Perfect organized training. Highly knowledgeable and professional instructor.

John Apostolidis, Miltech Hellas S.A.

Attended to re-certification class as a remote course, all went smoothly and classes/exams worked perfectly. Even though I like travelling, I hope the remote classes will be an option in the future as well, because it’s much easier to schedule when there are no travelling days away from work.

Päivi Karhumaa, Innokas Medical

Dear PIEK Organization,

The training fully fulfilled my expectations.
The training was provided in a very professional way, using theoretical and practical examples.
Since the beginning, I liked the email communication and professionalism from Wendy, providing all of the necessary information.
The trainer Stefan was very nice, gentle, calm and knowledgeable while explaining us all of the materials and raised questions.
All of the provided materials, laptops, marketing materials were on the highest level.

If I have the chance in the future, I will choose again PIEK Organization as IPC Training Provider.

I wish you everything the best in the future and please keep doing great job to have fully satisfied customers.

The big advantage of PIEK is that they have in-company courses as well as courses at their head office. They are flexible and can do courses in both English and German, which is very handy for our company. Besides, PIEK offers the full range of IPC courses, which is also a big plus.
