The IF as an institute for advanced and further training
The IF has stood for high quality academic advanced and further training for over forty years. It has short and long term offers for post-graduate trained specialists, some of which are certified by the IF. The educational offers differ in terms of length and scope, but are all oriented to meet the requirements of specialists and the labour market, as well as scientific and research findings. Working closely with cooperation partners and sponsors from different fields of practice is one of the central elements of maintaining the level of quality. Academically trained teaching staff from universities, industry, other scientific and academic institutions as well as advisory councils support and promote dynamism in the post-graduate sector. An appropriate methodological and didactic approach takes the special requirements of adult learning into account. Recent scientific findings are connected with the professional practice of the participants to provide innovative impulses for developing professional actions.
