The university course is conducted using the technology of e-learning.
Participants are provided with short videos ("nuggets") that cover about 75% of the learning content.
Each video is accompanied by a script that summarises the content in short form. In addition, a detailed script and a questionnaire are available. Self-tests for the individual learning videos provide immediate feedback for the participants. Building on the basic knowledge, the application knowledge is taught in the form of five 2-hour webinar units.
The acquired knowledge is applied in the individual elaboration of four real-life examples. After submitting these, two 2-hour online Q&A sessions are offered, which serve as preparation for the written final examination.
Only specialised protection ensures the reliability of the networks, consumer systems and energy generation plants!
