Education and Training

Education usually occurs at school and in universities. However, is that sufficient in a fast evolving field like laser technology? Surely not – continuing education is vital for maintaining and developing the competence of your technical staff. This holds for your product engineers, technicians, scientists, developers – essentially for anyone involved in developing, manufacturing, testing and repairing laser products. Quite obviously, continuing education is essential in a high-tech area, as it affects the competence, creativity and productivity of your team, also the team spirit and motivation.

And you just found out where to obtain high-level professional advancement courses on laser technology and related areas! From RP Photonics you can get tailored in-house courses on topics like laser technology, fiber optics, nonlinear optics and others.

Tailored Training Courses for Your Technical Team

Dr. Rüdiger Paschotta

A training course with Dr. Paschotta will boost your skills!

The success of a training course depends very much not only on the technical competence of the course instructor, but also on his willingness and ability to precisely match the attendees' needs. Dr. Paschotta is a very experienced teacher who carefully focuses on the actual purpose of such a training course and knows well what is essential for reaching the goals.

Already the planning will be done in a well structured manner:

Benefits of Training Courses

Such a training course is a very productive and stimulating experience for a team of a high-tech company (e.g., a laser development team). It can serve several purposes:

The achieved cost savings can substantially exceed the expenditure for the course. Do you know a better way to obtain the mentioned benefits?

In-House Training, Video Transmission

A training course will typically span between one and three full course days and can be performed at your location. Dr. Paschotta presents most materials based on a carefully prepared PowerPoint presentation, but can at any time flexibly respond to questions from the participants.

It is also possible to perform courses with video transmission, eliminating the requirement of the instructor to travel to your location. That allow such courses to be performed at lower cost while saving a lot of CO2 emissions. That approach gives also more flexibility concerning the timing – for example, you may have several half course days spread over a few weeks. Dr. Paschotta has delivered such courses e.g. in California from his office in Germany, and although the personal contact is then less direct, it worked to the full satisfaction of the customers.

Examples for Possible Topics of Training Courses

You may order some general laser training or fiber optics training, but note that you have the option to define much more precisely what is of interest for your team. Here are some examples for topics in the wider area of laser science and laser technology:

These examples are just meant to stimulate ideas. The concrete subjects, focus and level of detail can be agreed upon according to the customer's needs.
