Our TVET Services: Qualifying People, Strengthening the Economy, Creating Prospects for All

A solid technical education is the key for sustained economic development. The nature and depth of the qualification play a decisive role in determining whether one is successful in entering the working world and earning a living. Improving initial vocational training is, at the same time, a decisive factor in determining whether a company, region, or society as a whole can keep the pathway to the future open.

With TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training), we can lay the foundation for this. With our experience and extensive expertise in implementation, we support governments and private enterprises at numerous locations worldwide.

Our services in the area of TVET and employee development:

“For more than 40 years, TÜV Rheinland has been providing training in careers with a future. This is naturally in line with Germany's dual vocational and educational training system; not only because it is stipulated by German law, but also because we are convinced that theory and practice must go hand in hand in technical and commercial careers. The results speak for themselves: Our apprentices achieve top training results and exceptional retention rates in their first role – often worldwide. We have therefore given many young people the perfect start to an independent life.”

Markus Dohm, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of the Business Stream Academy & Life Care at TÜV Rheinland

Investments in technical and commercial educations produce the greatest yields and in diverse ways:

  • Securing livelihoods: Well-trained young people find more employment opportunities in their own localities.
  • Driving growth: Companies can access qualified personnel to boost production and offer improved services.
  • Reducing costs: Experience shows that hiring qualified local personnel is significantly more cost effective than international recruitment.
  • Securing the future: By training young people and promoting continuing professional development, companies and institutions can safeguard their market position, engage skilled personnel, and nurture talent.

This is where TÜV Rheinland Academy comes in: We supply the public and private sector with services and solutions to help them deliver a modern and attractive technical and commercial education.

Typical challenges for companies and institutions

Multinational companies offer the same products to many locations around the globe. Accordingly, the requirements for technical personnel to install or maintain these products are identical. Locally, while jobs may have the same name and description, the actual expertise required differs. They have to be adapted to the actual requirements and harmonized with each other across the corporate group. How is this accomplished economically and measurably?

In many countries, professions are trained in purely academic training centers. The practical application of the knowledge is lacking. At the same time, the trainers complain of insufficient links with industry. Training contents are obsolete; new technologies are normally not part of the curriculum.

Establishing and enhancing technical competence

We are familiar with these challenges. We offer solutions that support companies, the government and individuals equally in the establishing and enhancing technical competence.

The ability of a country to compete begins with the professional training of its youth
