Service Description

With an advanced training examination you can, for example, obtain a qualification as an industrial foreman, business administrator, business economist or Bachelor / Master Professional.

To be able to take an advanced training examination, you must already have an initial professional qualification. This is, for example, a completed vocational training. Depending on the degree you are aiming for, you may have to meet further admission requirements and have work experience, for example. The office responsible for the degree you are aiming for will be happy to advise you on the relevant requirements.

You should prepare yourself well in terms of content for the respective further training examination. For this purpose, there are, for example, courses offered by private providers and self-study materials. However, this is not a legal requirement for admission to the examination.

Depending on the profession and the federal state, different bodies are responsible for taking the examination. Usually these are the chambers of industry and commerce, professional chambers or other bodies responsible for vocational training. The office responsible for your region will inform you about examination possibilities in your region. If the further training examination is not held at your location, you will find out where you can turn to as an alternative.

The further training examination is taken and assessed by an examination board which works on a voluntary basis.

Continuing education examinations consist of several examinations, which you must take on different examination dates as a written knowledge examination and as a practical or oral examination.
