Cortech provides professional, hands-on training as part of our long-term strategic commitment to driving the highest standards of delivery and support for our Datalog 5 systems. Our comprehensive training courses are delivered by experienced instructors and are intended to provide increased systems knowledge to situational awareness and end-user problem solving.

Our online training sessions are tailored to meet the specific needs of the trainees, sessions are fully interactive and hands on enabling participants to contribute and engage in discussion throughout, whilst still being able to witness the easy to navigate Datalog in action. We are delighted to confirm that our online training offers all the same benefits and interaction as before but with the added convenience of joining from your laptop or PC whether you are working from the office or home.

How Our Training Works

Both our Datalog 5 Engineer and Datalog MV Engineer Training Courses are CPD Accredited, meaning they can be recorded as a part of the formal CPD requirements from professional bodies, institutes or employers.

Benefits of Attending CPD Accredited Courses

I wasn’t expecting such an enjoyable course over teams but I was pleasantly surprised. Our trainer was ace and being able to take control and actually configure the training system was brilliant. Comfort breaks were well spaced and just the right amount.

Learning and Development

We cater for varying degrees of knowledge; for example, you may already be using or deploying Datalog, never used the system before or may not even be aware of some of the new and improved functions Datalog can offer.

By offering training, Cortech are hoping to empower our users and partners and prevent situations where lack of knowledge or understanding of Datalog could translate to poor perception or quality of the system.

By refreshing your Datalog training every three years, users can benefit from the following:

  • Stay current with the latest updates, features and best practice
  • Discover and keep pace with new 3rd party technologies
  • Learn real life examples from both the instructors as well as the other students
  • Increased productivity at work by applying the learned principles.
