- Tailored Training Concept for 30 Iraqi Customers of Richard Wolf GmbH
Ziehm Imaging, established in Nuremberg in 2008, reports a huge increase in demand for its training programs. In 2010 alone, the number of participants doubled for technical courses given by mobile C-arm manufacturer
Ziehm Imaging. Individualized training programs developed and held in cooperation with larger customers and partners also experienced a sharp rise in popularity. These included a tailored training course for 30 Iraqi users of the new lithotripsy machine manufactured by Richard Wolf GmbH which took place in spring 2011.
Tailored training concepts for large customers and partners
Ziehm Imaging has been supporting clinical users of its C-arms for many years through a broad range of basic and advanced training opportunities. The Ziehm Academy offering extends from basic technical training through to advanced, audience-specific courses in intraoperative imaging. These training programs, also given in the form of roadshows across various locations worldwide, deliver an intensive, needs-driven learning experience in small groups.
Recently, Ziehm Imaging stepped up its training offering in cooperation with its larger customers and partners. In spring 2011, the company ran a specialized course for 30 Iraqi lithotripsy specialists. The course was developed in cooperation with Ziehm Imaging's long-term customer, Richard Wolf GmbH - a leading manufacturer of endoscopes and products for minimally invasive surgery - and took place at the Ziehm Academy in Nuremberg. Richard Wolf has been working with Ziehm Imaging for over 20 years and equipped all generations of its lithotriptors with Ziehm Imaging technology. This training course was tailored precisely to the needs of the Iraqi participants and coordinated closely with Richard Wolf, which integrated the course as a module in their overall learning program. "We attach great importance to intensive training for users of our products.
Ziehm Imaging is the perfect partner - not only have they supported us by supplying us with their technology over decades, but they also offer an outstanding after-sales service," says Peter Vallon, Head of ESWT/ESWL at Richard Wolf GmbH.
Increasing safety for users and patients with intensive training
Looking beyond high-tech advances, Ziehm Imaging regards ongoing training as an essential step in the move to bring innovative technologies to clinical environments in a safe and effective manner. "Our training aims to improve clinical results - and thus provide better patient care. To achieve this, we work in small groups and in close collaboration with our customers to regularly develop tailored training concepts," explains Günter Stelzer, Director Special Projects and Education at Ziehm Imaging.
