Training and certification by the Contract Academy?

In contract management, "knowledge" is the decisive variable. Success requires employees to act correctly at the correct time. Our training therefore focuses on different levels of contract management and imparts specific knowledge tailored to the desired function.

What qualifications does the Contract Academy offer?

Contract and claims management performs when employees in different disciplines work together. Not every employee will create a claim or negotiate with the customer. For example, planning staff should know how contracts can be used to protect their own interests when a  client wants to alter the contract. Our training concept therefore focuses on three qualification levels.

Online training in a dialog

We offer different models for online training. The standard is independent learning. The lessons are worked through completely on one's own without time constraints. This concept is suitable for all individual participants. Participants can discuss topics with the Contract Academy via the integrated chat function. This is the usual procedure available to members.

Blended learning: regular dialog

Blended learning is a form of training that combines traditional teaching methods with digital learning. There is a time limit for working through individual lessons, e.g. 3 lessons within 14 days. Afterwards, a joure-fixe is arranged to recap and deepen topics of the lessons worked on.

This joure-fixe is then done via an online communication tool. Experience shows that such a method is very suitable for companies and leads to a much better consolidation of know-how than is the case with traditional methods.

We charge a flat fee for joure-fixe appointments. Contact us, we will be happy to submit you an attractive offer.

Coaching: Permanent contact person

The coaching concept also requires you to work through the lessons on your own. However, "stand-by" support is provided, allowing participants to discuss content with Contract Academy experts at any time. This is particularly suitable for the targeted training of individual employees in order to prepare them for taking on tasks in contract and claims management within a short period of time.

Additional costs are incurred for this intensive support, depending on the individual case. Contact us and we will be happy to make you an attractive offer.

Do you have any questions about the concepts? We will be happy to explain the advantages of each model to you.
