  • Online Seminar

    Our online seminars in the Cybersecurity Training Lab usually consist of several elements. A central component is web sessions with fixed dates in which interaction with the speakers and participants is very important. Another important component is the learning elements on our Fraunhofer learning platform. There, people can work through the content at their own pace using videos, graphics, podcasts, exercises or short texts. The content does not have to be completed in one session but can be worked through gradually. Each of our online seminars has a permanent contact person who accompanies you in your learning process and is available for content-related questions. The sequence and times that the online seminar and learning elements take place on the learning platform can be found in the seminar description for the respective course. After successful participation, you will receive a certified confirmation of participation.
