Training and further education are becoming increasingly important – both internally and externally – within the JUMO Group. All of the activities are housed in JUMO Campus, which in 2019 can look back on its 25-year history.
The first customer seminar was offered in September 1994. The reason was obvious: over the years, JUMO measurement and control technology had become more and more comprehensive. A simple manual was often no longer sufficient to convey the complete functional range and all the options. The offered training courses soon became very popular. As a result, in 1995 a training center had sprung up on the JUMO company grounds in Fulda.
In subsequent years the need for training constantly increased. The training formats were also constantly developed further. Soon after, in addition to exclusive training courses, traditional seminars, technical literature, e-learning courses, and, since 2016, webinars were also held.
Sabine Häcker, who has been managing the JUMO Campus since 2015, can show impressive figures: "In 2018, we held a total of 177 training courses with around 1 500 participants. Our webinars, of which we offered 89 last year alone, are experiencing particularly high growth rates." In addition, 170 e-learning courses and technical literature in English and German are offered.
In general, the greatest dynamic can currently be observed in the online sector. "We notice this trend, on the one hand, on our Campus portal, which has been available to our customers and employees as an online tool since 2017. On the other hand, we have seen a growing interest in self-regulated learning on demand," adds Sabine Häcker.
That is why over the next few years the focus will be on expanding the e-learning courses even further. "The idea is to evolve the Campus portal into a personalized learning portal," explains Sabine Häcker.
However, when it comes to the Campus motto "from the practitioner for the practitioner" nothing has changed over the last 25 years. All of the tutors are proven specialists in the field of measurement and control technology who are able to relay even technically complex material in a comprehensible and didactically appropriate manner.
