For a successful start

Good vocational education is the best foundation for a successful start to your career. The vocational colleges and labor-market subsidized programs of the COGNOS subsidiary companies offer a great variety of educational opportunities for graduates from all types of schools – for those with direct or more varied educational paths.

Whether your goal is working in an office, in a laboratory or close to people – our vocational schools provide students with a sound basis for the job market. Longstanding experience, dedicated teaching staff and close linking of theory and practice are the hallmarks of all our training programs at COGNOS. We attach high value not only to the quality of our programs, but in particular to a culture of trust and openness. Education at our schools is characterized by a spirit of partnership and tailored to the learners’ personal circumstances.

We intentionally chose to combine our vocational schools, technical colleges and universities to create an education network. This allows the students of our vocational institutions to learn based on the insights of the latest research. Even after training, the network offers many opportunities for specialization and further qualification. For your success now and in the future.


What do our students say about us?
“As a former competitive athlete I came into contact with physiotherapy quite early. When I was given the opportunity to accompany physiotherapists at work in the hospital during my year of voluntary social service, it became clear to me: That’s what you want to do too. I then decided on the Ludwig Fresenius Schools, because both the school and the instructors had already made a good impression on me. After completing my formal training I definitely want to specialize further, perhaps even study later.”
