The WKI | AKADEMIE® is the further education establishment of the Fraunhofer WKI. The focus courses “Bonding in wooden construction” and “Quality control in the production of wood-based materials” are aimed at employees of the woodworking and wood-processing industries as well as students of civil engineering. Furthermore, the portfolio also includes on-demand training addressing “Formaldehyde testing methods” and specific questions from industry.

Through the continuous further development of its courses and the balanced division into theoretical and practical units, the WKI | AKADEMIE® today appeals to a wide range of participants and interested parties from the wood-based materials and prefabricated-house industries as well as from glulam and renovation companies.
