Become a Biogas Professional

For nearly two decades, the IBBK has provided training and qualifications for existing and future plant operators. The practice-orientated courses are characterised by the well-founded experience of the speakers, as well as by the intensive exchange of experience during the courses. At the national level, training courses are offered in German and English; internationally, the training courses are held in English.

As part of our attempt to develop a uniform national concept for biogas training courses in Germany, in 2012 the IBBK became, one of the first educational institutions to join the German Biogas Training Association (Schulungsverbund Biogas). Within this framework, the certified ‘Basic Training for Plant Safety‘ and, from 2018, the ‘Refresher Course in Plant Safety‘ are being offered. Both training courses are in compliance with the quality assurance of biogas plants, as prescribed by the law in 2015.

An overview of our training courses is provided below.

Applied Practice + Study Tour

The #HANDS ON courses are particularly aimed at obtaining practical suggestions. Current and future processes are presented and ‘best practice’ experience is passed on through participation, handling and exchange. Daily plant operation is discussed realistically and frankly. The courses lead to a deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges of the biogas sector through analyses in the lab and visits to relevant plants.
These courses are held throughout the EU.

The #HANDS ON courses provide a comprehensive and practice-related insight into the daily challenges involved in the operation of biogas plants. Ideal for existing and future owners/operators of biogas plants, as well as local organisations, institutions and investors looking for a practical and realistic debate.
