MTM – Work design productive and safe

For MTM Instructors: MTM-1 Teaching License Also Valid for MTM-1 Base

16 Nov. 2018
The new training and examination regulations at Deutsche MTM-Vereinigung e. V. and therefore the new training structure come into force on 1 January 2019. The most significant change is the introduction of MTM-1 Base. This training course lays the foundation for the MTM method and all the fundamental movements and associated rules in the MTM-1 process building block system are communicated. Using simple exercises, participants can test what progress they are making in their knowledge. The practical consolidation of the MTM-1 knowledge, i.e. analyzing more complex examples of test situations and films, as well as the final examination then take place in the MTM-1 training that follows this.

What is important for MTM Instructors:
Those who wish to teach MTM-1 Base and MTM-1 can continue to use their teaching license for MTM-1 – i.e. there is no change here. However, there are changes in the equipment:

MTM-1 Base

  • Teaching document
  • MTM-1 data card
  • Revision tasks
  • Examination (multiple choice, approx. 1.5 h)


  • MTM-1 data card
  • Work system descriptions for the educational films
  • Revision tasks
  • Examination (multiple choice and film analysis)

The documents for MTM-1 Base and MTM-1 will be available from the download center from 1 January 2019 onwards.

Important information for MTM Instructor training
The process architecture module will be dropped for the training courses for MTM or EAWS Instructors in the future.

Training courses booked for in-house corporate tuition for people wishing to become MTM Instructors or license courses may also be shortened or extended, depending on the number of participants.
