Education & HR

Many industries are characterized by an ever growing need for educated and well-trained people, partly because of demographic reasons but also due to the growing competition and volatility of the job market between and within the different industries.

Often the PT/MC industry experiences a growing competition for attracting the right people. EPTDA is aware of this fact and wishes to support its members today and in the future in providing the right strategies to hire and retain personnel. Dealing with the industry leaders on a daily basis, EPTDA is willing to introduce its members the latest developments of the industry through the offering of educational programmes at its annual meetings and other gatherings. EPTDA shows also its ambition to go even a step further in the near future by providing executive training / master classes. Its common objective is to contribute to the attendants' knowledge of various industry-related topics as well as to the personal development of everyone.

EPTDA offers several types of education and training.
