Training / Description


Training is an essential resource for businesses and professionals, who live in a rapidly changing environment but nevertheless need to meet the constant challenges posed by the markets and competitiveness.

For that reason, ASPAPEL is completely renewing its 2014 personnel training programme, with a range of intelligent courses designed to back and support companies' own-in-house training programs.


new training model

Ten reasons for a new training program:

  • It identifies, encompasses and solves the real training needs of companies and professionals in our sector.
  • It is conceived to form parte of each firm's own training scheme.
  • Top experts from companies in the sector collaborate actively in its design: Training Work Group.
  • As well as renewing classic paper-related issues, it also covers the latest subjects of interest emerging within the sector.
  • Not only does it aim to teach new knowledge but also to develop current skills even further.
  • It includes seminar-workshops incorporating real case studies.
  • It offers a flexible format with options to hold courses in the classroom, on line or in-house.
  • For the first time, it includes collaboration with business schools.
  • It responds to the change of models set out in the new ASPAPEL Strategic Plan.
