Trainings and Events

Controlling, concentrating and promoting expertise is the key to business success. With this in mind, Xella Building Materials started to focus many years ago on a variety of training measures in various personnel development programs for employees and external skills. The Technologie- und Forschungsgesellschaft  plays an important role as a scientific area where in a literal sense, knowledge is created. It is also a place of teaching and transfer of knowledge. A large number of training courses, lectures and events take place at the Emstal location. For example, the “Ytong Silka Academy” offers numerous continuing educational events. For example, those who want to gain the qualification as an energy consultant or expert in building damage assessment can be trained in seminars at the end of which, an official certification exam from Dekra is available to the participants.
