Seminars
IMST offers a 1 or 2 days seminar or a 2 weeks training around LTCC, which can be held at customer's location or at IMST. The seminar documents are written in English. The presentation can either be in English or in German. Special requirements and interests can be incorporated into the programme. Have a look for IMST's standard seminar or extended seminar. Please contact ltcc for detailed information. The following table suggests the main topics for a typical seminar, further items can be added on request:
