E-Learning: Demand Increases in Germany and Abroad

Participants have been able to take the first step to becoming an MTM Practitioner – the MTM-1 Base training course – in digital form too since the beginning of this year.

The number of bookings per corporation has increased too. Firms are often registering more than ten participants for an MTM-1 Base e-learning course at the same time. After all, this pays dividends in many different ways – as the new video entitled “MTM by E-Learning” illustrates.
