Reifenhäuser has started its own extrusion academy under the name of AR:DEL. It offers basic and advanced training courses based on new training methods and products for analog, digital, and self-organized learning. In collaboration with the Bonn/Rhein-Sieg Chamber of Commerce, AR:DEL developed the first certificate course “Specialists in Extrusioneering (IHK)” that provides attendees with basic and advanced training in line operation. The training course consists of several stages in technical line training and training in digital features.
The first four trainees successfully completed the training course “Specialist in Extrusioneering” (IHK) and received their certificates on the Reifenhäuser booth at K 2019.on October 16. The certificates were handed over to them by Stefan Hagen, President of the Bonn/Rhein-Sieg Chamber of Commerce, Otto Brandenburg, CEO of the CoC Advanced Training Academy, and Ulrich Reifenhäuser, CSO of the Reifenhäuser Group.
Stefan Hagen praised the Reifenhäuser initiative, “By developing and starting this training course, Reifenhäuser has made a valuable, up-to-date contribution to the training of its own work force, and secures the high level of labor qualification in the Bonn/Rhein-Sieg region.”
During the certificate award ceremony, Ulrich Reifenhäuser also emphasized the enormous benefits of the new academy, “Qualified employees are a success factor and a genuine competitive advantage for every company on the road to digitization and sustainable production. Thanks to AR:DEL, we now have the necessary qualification process in our own hands. Our customers will also reap enormous benefits from this. I’m proud to see what we have achieved so far.”
Besides the certificate course, AR:DEL offers training courses for beginners and advanced trainees – from basic training as machine operator, process training for supervisors, through to lean and production management for production managers. The academy bases its training methods on a combination of analog training, e-learning, how-to-do videos, and practical units on the high-tech lines at the Reifenhäuser Technology Center, or on the customer’s own lines.
