What is ICON Academy ?

During a time of globalisation, of reduced resources, of increasing change and of customer expectations the need for effective and efficient skills development and life-long learning has never been greater. In response to the arising challenges and to cluster our competencies, we have founded the ICON Academy as a competence-centre and learning institution providing theoretical and practical knowledge transfer to those who are interested in developing professional and personnel skills. The reputation in excellence of ICON-INSTITUTE is built on over 35 years professional experience in international projects and research studies.

All training courses are learner-centred, in which we transfer an innovative approach as well as latest research methods combined with a dynamic mix of discussions, practices, feedback, tutor input, coaching, exercises, group work and breakout groups. We make use of latest academic developments and practical knowhow in the chosen field and help participants to translate that knowledge into their day-to-day situations and workplace.
