Feedback of training participants


Classroom Training: Functional safety basic knowledge

Owing to Mr Hermes I finally succeeded to unravel the complexity of functional safety. He so explicitly answered each individual question that at the end of the basic knowledge training I had really taken in the basics of functional safety. (Translated from German)

Martin S.


Mentoring: Technical Safety Concept

Mr Hermes makes excellent use of his practical experience for precise mentoring. By his help I quickly learned to align the functional safety requirements to the company-specific processes. His frequent feedback on my work by telephone helped me to establish an efficient workflow straight away. (Translated from German)

Tobias W.


Blended Learning: Concept

Hermes Functional Safety Academy has set up a blended-learning concept for functional safety for our company. This concept enables us to teach both the necessary theoretical knowledge and practical skills.
