Our Academies in the EMEA region
Sysmex Europe’s main academy is located at the regional headquarters in Norderstedt, near Hamburg/Germany. We also have `satellite´ academies in Johannesburg, Dubai, Accra, Moscow, Istanbul and Tunis for our distributors.
We pay close attention to the facilities and services at our academies, as well as to their design and ‘look and feel’. Experience shows that people work and learn best when they feel comfortable. Of course, knowledge transfer remains key.
Knowledge is important at Sysmex, and we make sure all our staff members are well trained. In principle, the content and duration of particular training programmes are the same across all academies – although they may be slightly adapted to regional needs. Everyone receives equal quality education throughout the EMEA region. For example, all our trainers in our `satellite´ academies are trained initially at our main site in Norderstedt.
Thanks to our `satellite´ academies in Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Europe we provide great service to our partners and distributors around the EMEA region.
Our training centres in EMEA
While training has been important at Sysmex from the start, we have been growing so quickly over recent years that we needed more space. For this reason, we opened a new, principal academy in 2009 at our headquarters in Norderstedt, Germany. With a range of different types of training rooms, we can vary the type of training we give – from simple lectures to intense hands-on training in the laboratories adjacent to each lecture room.
Our first `satellite´ academy was founded in Johannesburg, South Africa. It opened in 2006 with the inauguration of the Sysmex South Africa offices and has been offering training courses to distributors in South and East Africa ever since.
We follow the same concept in Dubai, United Arab Emirates where we offer training programmes in English to distributors and customers in the Middle East.
Our `satellite´ academy in Accra, Ghana opened in April 2013. It is now serving our distributors in west and central Africa with all training courses offered in English and in French.
Our latest additions to the group of `satellite´ academies are in Moscow, Russia and Istanbul, Turkey where we offer the same quality education in local language.
In March 2016 we have opened an additional `satellite´ academy in Tunis, Tunisia to also support our French speaking countries in Africa.
