At the Südkabel Training Center we offer customized training. Our goal is to train your employees in the safe use of our products.

Focus on training

Assembly work in the medium, high and extra-high voltage range is a responsible task. Thus, smooth and safe cable assembly places high demands on the qualifications of your employees.

As a pioneer in the field of power transmission, we therefore offer customized training at the Südkabel Training Center. It is our goal to train your employees in the safe handling of our products. Our training offer is also aimed at engineers, technicians, project managers and other persons involved in power transmission and distribution who want to deepen their knowledge.

Our events take place in our training rooms in Mannheim. While the high-voltage training courses run on request throughout the year, we usually offer medium-voltage courses from medium voltage courses from January to February anually.


Installation training

We offer the installation trainings for beginners as well as for experts for medium voltage accessories.
