Training courses

cut-e offers comprehensive training in all our products and related issues. The training courses take place either at cut-eoffices or in-house. Our programmes can be purpose-designed for the needs and goals of your organisation.

At cut-e we believe in reducing the barriers to using our assessment products. In most countries there is no formal requirement for training before you can use the cut-e products. They are designed to be user-friendly and ready to use. The results are also clearly understood.

Nevertheless we are often asked for guidance about more advanced usage, how our products compare to other products on the market (conversion courses) or guidance about the process in which the products are embedded e.g. a 360 degree feedback process or a pre-selection and selection process. We frequently conduct both open courses and specifically designed in-house courses ranging from product user training and skills training to process guidance.
