Consultancy structure and methodology:

 

Greenhouse Technology Consultants in Asia

We have set up a training method that combines theoretical with practical training. The trainees acquire the knowledge and skills that relate to their job expertise. They become highly competent in their field of work.

The theoretical training consists of a customized program that fulfills the specific needs of our client. This is from years of acquired knowledge and process standards that have proven successful. The training program combines together our knowledge, experience and the input of specialists, in an easy to use format.

During our practical consultancy sessions we prefer to use the production facilities of our clients. Our experience is that training ‘on the job’ is the most efficient and successful method. Trainees learn exactly what is necessary to excel in their particular position, in their own working environment. This practical consultancy is by far the largest and most important part of our consultancy work.
