Education and training

The modular training course lasts between three and six months, depending on a person's previous vocational qualifications, professional experience and current level of knowledge. 50% of the employee's time is invested in this training course, with the remaining 50% spent working in his or her team. The course ends with an in-house exam, for which a certificate is awarded.

  • Phase 1: Self-study
    Refreshing/acquiring technical know-how needed for practical training.
  • Phase 2: Practical training courses with interim tests
    Training in the services and processes by in-house specialists.
  • Phase 3: Accompanied deployments in the Mission Control Operations Center
    Dealing with and resolving genuine Mission Control situations with the support of an experienced Security Engineer.
  • Phase 4: Examination and certification
    Half-day final exam, for which a pass is rewarded with a certificate.
  • Phase 5: Assignment in Sydney
    Extending Mission Control experience at the operations center in Sydney for 3 months.
