Second training course for Writing Advisors (IHK = German Chamber of Industry and Commerce)

In combination with knowledge of the products, the specialist sales person becomes a valued consultant for those learning to write. The training consists of four days attendance and two self-learning days for the participants.

Günter Schmid acted as IHK Nuremberg for Middle Franconia contributor and was responsible for the sales information, such as the setup and course of the writing consulting.
Between the days of attendance in October and November, the participants prepared different topics in a self-learning phase. The training concluded November 21st with a written and oral examination which simulated a consultation. Dr.-Ing. Marianela Diaz Meyer, institute director of the Schreibmotorik Institut and Karlheinz Friebe, director of the department IHK Academy Middle Franconia handed over the certificates to the participants.
