The German Textile Cleaning Association cooperates with the DAISEC as a federal association to systematically teach future topics as part of the Digitalization Manager (incl. AI and Cybersecurity) qualification program.

As part of the program, entrepreneurs and managers consolidate and expand their knowledge in the areas of process digitalization, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity over the course of 40 hours of instruction. On November 14, 2023, 10 participants met at the kick-off event of the qualification program in the Digital Learning Factory of the Mittelstand-Digital Zentrum Hannover. The focus was on digital production technologies, application examples and the problems faced by the participating companies.

The qualification program "Digitalization Manager" supports participants in the application of AI technologies and in recognizing potential uses in different areas of the company. In addition, they learn the application-related basics of IT security in order to protect themselves more effectively against cyber attacks. Using case studies and exercises, they gain experience and learn how to use digital tools and technologies securely in their companies.

The participating companies receive a tailor-made offer through basic training courses and individually selectable in-depth training courses that build on the basics. Each online session lasts four hours, with the learning content and technical focus being accentuated in a face-to-face kick-off workshop with the participants. For the program, the DAISEC cooperates with its core partners, the Mittelstand-Digital Zentren Hannover, Lingen.Münster.Osnabrück and Handwerk.
