for Adhesive Bonding Technology at Fraunhofer IFAM in Bremen has carried out internationally accredited training courses in this area for more than 20 years. During this period enormous developments have taken place in adhesive bonding technology and also in training in this technical field. The DVS®/EWF workforce training system has been successfully established in Europe and is becoming established worldwide. The course contents have been continuously updated to take account of the dynamic developments in this technological field and enormous improvements have been made with didactic aspects of the courses. For these reasons we are now offering three-day Refresher courses for relevant DVS®/EWF accredited courses. In 2019 an EAB-Refresher, an EAS-Refresher and an International Refresher are offered.
