Vocational Training by REFA

The aim of REFA is to increase industrial efficiency through vocational training. The REFA Methodology includes the traditional core knowledge of REFA which has been continuously updated since 1924. The core methods focus on optimising work processes as well as evaluating operational data.


When methods and tools according to the REFA Methodology are used, it is possible to look at work processes in a systematic and holistic approach so that the entire value-added chain of an organisation can be analysed and optimised.

Noteworthy is REFA's neutral approach to tariffs. Before a method is up-dated and published, the content is checked by the Confederation of German Employers' Associations (BDA) and the German Confederation of Trade Unions (DGB).

The courses are held by certified REFA trainers who are experienced in the practical work processes of companies.

The training consists of lessons, group work and case studies. It includes practical examples from different sectors of industry as well as practice-related training to make the participants capable of applying the methods.
