Disseminating necessary knowledge is useful as long as it is available for those who need it at the right moment. The creation and transfer of knowledge is not a goal in itself: it is a means to reach a higher goal.

The Training area emerged as a response to the growing demand for knowledge transfer activities in projects developed by Sanigest Internacional. Projects in this area can involve offering training activities for specific components within a project, as well as those projects exclusively based on the transfer of knowledge.

Sanigest is convinced that knowledge must be disseminated, and therefore, we have invested significant time and effort into designing data construction and transfer methodologies that adapt to the characteristics and needs of our clients, in order to cover any of the following scenarios:

  • Need of new knowledge within a target group
  • Need to update previously acquired knowledge
  • Need to unify knowledge within different groups

Each training project or component undertaken requires the Sanigest professionals to diligently study and understand the characteristics of the individual or group to be trained, their environment, and the expected application they will make of the knowledge acquired. This is the starting point, to develop the theoretical and practical training strategies that best adjust to the compliance with the project’s objectives. Our goal is to actively engage trainees so that they receive hands-on training with the thematic contents involved in a project; in other words, learning by doing.
Our training events are conducted by internationally experienced professionals who put their technical and academic experience at the service of the participants in order to satisfy their most minute needs. Based on its experience in coordinating local and international training events, either one day or several weeks long, Sanigest Internacional continually strives to uphold its number one goal: transferring knowledge. As a result, value is created for our clients.
