About our trainings

wibas trainings follow the motto "learning by doing". We are convinced that the fastest way to learn something new is to put it into practice. And not only when you are back in the company, but already during your training with us. That's why our training courses are a mix of practical examples, interactive methods and varied moderation.

The wibas training center

Most of our face-to-face trainings take place in the wibas training center in Darmstadt. Here you will experience a unique atmosphere that implements New Work and promotes creativity.

Lots of space and light for good learning

Our light-flooded training rooms offer plenty of space for plenary and team work - and the opportunity to move around in between. Floor-to-ceiling windows and a view of the surrounding park give your eyes a break from time to time.

Design thinking equipment for active working

So that you can work well, we have the Hasso Plattner Institute's mobile Design Thinking equipment on site. This allows you to organize your work situations in the training in the way that suits you best. Flipcharts and toolracks with materials are distributed throughout the room. Everything you need for good group work is within easy reach.

Best coffee bar in southern Hesse

We have the best coffee bar in southern Hesse. Perhaps. At least for a training center. There's a real portafilter machine here - and trained baristas will conjure up the coffee you like best. There are also healthy snacks and something sweet for in between.

Workshop instead of death by slides

In our workshops we follow this clever sentence from Confucius: "Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I may remember. Let me do it and I will be able to do it." Learning by doing is the motto. Because we are genuinely committed to ensuring that training with us really helps you progress.

The special thing about wibas training courses: they are workshops.

Our training courses are based on practical examples, interactive exercises and varied moderation. Each training course has an individual agenda tailored to the participants. This turns them into interactive learning workshops. We are able to do this because our trainers come from a practical background and know the techniques and methods they teach in the training courses not only from hearsay, but have also put them into practice themselves. As a participant, you benefit from real-life examples and concrete implementation aids that make your work easier.

Interactive design

We focus on learning through experience in our training courses. There are no slide battles and no hour-long slide presentations. The main part of our training consists of exercises in which the participants work through and experience the content. In our training courses, we follow the thoughts of the participants - flipcharts are created live, so that we think and formulate together. This results in training courses that are tailored to our participants.

Remote or face-to-face training: the choice is yours

We offer our training courses in two formats: in person at the wibas training center or remotely. Both forms are interactive live trainings with the usual wibas flair. The choice is yours.

How remote training works at wibas

wibas training courses thrive on practical examples, interactive exercises, varied moderation and lots of group discussion. To ensure that this also works in our remote training courses, we use tools and techniques that make learning easy - and really fun at the same time. You will experience a varied mix of plenary sessions and work in small groups, during which the time on the screen will fly by. To ensure that this works well, our service team will give you access to our tools in advance. You can familiarize yourself with the tools before the training with the help of a guide so that you are optimally prepared. Our service team is also available to answer technical questions and provide assistance during the training.

This is what remote training looks like in practice.

wibas trainings interactive workshops are also available remotely

Our training courses are also something special in the virtual world. Our trainers hold the training sessions live and are in direct contact with you - while you are at work or in your home office. We use a variety of techniques that offer you plenty of variety:

  • Introductory elements and impulses that make it easier for you to get to grips with a new topic
  • A learning agenda tailored to participants, which we adapt as the course progresses
  • Group work with online tools such as whiteboards or mind maps, with which we work together on results
  • Small group work with online tools, but in virtual sub-team rooms where you meet in pairs or threes
  • Interactive elements such as question, feedback or voting techniques
  • Lots of breaks - because online work requires a lot of concentration


We have summarized the most frequently asked questions and answers about our training courses for you here. 

What does "early bird" mean?
The early bird price applies if you register up to four weeks before the start of the course. The prices are subject to change. All prices are subject to VAT. Accommodation costs are not included.

What cancellation fees are due if I have to cancel?
For cancellations up to 15 calendar days before the start of training, we charge a processing fee of EUR 100 plus VAT. If you cancel later, we will charge the full training fee. If participants are unable to attend a training course, their organization can arrange for other people to attend in place of those registered up to the morning of the course start date. wibas will decide no later than 15 days before the start date (7 days for remote training courses) whether a training course will take place. wibas may cancel training courses if fewer than eight participants are registered at that time.

If you opt for in-house training, we will coordinate the content and schedule with you and adapt the training to your needs.

Which hotel should I choose?
We want you to sleep well and start your training relaxed. That is why we have selected what we consider to be the most pleasant hotels in the area and negotiated favorable conditions. Please indicate that you are a wibas training participant.

Hotel Nothnagel 
The 3-star Hotel and Café Nothnagel has been a family-run business in Darmstadt-Griesheim for three generations. We use the hotel ourselves and value it for its personal atmosphere. In addition to newly renovated rooms, the hotel offers a swimming pool with sauna - and impresses with its exquisite patisserie. The hotel is three streetcar stops away from the training venue. It is therefore also ideal for training participants arriving without a car. -> Hotel Nothnagel.

Moxy Darmstadt

The modern hotel of the Marriott Group offers every comfort with colorful vintage accents, free Wi-Fi, 49-inch LED TV, USB ports, air conditioning and gym area.
In the western part of Darmstadt city center, near the main train station, it is only a stone's throw to the hotel. It is three streetcar stops away from our training center and is ideal for training participants who arrive without a car and want to explore Darmstadt in the evening. -> Hotel Moxy Darmstadt
