B&R has invested in yet another center for training and professional development featuring state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. One of B&R's top priorities has always been to provide its customers, partners and employees with opportunities for targeted training and continuous professional development.

More than 100 trainers share their high level of expertise in customer seminars. Theoretical material is always reinforced through practical exercises.   

The Automation Academy provides over one hundred seminar rooms around the world for training purposes. The training seminars themselves help participants develop the tools and skills they need to create efficient solutions to today's automation challenges. The field of automation demands sophisticated and innovative solutions based on state-of-the-art technology, which makes well-trained employees an essential factor in building and maintaining a company's competitive edge. This is why B&R provides its customers and partners with an extensive selection of training seminars that covers all B&R products and solutions.

Engineering Camp: An investment in expertise

B&R places the same emphasis on training and professional development for its own employees as it does for its customers and partners. Young engineers participate in four-month "Engineering Camps" to develop an expert understanding of the automation technology used in various industries. This training gives every engineer in B&R's global workforce a uniform skill set and level of training to ensure optimal customer support anywhere in the world.

Participants gain from practical experience
