Quality Assessment

Knowledge transfer


With the WKI | AKADEMIE®, we offer you a professional and career-concurrent advanced training format through modularly-structured certification programs in the areas of "Bonding in wooden construction" and “Quality control in the production of wood-based materials". In addition to further intensive courses, such as "Formaldehyde testing methods", we also answer your individual questions during requirement-oriented trainings. 


Current courses dates:

Focus course “Quality control in the production of wood-based materials”: 23th to 27th October 2017

Initiated by the Fraunhofer WKI department Quality Assessment (QA), the conception of a new, market-oriented, extra-occupational further training program took place in 2016. The program is aimed to to specialists and managers from the wood-working and wood-processing industries. In cooperation with the Institute for Building Construction and Timber Structures (iBHolz) of the Technische Universität Braunschweig, “Bonding in Wooden Construction“ will also be offered as a new elective subject for students of the master program in civil engineering from the winter semester 2016/17 onwards. The special subject of “wooden construction”, which is integrated into the study course, is thereby expanded by one elected module.

In addition to the training programs, the portfolio includes further intensive courses such as “Formaldehyde Testing Methods” as well as requirement-oriented training on specific issues from the industry.
