Professional training related to practical work on high class level

VDG-Akademie is the qualified and innovative provider of professional training for the foundry industry which covers all qualification requirements on all hierarchical levels from managing director to production worker with its wide choice of arrangements.

Qualifications and certified degrees acquired at VDG-Akademie meet highest claims and therefore enjoy high reputation not only within the foundry industry.

We are strongly networked and closely integrated into the functional structure of VDG and BDG. Apart from this we cultivate successful cooperations with universities, schools for vocational training as well as external providers of professional training.

Our events are organized within our own rooms in Düsseldorf at Haus der Gießerei-Industrie, at external venues or as well as in-company training.
